Featuring artists who deserve more attention...2
And here is another feature of artists who deserve more attention and if you
like their work, then fav their work or even watch them and support them.
They all answered with thumbnails at my forum thread, so I gave them
feature. Unfortunately I couldn't feature them all... If you like this article
and features then please support it by :+favlove: faving it. Or if you would like a
feature, I make "Do you want a feature ?!" journal every month, so
you're always welcome to post thumbs in it. Older news articles with
this kind of features you can see below.
Thank you :heart:

Unique Character Design Tips
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. This isn't to say only use one color, not at all, but try to make sure the ones you use are harmonious. Avoid mixing and matching different saturations of the same color or picking colors that clash with one another.
My rule of thumb: Stick to no more than three base colors and some value variations.
Concept: Your design should have inspiration, even if the inspiration is just your intended character's personality or an interesting object that represents them. Your character could be a bookworm, and that would impact her posture, her clothing, her hairstyle...pretty much everything about her! You can design

I made my new account a couple of months before dA added its "change your username" option, so I'm sticking with it! My new account is here: gwendybee, and I'd be very happy if you came and followed me on it. I'll no longer be making posts on this account.

New account! : :icongwendybee: :icongwendybee: :icongwendybee: :icongwendybee: :icongwendybee: :icongwendybee:
