Thanks to some of the lessons I'm teaching my students in the final days of school (five weeks and counting, yay!) I decided to do some practice at character designing. This method is what I basically call the "Frankenstein" method. Basically, I take elements from different figures that I like, splice them together and paint over it. It allows for a more hyper-real (in some cases) look to the character and, quite frankly, saves a ton of time. Being the nerd that I am, I decided to reach out to a group of friends and have them send me descriptions of their characters. Enjoy!
