Consider all the angles

Depending on what you have planned for your character design, you might need to work out what it will look like from all angles. A seemingly flat character can take on a whole new persona when seen from the side if, for example, it has a massive beer belly.

In the Character Design Crash Course workshop at Pictoplasma 2019, Jurevicius and Rilla Alexander asked attendees to sketch their character in poses held by other attendees, life drawing style.

And if you’re going to turn it into a comic strip, a la Luke Pearson‘s Hilda, it’ll need to not only make sense from all angles but look good too.

How to draw Hilda from behind without her hair swallowing her silhouette”, how to draw her beret from above; a long and drawn-out battle with how her nose should look… these were all issues Pearson had to deal with when creating his character. The problems all ultimately led to design solutions.
