Every year the fourth edition of »Creative Aktuell« has a Christmas resp. end of the year themed tutorial in each of the chapters (focusing on Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator). So this year my project was to draw a Character in Illustrator, prepare him for Character Animator and set up the puppet there.

This is the final Santa Claus
Initial sketch on paper
Edited sketch on Adobe Draw
