November Projects: Comic Character Design 
One of the most exciting and creative tasks in comic books, video games, and role play games is the process of character design! Whether it’s a clean-cut space hero, a mysterious princess, a fuzzy sidekick, or a beast from a forbidden forest, comic book artist Matt Ryan will guide students through creation. Investigate qualities such as gesture, posture and emotion that can make your characters come alive.
