Develop what makes a quality character
By the end of the course, students will understand the standard pipeline used in the entertainment industry for creating character concept art, and learn how to execute a powerful character from start to finish–with focus on details, lighting, communication, and clarity. At the end of the course, students will be able to show completed work for the full design process, resulting in a final character concept for their portfolios.
NOTE: Students should already have a strong foundation in anatomy, drawing, and digital painting. (Course outline for each instructor may be different; for specific outline information, please select the instructor and click on “Request Syllabus” below. )
