Fundamentals of Character Design
with Stephen Silver

As a character designer, you will be responsible for exploring new ideas through characters. Your role as a designer will be to create major and incidental characters for animated television, feature films, videogames, etc. as well as possibly create characters for your own intellectual properties.

Throughout this course, Stephen will share with you the creative process of drawing that he goes through and his personal techniques for producing successful character designs. You will learn to understand clarity and shape variation, as well as many other important principles and elements of design.

In his lectures, Stephen will provide you with a better understanding of the drawing and design process, and give you tools with which to constantly improve your skills. This 9-lecture course will build your confidence in drawing while inspiring you with new ideas that will help you grow continuously.
