A Random Blob Became a Funny Animal

Recommended Posts

Was just testing some new things in Affinity Designer 1.7.1 and had this random blob (curve) on the screen, and it looked like an animal, so —a tiny bit later— this came out. Tested the new stroke arrow options too (the feet). ;)

 

The vectorised voronoi pattern was generated with CINEMA 4D, rendered out, passed through "potrace", and then imported as curve into Affinity Designer. Not sure that's the best way, but works for me.

I know it's somewhat stupid, but I made some quick friends. :P

 

 

 

 

Not stupid at all.  Your "random blobs" are delightful!  They would make wonderful illustrations for a children's book.  I particularly like their smiles.  These are such friendly chaps!!

Thanks for the feedback. Glad you like my little funny ones.

 

Making a children book is something that crossed my mind multiple times (not necessarily for those 3 fellows here), only that I always struggle with the right story idea that makes sense from start to finish and can be told in the necessary constraints. Making the actual illustrations is usually the easy/ fun part. :)

“Once upon a time, a long time ago, in a land far away . . .” is the classic way to start.   From there you just decide what your little funny ones have, don’t have, miss and —always important — are in dire peril from  (and from which they get rescued, probably by another funny one, who becomes a fast friend).  Not too many words and loads of your charming pictures.  I predict you will be a major success.  The illustrations are the HARD PART.

You are on your way!  Nice little cat, added to the crew.
