2 What is the character thinking?
Just as we imagine our favourite TV and film characters to be real, we should try to imagine the characters we create have minds of their own as well. If a character in a drawing is moving or acting then they should have a reason for doing so. Whether it be a broad action such as sprinting, or a subtle mannerism such as twirling strands of hair, the character being presented would most likely have a conscious or unconscious reason for doing so. Keeping this in mind will help to make your character feel more interesting and relatable.
