View Full Version : Coming up with characters?

03-30-2005, 08:35 AM
I was wondering, I see all these awsome characters done. But how do people come up with there OWN characters. I am looking to come up with a simple, skinny, biped character so that I can make a short with him (or her) but I seem to not be able to come up with ANYTHING. How does everyone come up with there own characters?

Draw some sketches then pick the one that you like.

use other people's work as inpiration...than make your own version...you need to have some imagination though...and not all people have it.

I find it easier to think of a scene you'd like to see. Then imagine what kind of character you'd like to see in that scene.

Thanks you guys for all the feedback, I took your advice and got a character, a plot and now a idea for a short film :). Thanks you guys. Expect to see a short film soon.
