Cartoon Bear Face Illustration

30-Day Illustration Challenge

Day 10: Pappa Bear Face.

This was an exercise using the Freeform Gradient tool in Illustrator.

I’m not sure how I feel about freeform gradients. I think the results were nice, but the tool produces unpredictable colors.

It takes a lot of extra work to tweak the placements of the gradient points to get accurate color.

Special thanks to Adam Beu for the fun drawing (circa 1999).
