Get your creative juices flowing:
This section is designed to help artists and writers better develop their characters. It will not teach you to draw or write but it will teach you to think about who your character is through the use of games, challenges, worksheets and other cool activities. I’ve put a lot of what I learned in animation school here so that you can benefit from it for free!
We’ll go over action sheets, turn-arounds, movement charts, expression sheets and more I have fun forms for you to fill out that ask questions about your characters you might not have thought about answers to until they were asked! For example: would your character wear name brand clothing? Even if your character lives in a fantasy world where there are no clothing designers, the answer to this question will tell you something about who that person is. Does he follow trends? Is he/she vain or humble? Do they give in to pressure? Are they wealthy? Do they like to show off?
Character Challenges: Here you’ll find writing games, drawing games and weekly challenges that help you develop your character physically and mentally.
Worksheets Fun question sheets to help you fill out character details such as their history, physical characteristics, mental characteristics, relationship to others & the world they live in, etc.
