GSA CHARACTER DESIGN
with Julianna Cox
6 WKS, TUESDAY, APRIL 25 - MAY 30, 6:30-9:30 PM
Whether you want to start a long-form comic, prepare your portfolio or collaborate with a video game designer, after the completion of this course students will have hands on implementation of the process of designing a character, from brainstorming thumbnails to a final, polished character sheet. Students will also learn how to work in a professional workflow; creating material than can be edited, duplicated and shared with a team. An understanding of design for function and the students own strength as a designer will be gained from this class as we explore different aspects that make up a character, both through personality and physicality. This class is suitable to both teens and adults.
