Initial Character Design Work
This week you are to begin your initial research into your character design. For next week's class you will be expected to present your initial research that will inform your preparatory character design sketches to the rest of the group for tutor and peer feedback. This work should be uploaded to a blog created specifically for this module. Please bring the blog link next week so that your work can be added to this module blog. Remember to create regular blog posts to document your process and progress on this module.
Below are some examples of character design sketch sheets.
You may also want to start thinking about the colours and textures you will want your character to be and add some colour studies/reference to your character sheets.
