The use of dif­fer­ent shapes is a ma­jor tool in char­ac­ter de­sign. While var­ied shapes play a role in the over­all per­cep­tion of the char­ac­ter’s per­son­al­ity they can also sug­gest the move­ments or emo­tions of a char­ac­ter. A char­ac­ter made up of squares may feel more slow and sta­ble, whereas a char­ac­ter made up of tri­an­gles may give off a more ex­citable feel­ing. Cir­cles or curves are of­ten used for more lik­able char­ac­ters. This could also make them feel more friendly and bouncy.
