"All art requires courage"
Much like my leaf/tree tutorial this is another crazy simple guide but it might help a few of you! I love to get a lot of thumbnail type ideas down first before I settle on something final so I like to use this quick method as a way of exploration, basic research into what I’m trying to achieve and a means of creating variety in my work (I hope!) On the flip-side I know a lot of people struggle with creating environments in general, this could be a good way to ease yourself into drawing them without getting too bogged down in details and technicalities, just blasting your ideas down onto a canvas!
Weekly Art Challenge #92 (June 29th-July 5th)
I hope everyone is doing well!!:) This week the challenge will be focusing on character designing! I love doing character designs and creating not only their appearance but also personalities. It can be a really fun process and is also vital to any story telling.
So as the challenge says, design a character but take inspiration after one of the elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Air). Not only should their appearance reflect the different qualities of the element you have picked, but their personality should as well. For example, if I picked a character based off of fire, then their personality is probably going to be a lot more forward and powerful and feistier than of a character inspired by it’s opposite water. Each element has its cultural/social associations so be sure to consider those as well. Fire is a strong fearsome destructive element, Water is a soft calming relaxing element, Earth is a peaceful harmonious element and Air is a free flowing boundless element. So in a nutshell, be sure your design reflects these characteristics.
Things to note:
-As previously stated, be sure your design revolves around one element (as always you may submit up to two submissions)
-This is a character design challenge.
-All mediums welcomed.
-Be mindful with tagging.
[The deadline for this challenge will be July 5th at 11:59PM EST]
