Character design: Mexican Dia de Muertos Calaveras
I been working on this “cartoonist” simple style and I’m really happy with the results. Right now, because of the November’s Day of the dead (dia de muertos) festivities, I decided to draw some “calaveritas de dulce” (candy skulls), that are part of this mexican tradition. I wanted to portray some modern mexican people and a happy skull dog as funny skeletons.
Anyway, if you want to know a little more of this mexican holiday, here is an article about fashion catrinas on my girlfriend’s blog. It has some pictures! And, if you want to see more, here is my cartoon calavera character from 2011.
