We expand upon concept design principles used in the film, games and publishing industries and begin to build the visual intelligence of your worlds. We will design characters to fit a specific story and bring them to life. Students must have some proficiency in drawing, and in Photoshop.

DAY ONE- We review the components of what makes solid character designs and how they serve the story. We choose a story and begin to design the main characters reflecting their personalities, emotions and attire. The goal is to sketch as many designs as possible, integrating turn arounds to show the character at different angles.

DAY TWO- We refine the best three main character designs, bring them into Photoshop and work on textures and color. 

The goal is to make the final art look as polished as possible.


Graphite sticks, pencils, kneaded eraser, stick/barrel eraser, sketchbook, and iPad with Procreate or laptop computer with Photoshop.
