Morcegão Vale Tudo Fight Shorts

I designed some Vale Tudo fight shorts. This style of shorts was popular with fighters a long time ago in Brazil and have since been a staple of MMA fighters and nogi grapplers the world over. My version features a big bat that I drew. (Big bat in Portuguese is known as Morcegão).

Here's how I put the design together:-

1. Quick sketchbook rough

2. Larger A3 working roughs, lots of them!

3. Settled on this facial expression and wing shape

4. Vectoring up in Illustrator

5. Laying out on a template I mocked up

6. The real thing

The Morcegão vale tudo fight shorts are available here at my Meerkatsu store.
