    One thought on “Creative Character Design”

    1. Seeing a grown man wearing a Robin costume just isn't cool at all…This book is primarily for those who wants tips on creating characters for visual mediums (comics, animations, video games), but the tips would also apply to people developing character in written stories as well.Story, story, story is emphasized a lot after all. Colors, shapes, design - that's all here but since a written story will be describing these things, yeah I'm going to say anyone can use this.It's pretty straightforwar [...]

    2. Clear, concise, well written and enjoyable. Bryan Tillman manages to educate you on the framework of character design while keeping things interesting, providing plenty of examples, and maintaining a good pace that helps you move through the book. I will definitely be referring back to this book as I continue to learn about character design, and I plan to look for other titles by Bryan Tillman in the subject of art. Good read, definitely recommend.

    3. Didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know/couldn't figure out on my own. And the writing was way too casual for me. I ended up skimming through the end.

    4. Very hands-on! I like it! Great exercises, and a genius and funny author explains everything fairly simple. It's definately worth the money and will most likely get you kick-started on your characters!As he states in the beginning, the book is not an instruction manual. It must be read cover to cover for us to get the picture, and if we fail to do so we will leave with less than those who finished it.
