Step by Step: Character Design Process

The Character design process is an easy one to follow as I have tried and tested it myself one of the key steps is to find and gather photographs of what material the character is made out of what eyes and feet look like etc.

Well done!!! Next we need to look at what kind of character you would like to make, I recommend this book “Writing and Illustrating the Graphic Novel” it really helped me. There are some key points from the book and it would be good i you could do this with every character you make as it makes your character more believable and will help you draw it accurately.

What does your Character Do?

What Interests does your Character have?

Where does your Character live?

What is your Characters secret?

What does your Character want?

Do some sketching like the above find out whether you want it too look menacing and evil or too adorable to resist. I told you Character design wasn’t that hard this is where we revert back to pinterest for example if I wanted to make mine an “Egg Character” I need to know what an Egg looks like instead of guessing which is the sin of the Art world in Character Design always have a reference.

So you want to build a cool YouTube Art Banner?

I created this today in only an One Hour or Two.

Here are my steps to help you out:

  1. Decide what you are trying to say or if you are making it for someone else get them to sketch it or give you their ideas on what they are trying to get across
  2. Who is your audience and what do they like?
  3. First find or Make a background for your YouTube Channel the size of the white area around should be 2560x1440px and the actual banner should be 1546x423px 
  4. Make sure you put the Text or Icon on the Right Hand side because you profile logo for YouTube will appear on the Left Hand side
  5. Find yourself a good Font this Font I found using a site that is free called DaFont just click the Link and Donate a bit to the Author : )
