Description

In this series of lessons, we will learn how to quickly generate character ideas based on an initial shape. We will get started by examining each individual shape to see which character features could be associated with the different areas of the shape. Next, we will lay a foundation of quick, loose, pencil-like line work, fleshing 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 male characters. From there we will refine our line work with more confident inked lines. Finally, we will look at a quick method of applying color in the form of cell shading to our character concepts. After completing this course, you will be better equipped to creatively pull character concepts out of a simple shape. Software required: Photoshop CS5.
