In this series of lessons, we will focus on how to quickly generate character ideas based on an initial shape. We'll get started by examining each individual shape to see which character features could be associated to the different areas of the shape. Next we'll lay a foundation of quick, loose, pencil-like line work, flushing out some of the details of our character. During this phase, we will learn a variety of different ways to draw the features and forms that relate to a stylized female character. From there we will refine our line work with more confident inked lines. Finally we'll look at a quick method of applying color in the form of cell shading to our character concepts. Software required: Photoshop CS5.
