Beatnik Monster, for Monsters University - Adobe Illustrator Tutorial

My task was to create a Beatnik monster with six eyes, two arms and no legs. For the much loved Pixar film, Monsters University. Not knowing what a "beatnik" was and how my character would move was beyond me! But after some research, I managed to develop what I hope to be a believable character, which could be seen on the set of Monsters University.  Once I had finished my character design on paper, the image was scanned and uploaded onto the software Adobe Illustrator. I traced over the image using the pen tool, this gave my character a more refined and tidy look. I look forward to our next Tutorial when we start to add colour!
