Project Description

Assignment

After understanding the important place storytelling has in character design (and how to best do it) you'll be doing so by creating 2 versions of the same character. Refer to project-outline.pdf in the Attached Files section for character ideas and a more thorough breakdown of what is required.

Deliverable

On the project page you will be submitting the following:

  1. Your first drawing
  2. The questions and answers you used to create the concept of your second drawing
  3. Your second drawing

Bonus points for fleshing out your character past the initial sketch ;)
