Project City – Chase Conley – Energetic Character Design
Title: Project City – Chase Conley – Energetic Character Design
As a character designer, story board artist, and director, I’ll be teaching the fundamentals of drawing characters for animation. Whether you want to be a character designer, or storyboard artist, I will show you how I break the figure down in an easy to understand approach. Part of my design process is posing and moving the character around to test how well it will animate. This is the difference between just a static design and an animatable design. This is also a key skill you’ll need not just for character design, but for storyboarding and animating as well.
By the end of this class, students will have several character designs they can use for their portfolio or pitch deck. Students will also have a strong understanding of how to move the figure into energetic poses.
