Here is a group of 12 characters that I created in illustrator. They are full vector objects so you can easily recolor, re-scale, redraw them. I created these as flat characters so you only have the front facing view. If you want to take a look and see how I used them, watch the video. In the video I also discuss how you can make some of these yourself, and how to take full advantage of this set for your own projects.
From AI to AE
I also used the “release to layers” function in Illustrator so that when you import into AE you end up with a comp. In that comp you will see a list of layers that correspond to the different body or clothing parts. You can import and quick get to animating.
The Full Cast
Below is a full list of the characters included in this pack. Quick note: the "Old Man on Bench" in the bottom right comes with a newspaper as well. Watch the video above to see how I used the newspaper.
Free To Use
This pack is free to download and free to use for personal and even commercial use. No credit is needed, but I wouldn't mind it either :) If you want to share your project I would love to see what you use these for.
