Course development team:
Welcome to a course all about character design. This course includes basic information on what to consider before starting the design process and is divided into lessons that each contain detailed instructions on the topic.
We’ll start by looking at some useful terminology before making an overview on the design process itself. Afterwards, we’ll cover references, thumbnails, color values and palettes, polishing, and pixel art before summarizing it all. There’s also a knowledge test at the end of this course, so pay attention!
By the end of this course, you will have designed a character that is totally your own and made by you. For an artist aiming to enter the entertainment industry, it's important to form a professional-looking portfolio to attract the attention of possible employees. This course will help you do just that.
Many artists dream of a career of designing and drawing characters all day long. However, competition is serious. In that regard, learning and understanding the whole design process is essential for anyone who wants to pursue this career.
The design process itself is not just drawing, it's so much more. It requires researching, understanding colors, and preparing for changes.
