Intensive Character Art Workshop
with Christine Mitzuk
With Christine Mitzuk & David Ginsberg
Learn how to create character art that tells a story. In this 5-day workshop, Christine will share the skills and process she uses to create character art for various tabletop games, including Ultimate Werewolf Extreme by Bezier Games. We'll explore ways to develop the visual "story" of a character. The art needs to communicate a lot: who the character is, what their role is in the game, and the context of the game. To achieve this, we have several visual tools to use, including gesture. We will work through the process from idea generation to rough sketches, photo reference, and on to final art. Students will come away with a basic understanding of how to develop visual narrative and, at the very least, a start on their final character art. Most of the workshop will take place at The Atelier. At least one day will be spent at David Ginsberg's photo studio to learn how to get a good reference. Students may work digitally or traditionally, but will need to have a digital device to view and access the photo reference.
