Character design coloring process. Warrior character design tips and technique if a part two of Warrior in armor character design tutorial. The previous post is mainly to capture the idea of the design element of the character, then establishing values (paint light and dark) or light source of the image.
In part three process, I am adding a dominant color along with complimentary accent colors and execute more design element to tight the piece together…and possibly some under lighting and some other secondary stuff that will make the character unique but still in the category of what it is.
Another important element in character concept design is you have to be able to convey his, her, or its personality and posibly its origin. Remember, you have only one shot to get the first impression out what kind of a character it is because it’s a one piece of character concept design. Interesting looks alone do not necessarily make for a good character; its personality is key as well. A character’s personality can be revealed through its poses, attitude, silhouette and what comes along with it such as costumes, weapon, etc. All the elements you put into your character will convey its origin and hopefully personality or persona. Is it intimidating? Costume can say a lot about a person like where or when it cames from, if you do your homework right… it should convey right away if it is from the Far East, medieval, rome, future, etc. The personality of your character doesn’t have to be particularly agreeable, but it does need to be other than interesting so research about patterns, design of any particular culture to accent your design would definitely help.
