Exploring Characters

Creating a unique character for a video game, animation, or even a toy figurine involves having fine arts skills reinforced by a strong design process. Initially, students will study basic concepts, including how shapes, colors, and different approaches influence and work together for successful character design. Students will then progress through the creation of several of their own characters using both traditional and digital media.
