Developing A Character! Part 1 - Initial Steps
Let's start off the New Year with maybe something a little different than what you've done in the past with a few tips on which might help you out in the future. When I'm surfing around the net each day I come across all sorts of things that I think might be useful when coming up with new carvings. The real beauty of the net and computers is just how handy they are when you take advantage of just what they can do. So, with this project we'll use some of these features to develop a new figure. Now I said develop...not copy! We'll try and make sure that the end product will be ours....not theirs.
Here are the links to the sites I use in the video:
1. This is the video link to the Cartoon video clip: http://vimeo.com/81341794
2. This is the download site for MWSnap, the screen capture program: http://mwsnap.en.softonic.com/
After you use that MWSnap program a while I'm sure you'll agree it's one of the neatest free downloads available.
I've also put the drawing I did along with the photo of the character in the associated folder in the Gallery should you want to use it.
