Character Sketch Process by LuigiL Character Sketch Process by LuigiL
I thought it would be nice to share one of the ways I sketch out character ideas.

I first sketch the simple head and body shapes, then I sketch lines for legs and arms to create a pose template. I then use the sketches to create a final character design :D

It's a fun way for me to just create random characters!

I hope you like it!

awesome! i've always wondered what goes through the heads of people with cartoony styles. I can't draw what i can't see and even then its not exactly accurate but this has expanded my mind! thanks a lot

when you do all those shapes do you have any idea of what you will do ?
I'm trying to do the same but without previous idea it's a bit difficult ^^"

I've started 'shape practice', which you recommend as a warm-up.
Works surprisingly well ^__^

This reminded me of that :)

I like this process myself. It's a great way to experiement with different head and body shapes. I think I like the chieftan character on the far right and the businessman in the center; their square body shape stands out more for me than the other characters. The tatooed fisherman third from the left is pretty cool too.

I should try this. One of my passions with animation is Character Design, but my mind likes to skip over the simple/basic shape step and just go straight into the clothing design and physical appearances, so I don't have a lot of development like this. :bucktooth: And it drives my teachers nuts...
