This 1 hour 45 minute A.M.B Animation Academy video tutorial is presented in a step by step drawing process. Upon viewing you will learn how to capture the essence and feel from a face and interpret it into your very own character design

The video reveals professional techniques used by the character designer to interpret faces from photographic reference into a cartoon character design. The designers approach is very different from the art of caricature and focuses on capturing the essence and feel from the source material as opposed to creating an exact cartoon likeness.

The tutorial will demonstrate the significance of drawing in terms of definite shapes and refining them into simple and appealing combinations that will result into a successful character design. The character art is specially geared to illustration styles based around 2D hand drawn Animation. The example used is similar to that of the well-established and celebrated Disney Princess.

The tutorial demonstrates the evolution of the design process from initial rough sketches to working out a design then drawing a tie down to determine the fine line stage of clean up. Once the drawing is cleaned up it is then coloured via the process of digital painting.
