Christmas Reindeer Character

On Friday I spent some time designing my reindeer character for the Christmas mini-game I am making. To come up with this, originally I hand sketched a copy of a reindeer, then I drew out an idea for a more stylised image which would be easy to replicate on Flash.

I did these with a ball point pen.

I’m new to Adobe Animate and have barely done any digital art, but the artwork method for drawing this reindeer was surprisingly simple. I used a mixture of the mouse and graphics tablet to complete my first deer drawing. After that, I did a key frame animation of it looking up and down by redrawing and replacing the head a few times. Here are two of the final key frames:

I am happy with the outcome and I can’t wait to put it into a game.
