sorry if this was asked before, but do you have tips or guidelines on how you make such interesting character designs? :0
I’m glad people think they’re interesting! Really I just combine things I like together. Sometimes I’ll just look at an existing design I like and I’ll think about what actually stands out about it to me, break it down into basics like “it has spindly limbs” or “it’s translucent and luminous” and just remix those elements with other things I like, especially if I haven’t seen it too often.
Pokemon just combined a mosquito with a bodybuilder and that’s both a combination I’ve never seen in my life and one you would expect to just be silly but while it IS silly it also works perfectly and looks badass as heck.
Think of “fusions” between things, whether or not they make sense together, and interesting ideas will come!
You can also work backwards from the final “function” of a design, like, “something that squirts magma like a gun would be cool. What could that look like? Where does the magma come from?”
