About This Class

Off the Cuff Character Design!

In this course, you will learn how to create a character without the use of a sketch. I'll walk you through the entire process from start to finish.

The techniques I'm teaching you in this course can be translated over to other Illustration projects as well. By the end of this course, you will learn how to create a stylized character that has a strong visual presence. I will teach you how to build a color palette that will make sure the character pops off your screen. I will show you how to work with the line of action to develop a fluid gesture foundation which will use to build our character's action pose.

In this course, you will learn:

  • how to design a 2-D game character that works across all screens
  • how to apply color theory to your game character
  • how to build a modular 2-D game character 
  • how to work with my "Foundation First" approach to character design
  • and much more!
