2D Character Design

2D character design requires a combination of artistic skills, such as concept art, sketching, and coloring, as well as knowledge of character anatomy, design principles, the psychology of shapes, and color theory. Exactly like Homer Simpson, a memorable 2D character with the unique use of shapes and design principles.

Our character design studio provides a collaborative process. We’ll create a range of sketches and different color palettes, then paint your selected sketch based on the selected color comp.
You can provide feedback on the painted concept, and we’ll happily apply revisions and changes.

Our Character Design Process

1. Identifying Your Needs
First, we must completely comprehend your needs and plan the path by your criteria and factors. We are dedicated to understanding your unique character design requirements, goals, aspirations, personality, background, usage, etc.
2. Sketching
After getting to know what you want for your project, our artists start to draw multiple sketches for characters. You can give feedback and edit those sketches so the process fits your liking.
3. Color Key
In this stage, the sketches will be colored in different combinations, and you select the best color palette that suits the design.
4. Final 2D Design (Concept Art)
After choosing the final sketches, they will be painted (based on your selected color key) with additional detail, including light, shadow, texture, etc., making them our final 2D design.
5. Model Sheet
Here, we show the character or object from multiple angles, with specific details and measurements. These model sheets are created to be our 3D modeling references and ensure you that the result can perfectly translate the 2D concept into the 3D design.
6. 3D Design
After all, the process of 3D modeling, texturing, and rigging is done. We adapt our process to fit the scope you need. Our character design agency offers optimized 3D character designs for your target medium, whether it is animation or a game.
7. Lighting & Rendering
For an awesome 3D look, each character is rendered separately into layers, including backgrounds, foregrounds, materials, reflections, highlights, and shadows.

Why Our Character Design Studio?

We are perfectionists by nature and can’t even deliver a bad character design even if asked to! An ugly art annoys our brains more than you 😀 
Several times, a client was happy with a character, but we were not, so we designed it again from scratch at our own expense.

Character design is not only an art but also a science. Our artists know and follow the required principles, including anatomy, shape language, color theory, etc.
You will be constantly updated to share your comments, apply any changes to the character design, and ensure we are on the right track. An exclusive account manager will be allotted to your project, who will manage our communications and respond to messages quickly. They are always available, on-call, and ready to jump on a meeting with you, even on weekends.
You may have experienced situations where delegating a project has resulted in both time and cost wastage, with a failed outcome. That’s not the case here. We will take full responsibility to ensure that the desired outcome is achieved once and for all.
With more than 2000 stunning character designs, our track record speaks for itself. The satisfaction of the high number of our customers speaks volumes about the quality of our work.

There are 4 logical reasons for you to consider outsourcing your character design:

  • Saving Money and Time: If you want to create your own character design, you are going to need several 3D and 2D artists, such as concept artists, modelers, animators, art directors, etc. You should know the hassle of the hiring process and all the horrendous amount of time and money you are going to need for that. Character design studios already have all those resources at their fingertips and can make your character design faster and cheaper.
  • Creativity: Have you ever considered that you can outsource creativity too? There is no need for you to do everything by yourself. Even Apple went after Hovey-Kelley and used their fledgling design firm when they wanted to invent the first computer mouse. Creativity is one of the character design company’s strong suits, and our artists have nourished their minds; by hiring us, you also hire creativity as well.
  • Quality: Practice makes perfect! A character design company has made numerous character designs and is constantly updating its knowledge of the corresponding industry. They keep up with the trends and watch state-of-the-art character designs and use cutting-edge tools, and can make the highest-quality character designs which might cost you and your team more time and budget.
  • Scalability: If you want to design a number of characters, especially a high-detailed 3D character design, you should grow your team too. That is no concerning matter for a character design studio because they already have enough artists. Even if they don’t have enough artists right away, they have connections and know artists who can hire right away, so they can produce any character design you are going to need. Even if you need animation, a character design studio will provide you with experienced animators.

There are some criteria for picking the best character design agency for your projects:

  1. Portfolio: A character design company’s expertise is showcased via its character design portfolio, and nothing tells better what they are capable of than its past works.
  2. Reviews: Read their reviews online and see what their past clients think of them. The most honest on-hand thing you can find in any character design company is its online reviews.
  3. Communication: First impressions matter – especially when it comes to communication. If they’re slow to respond or just plain rude from the get-go, imagine how it’ll be once they have your money! Trust your gut and work with people who make you feel good.
  4. Time and Budget Compatibility: After all, you might find the best character design studio in the world, but your time schedule and/or money budget do not meet their demands. Find a studio that meets all the previous characteristics as well as your budget and schedule.

Creating awesome character design doesn’t always require complex or extraordinary efforts. Considering a few basic points can easily transform your character design:

  1. Shape Language Technique: Understanding different shapes and their meaning can help to choose an interesting and recognizable shape that reads clearly from any angle. Simple yet thoughtful shape choices result in bold, communicative and memorable character designs.
  2. Color Definition in Art: The knowledge of color theory in character designing can dramatically impact a character’s look, feel, and meaning. The color goes beyond just pigment to have profound effects. Choosing the best color palette can make a character design visually appealing, set the mood, and improve clarity.
  3. Anatomy: Anatomical awareness, like proportions, poses & motions, and realism, allows for more intentional design choices. It brings greater purpose and visual legacy to character design.
  4. Art Style: A unique art style of a character is a powerful tool to become memorable and increase immersion and differentiation. Leveraging stylistic elements strategically helps craft characters who feel uniquely suited to their world, story, and audiences.
