One of the coolest things about graphic designers is that design isn’t just a job, it’s a lifestyle. I don’t know a single graphic designer who not only works in the design field, but also designs for fun. And many designers love to craft their favorite cartoon, movie and other pop culture characters for fun, as evidenced by the massive number of fan art contributions on sites such as Deviant Art.
Another great thing about graphic designers is their willingness to share tips, techniques and strategies in the form of comprehensive tutorials that help other designers master their craft. Fan art and free tutorials: It’s a powerful concept, which is why we’re celebrating it here with the following 20 design tutorials for famous characters. Enjoy!
