Designing Characters

Today I’m going to be talking about the process I went through to design the characters for Ristorante Amore :)

Designing characters is something I find to be very enjoyable. It’s fun to visually design a personality to create a physical person. What I am trying to do is visually communicate everything I can about this character to the viewer and I use all the visual tools at my disposal, from line to colour. I have to communicate who this person is, what they think, how they act, what their personality is like. This will need to work with the written information provided to create a greater whole, a more fulfilling character.
