An ef­fec­tive de­sign ap­proach

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

Some­times a de­sign doesn’t need a rea­son to look good. But good de­sign with a mean­ing is beau­ti­ful! It’s time to eval­u­ate the char­ac­ter, his de­sign and func­tions. Ask your­self ev­ery­thing. Why is he wear­ing a jacket? Why is the bow tie un­tied? Why is his jacket blue? Al­ways come up with log­i­cal an­swers – your client may ask you the same ques­tions.

Give life to your char­ac­ter

Now I’m about to add a lit­tle life to my mu­si­cal friend. I draw some ex­pres­sions on him, ac­cord­ing to what I think he might look like in the film. He’s a ro­man­tic fool, so I draw some funny faces. Ex­ag­ger­a­tion is one of the fun­da­men­tal el­e­ments in an­i­mated film, so don’t for­get to use it.
