In this tutorial we will move through a series of simple design steps to create a cast of characters. This design sequence gives you the freedom to create unique characters while also defining the overall look and feel of your world. We will go through the design of Sci-Fi cast, showcasing two opposing sides in a conflict: the rulers and the rebels. We'll go over how the decision to contrast an idea like Shape Design can create unique groups, while choosing to focus on simplified Tonal Design can unify the world that we're creating. Using these techniques, you will be able to design a cast from scratch, respond to a brief, or troubleshoot weak character designs.
