Character Design

Kelly Light taught a Character Design 101 workshop at the NESCBWI 2012 conference which Jennifer Morris attended.  In the workshop Kelly had them do an exercise.  They made a grid and drew a random shape in each box, then were asked to see if they could make characters out of each one.  Jenn thought it would be fun if a group of illustrators I belong to did this. So here are the shapes and here are my really quick characters.  


  1. Great characters! well done! I think alot of us did a doggie in the left hand corner. I see I made it harder for my self and did not go out of the lines. Love your doggie and boy with pin wheel hat.! awesome :)
