Art – Character Design


Our new art project is to create character designs. They don’t have to be a full character yet – we are just focusing on their portraits.

We researched different artists that we liked, then made moodboards of their pieces. This is so we can get inspiration from their art styles and integrate it into our own work.


In one lesson we used basic shapes (square, circle, triangle, etc) to draw different faces from. I found that as i attempted to draw each face the shape gave me ideas of what their character would be like, which inspired me to add certain facial features. For example the circle would give a rounded face without much bone structure, this reminded me of a chubby toddler’s head so i drew a little girl for that shape.

Next – draw around 10 thumbnails of character faces
