3-Shape Character Reference

  • I am not sure how many of you follow the Etherington Brothers. They do a bunch of great (and free) tutorials called 'How to Think When You Draw'. The also a writing one.

    One of the tutorials uses 3 shapes to create characters. You can see it here.

    Long story short, I wanted to create every possible option available so I use a chart to work through character design.

    Here is the first page:

    3-Shape Characters - Page 1

    I will add the other images as I finish them, there will be 9 pages.

    Or you will be able to see them at my website: https://www.theprairiefox.com/reference

    I thought you guys might find these handy as reference when doing character design.

  • Thats really interesting. Ive never heard of them. This will be a fun page to reference when designing. ❤

  • This is so cool! I love this idea and everything you've already done with it.
    Definitely a good tool to have and hone.

  • Haha, this is so much fun! I am going to save your picture!
