In this collection of lessons, we will learn how to capture the essence of a character based on their backstory and then execute it in a final character concept. We will begin this process by taking a look at the character bio and learning a bit about our character. After exploring the detailed information we have been supplied with, we will get started by first learning about a few areas that are critical to successfully capturing our character's essence. We will learn about the importance of her anatomy, pose, hairstyle, and wardrobe. After a few quick explorations in each of these areas, we will get started in painting our final character concept from start to finish. After completing this course, you should have some great ideas on how you can create more effective and appealing character designs. Software required: Photoshop CS5 and up.
