Character design isn’t only about drawing a character; it’s about developing an entire concept, world, and backstory to bring them to life. And it’s not an art form reserved for illustrators, either. Many different types of artists—including authors, animators, and video game designers—incorporate this skill into their work.
In this class, students will see how important it is to make characters distinct and different, with a clear impression of that character's uniqueness. In the morning, students will learn about the design process for creating original characters, while learning about anatomy and structure so characters will look consistent in every angle and range of motion. In the afternoon, students will compose their own character’s history, story and create their character in 4 poses.
