In this lesson, we’ll break down the concept, start gathering reference, and look at how we’ll approach the creation of our character.

When creating a moodboard and gathering reference, don’t just pick out the first set of images from a Google search. Remember to think about the story, the characters, their backstory. For instance, what clan do they belong to? How can this inform your design? What is the relationship between the characters in the story? Thier age, job, etc.?

You don’t need to go into method acting mode, but do get under the skin of the character and delve into thier mindset and what makes them them.
