About This Class

2210d43f

In this course, you're gonna learn how to design better characters by understanding shape language. Shape language is how shapes communicate aspects of a character's personality and mood.

Here are the topics I'll be covering:

  • What is shape language?
  • Where does shape language come from?
  • Shape language in cartoons.
  • Shape language in videogames.
  • Designing a character.

For the project in this class, I'm gonna be working digitally, but you can use any medium you like.
