Applying the mantra of practicing what I teach I immersed myself in squirrel designs earlier in the week for the Character Design 1 class at the Academy.
It's important for a character designer in the concept phase to be able to explore many possibilities of what a character might look like.
After trying out some head sketches the designer can move along into body concepts.
When the look of the character is locked down it's time for the rotation.
Coming up with the idea and adapting it to the needs of production are both essential skills in the world of Character Design.
