In my opinion, these are the most important factors in any character design: color, concept, shape, simplicity, cohesiveness, repeatability, personality and uniqueness.
Color: Any design with colors all over the place creates too many places for the eye to look. Keep your color design very simple and zen. Looking at the colors shouldn't be jarring or confusing.

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin (https://www.deviantart.com/algaegoblin)
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.

you'll be seeing plenty of fanart for this completely badass webcomic from me in the near future, along with the other nonsense I usually draw. Like anthropomorphic countries. Heck of a mix, but that's how I roll.
oh and I might make a new DA ID picture finally but we'll see how that goes
thanks for stopping by my page!
Originally I was like, "forget my DA, it's ancient, nobody wants to see that, it's too much effort to revamp it just so I can shove my silly anthropomorphized country fanart somewhere"
but then I realized that I really did want to shove my anthropomorphized country fanart somewhere.
Also, I'd like to be able to +fav things by my favorite artists on here without being embarrassed about what they'd find if they clicked back to my page... hahaha.
Nothing to see here; move along, move along! Thanks for stopping by, though!
(I'm also c_rowles on Livejournal, if that helps anyone recognize me)
