Illustrator/ Character Designer/Animator
My name is Corlette Douglas I am a freelance illustrator from Fashion Institute of Technology with a Bachelors in Illustration and knowledge of animation and video editing . I am a hands on illustrator and animator with a traditional aesthetic, I like designing fun, creative characters for possible children illustrations and personal animated videos. My main mediums of choice are watercolor, gouache, and color pencils. I find that these mediums give a colorfully whimsical tone to my art, having studied illustration for 4 years I gained knowledge of Adobe suites such as adobe photoshop , adobe illustrator, In design, Animate/Flash and After Effects.
