Explore your creations
When creating characters for film or games, you’ll probably need to explore your character more. Try out different angles, poses, moves or expressions. The people modelling or animating your character might need more information on the way they look from a certain angle. So don’t stop at just one pose or expression. Get to know them!
Tell a story
The key aspect about creating characters is their story. That’s why I’ve added this little Rubik Cube fella. It’s crucial that you get to know as much as possible about the characters and their story before you create them. The more you know about them, the better you’ll feel about sliding under their skin and finding the right visual solutions to bring them to life.
