14 Days 14 Characters
Fellow character designers...your mission - should you accept it, is to design a new character every day for 14 days from Wednesday, October 22 until Tuesday, November 4. Here's how it works: at 9am each morning a new gesture drawing is posted here on this blog, on our APW Facebook Page and on twitter (@APWanimation #apw14days). Design a new character every day based on that day's gesture drawing. Be inventive - take your impulse and inspiration from the daily gesture drawing - what kind of movement do you see, is there a predominant shape or direction that suggests a pose? Take the challenge and design 14 characters in 14 days. Post your drawings on facebook or twitter and you'll inspire others, too. Scroll down to see a bunch of samples from the 14 days... Many thanks to: Terique Roach, Gianna Marks, Danny Howard, Thang Nguyen, Franklin Yuan, Eunhye Lee, Eddie Chan, Christina Blackley, Felix Abcede and Yang Lu (And all who did the challenge and kept their drawings in their sketchbooks).
