How I enjoyed drawing human-animals

During last months, I have been drawing only animals. Not common ones, but animals behaving like humans. And it is so much fun. I love it! What could be funnier than a ostrich playing a saxophone?

I have enjoyed like a kid. The fact is that I don’t remember drawing animals since school.

It is my second time illustrating a book about Fallas, a regional fest in Valencia (Spain). We wanted to do something different and funny, so we found hilarious to illustrate the book with human-animals. Animals taking part in all the events of this fest.
The result was amazing and people loved it!

The illustrations were created using Adobe Illustrator and were filled up with Adobe Photoshop like I show in my previous post.

To illustrate a book with coherence, you have to create your own color palette.
To make it, as always, I used some Pantone colors. I always read news from my lovely Pantone to know which colors are trendy and I use them in my designs.

You can choose one or two colors and then create your own palette with this Adobe tool:

I have enjoyed a lot and have improved my skills drawing animals. So I recommend all of you to draw animals behaving like humans! You will enjoy for sure! I promise 🙂
