Unique Character Design Tips
In my opinion, these are the most important factors in any character design: color, concept, shape, simplicity, cohesiveness, repeatability, personality and uniqueness.
Color: Any design with colors all over the place creates too many places for the eye to look. Keep your color design very simple and zen. Looking at the colors shouldn't be jarring or confusing. This isn't to say only use one color, not at all, but try to make sure the ones you use are harmonious. Avoid mixing and matching different saturations of the same color or picking colors that clash with one another.
My rule of thumb: Stick to no more than three base colors and some value variations.
Concept: Your design should have inspiration, even if the inspiration is just your intended character's personality or an interesting object that represents them. Your character could be a bookworm, and that would impact her posture, her clothing, her hairstyle...pretty much everything about her! You can design

Hi! I am an aspiring comic writer/artist. I'm going to school for Game Design.
I enjoy doing both 2D and 3D art as well as coding. Got questions? Send me a note! I don't bite.
Hai gaiz.

I know that pretty much no one cares, but ...

My old art is crappy! So I'm thinking I might do a "kick-your-own ass" kind of rehaul of most of the old stuff.


College is wonderful. That is an understatement.


Okay, bai. I have discrete math homework to fudge.

You are so talented! I love your style of drawings. You had a male char drawing, and it SO reminded me of Gauntlet Legends. It brought me back to the days where me and my friends would play that in the arcade. Keep up the great art and hopefully I'll be playing a game of yours.
