Characters are a great way to express your inner identity, whether it’s serious, spiritual, wacky or wry. We use characters in so many ways — cartoon characters share greetings on cards, logo characters advertise businesses, children’s book characters illustrate stories, avatars show inner selves in gamelife, and so much more. In this class, we will explore how to create and develop a character using real-world inspiration or our imaginations, and bring those characters to life by using them to express ourselves. 

Class 1: Character ideation. 

               Using reference and games to get your character idea started.

Class 1: Character development:
