Lesson 3 in Character Illustration

Lesson Information

Now that you have a concept for your character formed, Philipp will take you more in-depth into the design process. You'll focus on details like the linework, clothing, and major focal areas. Then, you'll look back to the design theory of the past two Lessons and assess your project based on those principles. Finally, you will prepare for the painting phase by filling in the linework, adding ambient occlusion and blocking in colors. 

Study and Elaborate

First make 10 material studies, focusing on small objects or interesting surfaces. Limit yourself to 20 minutes or less for each one. 

Then, elaborate on your last Homework's sketch until it is ready for the painting phase.

Extra Credit

Follow up on the other two bonus characters you created in the previous Homework, and prepare your entire trio for further development.
