Designing Characters for Animation


1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

Designing characters for animation is all about creating personalities.  An artist may be able to make a beautiful piece of art, but that art must be in service to the creation of a believable character.  The viewer must be able to connect with the human part of that character, whether it's actually a human or, let's say, a fireplug.  And we must recognize what kind of 'person' that fireplug is.  Expression, gesture, design - all must contribute to the creation of that personality, and it should all come together so that a single drawing will communicate that.  And I think you know you've got a real character on your hands when that character begins to tell you what she/he will do and what she/he will not do!
