Our character and creature designers have worked with some of the biggest brands in the world, including Disney, Lucas arts, Warner brothers to name a few.
Our character artists are split into two types, character designers and character illustrators and they work in different ways.
Character designers will bring to life a character idea or concept and draw in a quick pencil outline style to establish the characteristics and dimensions of the character, before moving into full colour blocked out illustrations to flesh out the detail and final colouring of the character.
These designs are then used to help decide how the character will work and how it will be used, for example, will it be a product that needs to be manufactured or is does the character need to appeal to a certain demographic or does the character need to move in a certain way and be animatable?
Character illustrators create more finished illustration of a pre designed character in a variety of finishes and styles which are used for printed publications or 2d animation. This skill set requires more illustration skills as the images are usually more finished and not quite so loose for final print work. The artist’s work using traditional hand drawn pencil, paint techniques but also work using, digital painting techniques using software like sketch book pro, Photoshop, working by hand using a Wacom tablets or tablet computer.
The types of characters we make are creature characters, human characters, cartoon characters, monsters, animal characters, fantasy characters, robot characters, sci-fi characters, funny characters and cute characters.
