As a characther designer, how many drawings does it mostly takes till your boss or yourself are happy with the design? Cause what does it takes to make the design really work?
Nah! Just kidding. It takes “as many drawings as it takes” to make your boss happy.
There’s no real formula here unfortunately, but I definitely feel that a strong art director is key to strong designs. Sometimes they will have a clear idea of what they want for a character (or better yet a sketch!) and sometimes they have no idea. Of course it’s always more fun to explore characters on your own. We’d all love to have weeks or even months noodling and exploring a character. But most productions (TV) are on very tight schedules and we need to nail down characters as quickly as we can. It helps to read scripts, backstories, etc to figure out who the character is before you start and asking questions as you go. I would often send a quick snapshot of what I was sketching to my art director whenever I felt uncertain of the direction I was going.
May I take a moment to congratulate you on P'Li's character design? Older lady who looks gorgeous, badass and dressed to kill all at the same time = SO RARE. Thank you. ;_;
Wow! I’m **blushing**!! That’s so sweet of you! I do my best to maintain myself. It gets harder every year and with 2 kids around it can be a challenge to remember to try to eat right, stay active and still get plenty rest. But I still attribute most of my anti-aging to the Korean half of my heritage. My mother still looks fantastic at 65…………………………….
……………..……….. you were talking about P’li weren’t you…? =_=
