Zordox, Galactic Emperor
Some of you may have noticed before in this portfolio a strange animal, a mix between a fox and a piggy, and also with wings. It is a foxgy, a creature that my husband and me conceived when we start dating. Well, we call it zordo, in Spanish, for fox (zorro) and piggy (cerdo). I love this animal so much that I put it even on my wedding merchandise!
I was thinking of creating something new with vectors and with reds or oranges shades. And then I remember one of the stories my husband and me created some years ago about a baby foxgy called Zordox. He is a space conqueror despite his age and, eventually, he will become the Galactic Emperor! It is an adorable character and is very funny to make creatures with vectors, so I started right there with Illustrator.
However, in the middle of the process, vectors became more complex than I thought. I had so many shapes and gradients to keep in mind that I started to have problems with global lighting. To fix that, when I finished the vectors, I put them on Photoshop and make the lighting there. I also added more complexity to the reflections and the shadows, making a better blending.
I am satisfied with the drawing because I love the final colors and all the textures work. I hope you like it too!
