Character Design: The Thief

Ramsay is  a terrible and terrifying person. He is a thief. He steals shadows. He steals violins. He steals your hope, and your tragedy. He gives you nothing in return. He takes things that doesn’t belong to him. He steals cars and tires. And motors and pulleys. He steals coconuts. And bananas leaves off banana trees. Ramsay is a horrible, horrible person. He has no respect, no self meaning.

What is Character Designing?

They say that a picture tells a thousand words. But then that is just a conservative estimate.

A character is not a static design. It is a dynamic entity. A character is a multi-dimensional figure hiding in the garb of a 2D depiction. It portrays depth, timeline and interaction. A character is a persona. A character has life. A character is his/her/its own story.

A good character design narrates fascinating tales. It depicts attitude, poses, body language and emotions. It relays its existence. It doesn’t just sit there like a slob waiting to be dumped on animation. Animation only gives wings to the flight that is already infused in the character. A good character has a past, a present and a future. Its existence is encoded in its design. A good character design builds an environment. A character doesn’t float in vacuum. It exists with interactive elements. It has a home and a world.

A good character design creates a language. It builds the DNA. It breeds movement. Only then can a character evolve.
