Character Design: An introduction

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process  which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character  through his/her physical appearance. 
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Thank you very much (^^)

A very, very, VERY belated Happy Birthday.  Hope it was a great day for you!

  The last few months has been nuts.  My daughter graduated high school in June, then we spent most of the summer getting stuff together for her first  year of college.  She is in her first semester of art college, on the other side of the country.  Things are finally calming down . Still not used to having her around, but happy she's where she wants to be and is doing well.

Oh, your daughter has started studying at art college.
Congraturation! It's really good for you. (^^)
And your daughter must have really thanked for your great help.
I'm wishing you two the best.

Thank you!  I will pass your good wishes on to her. :) She has started a comic but I don't think she has posted it anywhere yet. I have seen it though.  The school she is attending is one of the few in the US that offers comic art as a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. That's her plan, a BFA in comic art. It's a small school, I want to say maybe 800 or so students in total, undergraduate and post graduate. So small classes and opportunity for feedback and assistance.  I am quite proud of her.  She loved drawing since she was a small child.  I think she is in a good environment although where she is now gets really, really cold and snowy and icy in winter. Where I live and where she grew up tends to be hot and humid for about 6-8 months a  year. Should be interesting to see how she she handles that :)

Studying comic art lead to BFA degree, ...that's wonderful! Of course, it might not be easy. But she loves drawing like you said, and I'm sure she'll accomplish that(^^).
It looks her college is in northern region. It will be getting cold in the season from now. So please be careful of her health (you too). I also don't like cold season. I want autumn to continue...(^^)
