Animals by Thomas Hamlyn-Harris

Animals by Thomas Hamlyn-Harris

As an illustrator I draw a lot of animals. I have illustrated just about every four-legged, fishy or flying animal you could think of. To help clients get an idea of the range of styles and prices, I put together the chart below.

The creatures on the far left are done on Adobe Illustrator – flat, simple shapes, easy to animate and generally on the cheaper side.

Column 2 are also done in Adobe Illustrator but with more attention to detail. There are shadows, gradients and highlights with a consideration for facial expressions and gestures. This style works well for both print and digital design but is particularly suitable for app design. This style is easy to animate and engaging for both a young and mature audience.

Column 3 is creating using a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I spend a lot of time developing original characters that appeal to all ages. This style is perfect for book covers, picturebooks, packaging, games, branding and editorial illustration. Here is an example of funny animal characters.

Option 4 takes a bit of time as I use a lot of technical and scientific references. This style is great for book covers, spot illustrations, editorial illustration, natural history books, educational books and media. I use photographic references, do a lot of research and create the illustration using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
