1 Flip the im­age of your front view and edit from there to draw the back view. Take note of per­spec­tive, re­draw­ing some ar­eas as nec­es­sary. If your char­ac­ter has lay­ers or items they nor­mally carry, in­clude them. Shad­ing and ren­der­ing isn’t key. Clar­ity of your char­ac­ter’s de­sign is. 2 In­clude the usual fa­cial ex­pres­sions, such as happy, sad, an­gry and also fear. Try to also think about your char­ac­ter’s per­son­al­ity and make use of your de­sign to ex­press how they’ll look and feel in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions. Keep any cap­tions short, to re­duce clut­ter. 3 Ar­range your im­agery and text ex­pla­na­tions sen­si­bly, and be sure to in­clude a fully ren­dered piece of char­ac­ter art. Con­sider us­ing dif­fer­ent fonts at a range of sizes to add to the in­for­ma­tion on show. The place­ment of all your el­e­ments is im­por­tant. Clar­ity and con­sis­tency is key!
