Anatomy of Character Design

Anatomy for Invention Drawing/Concept Design uses the anatomy of the figure as a departure point to discuss and explore body type, form/function relationships, and story archetypes. Using anatomy as a springboard to abstraction, students will be taken through a formulaic look at recurring character types using the genres of games, animation, and comics to explore a process and language of character invention.
