Hey there!! Huge fan!! I've wanted to start a comic for quite some time now!! I know you don't know a lot about comic drawing but I was wondering if you had any advice on creating a real simple oc. I always get caught up in face details. Like noses or eye shape. Like I want to be able to draw a consistent character and then be able to add detail. I don't know if you understand that or not but if you could help me that'd be so so amazing!! Keep up the amazing work you do! Looking forward to more!

hey, thanks a lot! character design is one of my favorite things ever so ill do my best to help you out!

my advice, first of all, would be to not let the face details trip you up at the get-go, which is much easier if you approach the design process without thinking about them at all until later. this might sound counter-intuitive but i think those are things that should happen naturally as you brainstorm the character, and that brainstorming process can be hindered if you try to do details too soon. the fun thing about character design is that it can be very interactive, so you can let that work to your advantage! maybe a visual will help!

i’ll design a character from the ground up, so you can follow along if you wanna try this yourself with me! <3 theres commentary under each step with important notes. sorry if it’s a bit wordy lol

(ill continue under a cut; this is gona get long)
