This course teaches the process of character design in the entertainment industry. Students create characters from start to finish, going through the pre-production stages of research, concept, and the craft of editing before a final presentation of a well-developed character. Thumbnailing, silhouette design, figure invention and posing, prop and costume design, character archetypes, storytelling, and illustration techniques will be discussed. At-home assignments developing characters with industry-standard methods round out this course. Students are expected to cover the cost of supplies, estimated to be between $0 to $15.
