Cotton Candy Cutie by Chancake Cotton Candy Cutie by Chancake
(We call cotton candy 'fairy floss' in Australia, but I'm a sucker for alliteration)

It's been a long time since I did the sketch of this! I was drawing a lot of candy themed illustrations for work during this time and tried to keep myself entertained by imagining my subjects as characters.

I'm trying to get more comfortable with using adobe illustrator as I'm growing rather fond of vector/flat illustrations :)

Thank you so much! Haha honestly, I think it's easier to draw cute things on illustrator :p simplicity and uniformity are common aspects of cute graphics imo!

The fact that this was done in adobe illustrator is a feat in itself, it's an industry standard for a lot of design companies but they fail to tell you how aggravatingly hard it is to use the first time you lay your hands on it. Even now (after using it for a year for Uni work) still can't get it to work the way I want it too, and would nowhere be near able to do a full illustration.
So my hat off to you to have the patience to try and master the program called abobe Satan Illustrator.

This came out really really great though! It's so flipping adorable and pink that if I look at it any longer i swear I'll be barfing kittens, rainbows and pink sugary hearts. Great job! Really hope to see some more lovely completed illustrations from you in the future :D

Aw, thanks hun! I've come to love the program after having to really throw myself into it ever since I began working at my current job. I guess I'm lucky enough my stuff is simple and flat enough to translate into vector...! Certain styles are harder to emulate on the program. Yours is softer and more delicate, so I can only imagine how difficult it would be to render on illustrator!

I attempted to render in Illustrator using the mesh tool (god it was so long ago I tried that I don't even remember if it was that tool or not) and it was a nightmare and a half.
But regardless your style is really great and really lovely even if its simple and flat. Sometimes simplicity is best if its all executed well! (god i've been watching too much My Kitchen Rules)

But yeah. I'm really glad your back to uploading some illustrations, especially adorable stuff like Cotton Candy Cutie 8D

A watch? That isn't so bad. At Uni they made us use it to make an entire mobile phone (except for the letters/numbers on the screen)
It was hard and I ended up wasting 5hrs of my life on it.

oh D8 *makes the same face as your dA icon* that sounds painful and I thought mobile phones were an ass to do.
:'D we didn't get a choice they told us to do a Sony Ericsson touch screen mobile. I think I still have a side by side comparison too cause my class mates thought I friggen cheated.
