Toronto, Ontario web designer Tegan Mierle of Pilot Interactive has created “How to Draw Cute Things,” a fun and simple guide on digital illustration. She shows us that, by breaking down the subject matter into basic geometric objects, you can easily turn it into an adorable creature. Tegan suggests using either the Sketch or Adobe Illustrator graphic design programs. You can view her full step-by-step guide on the Pilot Interactive website.
This process can be applied by both beginner and advanced designers, though we encourage you to follow the process very closely for cutest results. We suggest beginning with a photo of an animal.
Choose your favorite photo of a kitty cat, sloth, hamster, whatever tickles your fancy. We advise against working with lizards, however, as they are not cute and we don’t like them.
