One of the cats who lives under our house. Illustrator, 30min.
Mostly done because I saw a picture of a bear in this sort of style posted on the Illustrator subreddit that had everyone going “oh god this is SO LABOR INTENSE I’d do it in Photoshop” and I wanted to find out exactly how piss-easy it would be to do if you actually know anything abut Illustrator. My estimate for the image that inspired this was a couple hours of work at most, and after doing this I feel like it’d probably take me an hour to get an animal face to a similar level of finesse. Maybe a little less after really dialing in the scatter brushes to draw the fur.
