The characters within a game are the actors and are the main representation of the overall look, mood, and style of the game. Students were introduced to this valuable component of game development, where they gained an understanding of a character’s significance in a game. They were instructed to create characters that effectively represented their game while also establishing a style and personality to their design. While designing their characters, students were implementing their art fundamentals. A basic understanding of gesture, conveying emotion, and human proportion was also introduced.
