Giving your characters.... CHARACTER! by Vinod Rams
In this 2 hour workshop, senior concept artist Vinod Rams will give you insight into giving your character designs real personality and charm. Knowing your anatomy is only half the battle when it comes to character design, getting inside your characters heads is how a good design becomes great. Vinod will go over topics like expressions, posing, costume design, and the importance of selling your character to it's viewers. There will be discussion, demo's, drawing (traditionally or digitally) and critiques. 

If you're a student that is coming out to my workshop please feel free to e-mail me or post a comment about what character related stuff you'd like me to cover. The workshop is only two hours long so I have to keep it focused. You can buy tickets for individual workshops or for the entire week long festival, so you can take advantage of all the events and speakers. This is a small intimate event, limited to just 10 seats so buy your ticket quick before it gets sold out! 

Lots to prepare for both of these events, better stop blogging and get to it!
