    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

  • Noupe, 30 June 2008

    @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 :)

  • Andy Howard, 30 June 2008

    Great roundup guys, awesome work. Some good inspiration here.

  • JIM OSBORNE, 30 June 2008

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

  • Venu Shekar, 30 June 2008

    sites well worth of looking…

  • James Deering, 14 July 2008

    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.

  • tere, 22 July 2008

    OMG its so so.. wonderfull

  • blogsarticle, 10 September 2008

    Nice list! Thank you for sharing these.

  • MSOnWired, 23 September 2008

    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!

  • Lukas, 15 May 2010

    Check out this free character set http://bevelandemboss.net/free-character-illustration-set :)
