Hello again! For my second post, I would like to share with you some more of my thought processes while creating Mint in Canthem.
The main character is Mint, a green cat, which I created using my own style of art. In terms of drawing characters, she’s a pretty easy one. Her coloring is simple and she wears cute clothes, so she’s also fun to draw.
A big part of the city of Canthem is the marine life that swims through the sky. I have a lot of fun drawing panels, close-ups, and header images of marine fish and mammals. My favorite is the coelacanth, which is an ancient fish that has been alive for 360 million years. It was thought to have gone extinct 66 million years ago, but a fisherman caught a live one off of the African coast in 1938. They’re super rare and cool.
