Creating vibrant characters which breathe life and exhibit magic is a creative challenge I love. The process of designing memorable characters is a wonderful balance of discovering qualities to exaggerate and play down, and determining how to create nuances of backstory and appealing personality.
I have created many characters for commercial projects and my most challenging role recently was to design almost thirty characters on model for a 60 second spot. I drew almost ten of the characters in the round. It was critical that each view be consistent so it could be animated by a 2d artist. Please check out some examples of that exciting project here.
