Step 4 : Creating the Little Robo
Turn off the “Sun” group. So we can work on a plain background. We can turn it on later. Create the Little Robo character that we have in the sketch. Create a new group and rename it to “Little Robo”. Create everything related to this character in this group. Take the Ellipse tool, set the color to #65a4d0 and draw similar shape.
Remove the middle anchor points with Delete Anchor Point Tool. Select the top anchor point with Direct Selection Tool.
Pick the Convert Point Tool, hold Shift key and click on the anchor point and extend the handle like in the below image.
We need to add hands and feet to the character. Click on the Vector mask thumbnail of the shape you just drew, grab the Rounded Rectangle Tool and draw in the vector mask.
Create eyes with shape layers same as we did earlier. Create one eye first, rotate it a bit, duplicate and flip it horizontally to make a pair.
Create smile using the same technique we used before.
Draw the nose.
Draw the Shoes.
Draw this shape around the character under all other layers in the stack.
Draw antenna with Pen Tool.
Now draw some highlights. Draw an oval with color #c8e5f2.
Pick the Rectangle Tool. Draw inside the vector mask holding the “Shift” key.
Pick the Ellipse Tool, Press “Alt” key and draw like in the below image.
