About this cartoon...
This is an avatar / logo design for the new forest commoner – an online blog specialising in history and facts regarding the new forest.
The initial brief was to create an avatar for the author so they could remain anonymous, but had to be unique, fun and involve a pony.
I started firstly with a selection of sketches which were approved by the client before digitising the outlines. The last step was to add in some solid colour and a few highlights / shades.
There were several colour variations on this design before a final was decided on, and even a version with big red spectacles!
