For my essay I decided to really focus on an area that I’d be happy to write-up an entire dissertation on. With character design and creation it’s a real big passion of mine to capture and relate a character within animation, film or game really well and feel as though there’s a real depth to them.
By writing and looking into the way a character is developed I can not just improve on my written and contextual and theoretical skills but also develop myself as a person who wants to either go into character design or animation.
So here’s all my notes and a little list of books I can look into to really help me get a better understanding of the sort of part of character development I really want to focus on. I’ll also be looking into how these theories and ideas will then help develop my understanding further by putting it towards some sort of context.
