A strong silhouette is important with any good character design. One effective, professional method of designing characters is to begin by scribbling out multiple, nondescript blob-shapes on a sheet of paper. These shapes represent rough character silhouette concepts. The artist then loosely adds detail within each of the abstract silhouette shapes they’ve made to complete a character design concept.
Using the silhouette technique, campers will create an original character design based on a to-be-announced theme.
