CHARACTER MOTION! PART 1: POSING CHARACTERS IN ACTION
Here is a quick review of character design, with the characters just POSED!
In order to draw characters interacting in ways like DANCING, or FIGHTING, it is very important to know how their bodies work and how they will look posed and IN ACTION. Once you have that down, you can do more complicated things!
Below is a quick review, and then we are onto this week’s lesson.
SHAPES AND CHARACTER DESIGN.
Think of basic shapes– Circles, Triangles, Rectangles, and Squares are some good ones.
Those simple shapes can actually be very helpful when designing a character. The same goes for sculpting a 3D Character in Sculpey—breaking everything down into shapes makes it easier.
For people, think about using one or a few basic shapes or forms for the character’s body.
