I may be a little biased, but I think some of the work our illustrators have done for Moshi Monsters is pretty darn good. Check out our characters at http://www.moshimonsters.com

@Matt, Blackshade and charmie,
I am glad you liked the list, i can’t be biased to a certain one cause i love them all ;)

@Steve, Loved your site. Its on our list now.

@Liam, if you are good in Illustrator you should start creating your own character soon. I can’t wait to see it.

I am going to keep this post updated with your own submissions.

Have a nice day everyone and thanks for sharing :)

where are the faces? can’t illustrators draw faces anymore?
i think these are just excuses because artists can’t draw realistic drawings anymore.

If you want to see a real Adobe Illustrator web site, then visit mine. Next generation for sure, but it won’t be long before every browser but MicroSoft will be able to display this technology.

I really liked the Studioespace site at first but as i scrolled down the page the illustration got overwhelming. Their “Who we are” and “What we do” stand out but the smaller links get lost in the illustration.

Nice list!
