Character Design Commissions

 

Character Design Commissions allow you to take an idea that you have for a character and turn that into a vibrant and descriptive artwork. The image can show off your character’s personality, sense of fashion, their items and the world that they live in.

 

How does it work?


Mood Board

The first thing you will receive is a collage of inspiration images so that you can visualize the direction of the artwork. This will include inspiration images for your character’s clothes, hair, accessories and background. This is the plan for the the final design.

Below is a piece of the mood board for “ReImagine Work Podcast” Art.

Sketches

Next you get sketches of a few different compositions, pulling inspiration from the elements in the mood board. These sketches are possible options of what the final artwork could look like. There are usually 3 different sketches for you to chose from. The one you chose will be the skeleton for the final design. At this stage you can request small changes like a different hairstyle or jacket.

Below are sketches for “ReImagine Work Podcast” Art.

Colour

At this stage you will be presented with colour options applied on the sketch you have chosen. The colour will be influenced by the mood of the character, the environment (if it is a commission with a background) and/or the mood board.

The colour sketch “ReImagine Work Podcast” has the characters blending into the natural environment and so cooler tones were more appropriate.
