Character design concept 203

The character design concept is the art of coming up with various designs and is used to inspire production.  This job is considered one of the most fun of all jobs! You can let your imagination go wild! You get a script or idea and you just start drawing! Explore with imagination. Don’t worry if it will work for production, your job is to just visually explore. Color and design all play a part in the creative process. As a result, the more you know the more you can explore.

How is this different from Character design?

There is much more exploration and experimentation. Therefore, your work might not show up in the final movie, however, it inspires the final product. Character designers will use early concept art to inspire them to draw for production work. You can get a good idea of what concept art looks like by looking at these art books. You should also be familiar with the character design classes we offer.  This is an advanced class. Subsequently, we will approach this session as a real working studio, We give you the character design assignment and you create the artwork.

How does character artist create their art?

Usually, in a studio setting, a director gives whatever information the artist needs to create.  During this time the direction of the film can change several times. There might not even be a script to work from! For example, sometimes all character design artists have to work from is just a spoken idea! Above all, you must be able to take critique. Most importantly, you have to work with the art director.

What is the key to Character concept art?

Play!  Play with your artwork and ideas! You really need to approach this with experimentation.  Explore and don’t be afraid to do things that don’t feel right. You can make as many characters as you want. in conclusion, this is hard work, but similarly fun!  As a result, you might think it will be easy. That is to say, this will be an easy class. During your play, you will notice how difficult it is to come up with a new character design idea. For example, your work will start to resemble each other. However good you are, it’s difficult to break your style. For instance, if you always draw cartoon characters, can you draw realistic ones too? Likewise, you need to be able to draw with different mediums and brushes.


Firslty you draw a rough sketch. Secondly you experiment with what you got. Moreover you try another one and another one! Here are some concepts we will discuss in the character design concept class
