Find the posture first
Félicie Haymoz has worked with Wes Anderson on both of his animated features: Fantastic Mr. Fox and Isle of Dogs. When embarking on new character designs, Haymoz likes to start by finding the individual’s posture. This element can start the ball rolling on the whole feel of the personality. “I try to capture the stance of the character. Are they hunched over, or are they sitting straight and proud?” She also notes the face is important to get right.
