+$18. Focus on facial expression
+$19. Give your character goals
角色个性背后的驱动力是它想要实现的目标。这个缺少的“东西” - 无论是财富，女朋友还是解开谜团 - 都可以帮助创造出你的角色所经历的故事和冒险背后的戏剧性推力。角色设计中的不完整性或缺陷常常使其变得有趣。
+$20. Build up a back story
+$If you're planning for your character design to exist within comics and animations, then developing its back story is important. Where it comes from, how it came to exist and any life-changing events it has experienced are going to help back up the solidity of, and subsequent belief in, your character. Sometimes the telling of a character's back story can be more interesting than the character's present adventures.
+$"If you’re experiencing problems when attempting to nail the essence of a character, try thinking of them in a certain situation," Ørum advises. "Use the story to think about your character’s emotions before tackling the design, and add the details afterwards. Setting the scene is the best help when staring at a blank piece of paper, and it makes the process more fun, too!"
+$21. Remember it's not all about the face
Yukai Du+$is not what you'd call a typical character designer: none of her work features faces. Instead, her body part of choice is the hands. Having found she wasn't good at capturing specific emotions within a facial expression, she turned to a different body part: the hands. "Hands are very expressive. You can tell a lot of stories with hands, and do it in a very subtle way," she says. Hands became her way of telling stories.
+$22. Make your character design flexible
+$Having decent software and materials to work with is useful, but not essential, when it comes to bringing your character to life. A lot of amazing characters were successfully designed years ago when no one had personal computers andPhotoshop CC只是一个梦想。
+$If you character is really strong, you should be able to capture it with just a pen and paper. Or, asSune Ehlers+$puts it: "The character should still be able to work with a stick dipped in mud and drawn on asphalt."
+$23. Get feedback from others
+$24. Make It Honest
+$"A lot of my commercial project come out of my personal work. That's why I try to make my personal work so honest to what I like. I think it comes through to the viewer that I'm not just ticking boxes," says John Bond. The illustrator recently launched his debut picture book, NOT LOST, based on his Mini Rabbit character design.
+$25. Create the right environment
+$26. Fine-tune Your Figure
插画尼尔麦克法兰+$advises: "Think about the meaning of the word 'character'. You're supposed to breathe life into these things, make them appealing and give them the magic that will allow people to imagine what they're like to meet and how they might move."
+$27. Don't be afraid to make changes
+$Hilda has changed over the years, from book to book, but Pearson explains that no one has pulled him up on it. "I like to think it means the design is strong enough to withstand being pulled in all these different directions," he says.
