The art of invention: Making fantasy creatures believable: Learning Character Development and Design

When a fantasy character is purely an invention of the artist’s mind, establishing authenticity is critical. Making the viewer believe in the character stems from using recognizable elements in a new context—juxtaposing real and unreal elements. Here you’ll learn what kind of combinations, shapes, and features create a certain kind of character, and how specific changes can shift a character from benign to terrifying, sour to sweet and how color can soften even the most frightening of creations.
