I am currently sketching my mascot which reassembles Twisted DNA ( Its supposed to be an gooey alien , and still a work in progress ) .

And i need some help with it , I can’t think of an eye style that matches his personality ( I want him to be evil but a bit friendly )

And after finishing the sketch I will scan it and start painting it digitally , so what color palette do you suggest ?

And what about that brush he is holding with his antenna ? , is it a bit of an overkill ?What about his mouth too ?

If you have any other suggestions , please point it out . And take into consideration that this is propably the first mascot I have ever designed :D

If you can sketch some of the parts I need help with , please do so and post the image of it . Your help is greatly appreciated .

First of all you should really work on your mascot, and it’s not about eyes .

As an inspiration have a look at http://www.cartoonnetwork.co.uk/ site especially ben10, if you are looking for aliens

cheers and good luck :)

I mean no disrespect, but rather constructive criticism when I say: learn first how to draw.

There are some great tutorials on how to draw the human/humanoid form in youtube without needing to buy a thousand books.

Getting to be proficient at drawing takes a long time, but by practicing at least a couple of hours a day, everyday and learning well all the parts; your skills will get better and you will be able to design your mascot without anyone’s help.

I know that you want it now, but by waiting and by doing it yourself the proper way (learning composition, human body, how to draw movement, how to draw heads, how to draw faces, how to draw hands, how to draw torsos, how to draw feet etc..) it will be far more re-comforting in the long run, than rushing a sketch now.

Hope my advice helps.

Try to use a geometric approach when you design logos and icons, for the moment: try to start from a geometric shape and use only circles and regular curves will help you, specially at this stage. Stay flat for the moment then once the shape is done you can start adding details, but work on simple lines, it will help at the beginning
