(III) Celluloid Character Illustration

(III) Celluloid Character Illustration

This module will introduce the ideas of drawing Celluloid characters, including how to observe characters, how to express the main points and draw sketches quickly, how to portray various expressions and draw characters of different age groups.

At the same time, students will learn about the head-to-body proportions of different body structures in this section to draw the shapes and variations of different parts of the character. Once students are familiar with the basic figure structure and detailing, they will further learn about the dynamic presentation of the character and related coloring techniques, as well as how to express the variations of highlights and shadows and the three-dimensionality of the body. In addition, students will learn how to present different types of clothes and learn some coloring techniques. In the meantime, students will gain a solid grasp of the knowledge through various modeling and imitation exercises.

Finally, teachers will share how to collect relevant reference materials when drawing characters in celluloid style, so that students can work on character design and character drawing later.

(This course provides an educational experience for beginners who are interested in computer graphics from elementary to profound. Teachers will introduce the beginner's concepts of drawing. Through classroom exercises, students will be able to improve their drawing thinking skills. They will be inspired to explore freely and their drawing style will be developed gradually.

The course will first introduce the concept of computer graphics so that students can learn the similarities and differences between digital painting and traditional painting. Afterwards, students will get to know how to use the basic tools of computer graphics. After students are familiar with the use of tools, they will learn basic figure drawing techniques. During the exercises, they will learn the complete drawing process and become familiar with the ideas and the main points of drawing from the draft to the first coloring and then to the final drawing.

During the exercises, the instructor will also share websites for portfolios, material resources, and design inspirations, so that students can learn independently after class.)
