Ex­plore your cre­ations

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

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.
