I'm currently taking Nate Wragg's character design class and thought I would post my first 4 weeks of homework. Its seems like the theme of the class is starting with simple shapes that convey a character's personality and then adding details that echo that same shape language.
The first assignment was to design a monster starting from either a square, triangle, or circle.
We moved on to design crusaders. Mine is based on circular shapes.
We moved on to a character line-up to work on contrast in characters shapes and personalities.
This week we were just focusing on head shapes. I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to really work this out but I do feel as if each has their own personality.
