Character Design with Story /// Wizard

Character Design with Story /// Wizard - student project

Hey everyone! 

So since I'm also influenced heavily by video games I decided to choose the wizard. Initially I think D&D style figure, a robe of sorts, a point cap/hat, and of course a great beard.


Drawing #1 [5 mins]

For the second drawing I answered the following questions before starting.


What is their name? "Nimbly Fritz"

What is their personality like?
"Weird/ Cheerful"

Are there are any secrets?
"Addicted to sweets"

What is their job/What are they doing?
"Traveling Wizard/Mushroom Collector"

Not only did some random ideas just flow in the process but I will admit, doing things this way brought the fun back into my work- thinking about the story is always important but having this class break down how to be more efficient helped so much!

Finalization

When I have a little bit more time I will definitely be furthering my drawing. =]

Thanks for doing this class Hayden! I enjoy the way you layout information and go about the projects and lessons, it helps to get inspired.

Now I look forward to participating more, as well as any future classes.

**UPDATE

Found sometime to take my doodle into Illustrator and add a little color!
