My Character Design Technique

Step 1: The Name

I usually start by coming up with a name for the character. A great name can inspire the elements needed to imagine the character. However, I try to scale down my imagination as I may not be able to draw everything I imagine. Practice makes perfect, though.

Step 2: Scale

Next, I consider the character's size. What is the proportion of the head compared to the body? How big or small is the character?

Step 3: Clothes

Clothing is an important aspect of character design. It can reveal a lot about the character's personality and background. Does the character dress for action or fashion? Do they prefer bright or dull colours? Are their clothes well-worn or brand-new?

Step 4: Sketch

With a pencil and paper, I make several sketches to see what works best for the character.

Step 5: Outline

Check out the video, where I demonstrate drawing the outline for my character, Robbing Robin.
