2 What is the char­ac­ter think­ing?

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

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.
