Have you ever wondered how somebody works on a commissioned
project since the first email received? This course will teach you how
to face a Character Design for an animation project.

We will start since the client briefing and we will guide you through every step, since you start looking for references, building a mood board that
will inspire you to face the project and start with the first rough sketches, the style research based on cartoon basics and finding and doing the final art style that will define the whole project. We also will refresh a bit of basic drawing and color theory, taking references from very known
characters of the animation world.

We will apply all of this to our fancy characters, giving them a colorful
and modern look and seeing how they evolve from scratch to the final art.
