Day 7 - Meet My Dad


I've always been a fan simple animated characters and I thought creating one would take years of practice. Today, I can say I've finally learned how to create one on my own - not perfectly done, but getting there.

I wouldn't say this is the best representation of my dad, but he definitely has a thing for baseball caps. Through this exericse, I learned how to create shadows under the outline of a shape, which was to "Covert to Outlines." I'm not sure if that was the correct way to do it, but it worked. I was able to give the cap, his ears, and his chin some 3D effect.
