Freehand illustration is not one of my strongest skills.

This character design and model sheet was supposed to be just a preliminary study, to be handed off to a more experienced illustrator later on.

But Vetnil, a Brazilian veterinary laboratory that commissioned this work, liked so much of this first sketch that they decided to keep it as is!

I’m really proud of our furry friend “Valente” (Valiant), who became the brand’s spokesperson.
