We've asked former students and friends of the Animation Portfolio Workshop ( who are now working as professionals in the animation/illustration industry ) to give us their all time 'desert island ' character design tip, ( you know the one you'd give to the prospective 'last character designer left on earth ' type of deal after the Mayan apocalypse is all done, etc ) .....that simple pearl of knowledge that will actually help you to draw better characters if you put it into practice relentlessly.
Go to our website here:
APW FREE TUITION PRO TIP
and carefully study, and practice the weekly tip that we 'll post there once a week...heck, even if your not going to do the contest this stuff will do you a lot of good!
Our first Pro Tip is from none other than our own Vince Peets, Director of the Workshop, and wicked storyboard / character designer / animator...etc.
