Animation Lesson 2: Character Development

The next step was to take the character (see previous post) and develop it further. Firstly, by giving it different facial expressions (which I struggled with a bit - especially trying to keep the character looking like itself).
And then to draw the character in full, from a front, side, back and three quarter view - the beginnings of a Chracter Sheet.

The three-quarter view, I am told, is the most important when it comes to animation. I think it's because it's the one used the most?

So there he is: My first character! His facial expressions need a little work, and I think I should colour him and give him a name. And a story. There may be a future for him yet!
