Character Design Series: Shape Contrast

Working in the area of character design without guidance from a working professional is a challenge. How does a designer decide how much squash or stretch in a character is appropriate? How do you keep your design exciting yet still believable? How do you commit to a bold shape and know where the breaking point is? Join character designer Brooklyn Walker and learn about important design considerations such as clustering, splaying and angles, parallels and symmetry, tangents, proportions, straights against curves, and much much more.
