Watch the Full Video Tutorial HERE


Tutorial: Cerebus Pug

Artist: Piper Thibodeau

Piper Thibodeau - Piper is an up and coming artist that has a great sense for shape design/language and how to create characters that are insanely cute. She is a passionate artist that also can produce quality as well as quantity. Follow her deviant art page for daily updates on a new piece or character design. Her tutorial is laced with humor and gives a great insight on using shape language to tell the viewer more about the character.

In her Citizen tutorial, she focuses on character and creature design for the entire process. She starts with a look at influences and how to approach designing stylized creatures and animals versus realism. Then she takes a look at shape design and how that affects the look and feel of your subject matter.

Circular shapes and cute appeal. How to achieve it and why this translates as cute.

Angular shapes and dangerous appeal. How to achieve it and why it translates as threatening.

Square shapes and strength/sturdiness appeal. How to achieve it and why it translates as sturdy

From there she goes into Silhouettes, negative space, static vs. dynamic, and expressions! Watch the tutorial to hear the tutorial and her thoughts in it’s entirety! Below is her step by step on the process of creating her cerberus pug!
