Con­trast your cast of char­ac­ters

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

It’s easy to get lost in the en­joy­ment of de­sign­ing and paint­ing a par­tic­u­lar char­ac­ter, but re­mem­ber to men­tally step back from your pro­ject once in a while, and con­sider the big­ger pic­ture: how does this char­ac­ter com­pare with July 2016 the oth­ers in the ‘cast’ of your pro­ject? Just like cast­ing ac­tors in a movie, mul­ti­ple sim­i­lar vis­ual char­ac­ter de­signs will tend to di­lute their im­pact, whereas con­trast­ing char­ac­ter de­signs tend to en­hance each other. Height, vol­ume, pose, at­ti­tude, cos­tume and colour are all use­ful tools to cre­ate con­trast be­tween char­ac­ters.
