Character design 101

These Character Design Courses were originally in person but now we have also moved them online!

Everyone loves character design! Characters are what people connect with. Audiences want to love your heroes! They want to hate the villains!  Appealing design and relatable emotions is what you want. Monsters, animals, and people are all part of character design!

After completing each assignment your teacher will review and correct it.  They will instruct you on how to make your character design more appealing. Think of all the animated movies you love. The little mermaid! Beauty and the beast! Alladin! All these characters are lovable and relatable! Not just feature films but think of all the cartoon stars you have come to love. Rodger Rabbit. Mighty Mouse. Mickey Mouse. Donald Duck. Bugs Bunny. Tom and Jerry. The list goes on and on. Each show must design the character according to the budget and audience.
