Character design is an especially unique digital art field, because it requires not only creating a recognizable and creative image, but also because it requires capturing emotion and personality and expressing it through the character.
While art and design frequently focus on capturing emotion, creating a character and giving it life is especially challenging. However, when it’s done well, the characters come alive, whether they are realistic and lifelike characters or animated characters like those in a Pixar film.
In this post, I’ve showcased a few examples of lively character design.
