P350 - Create a Character in Photoshop

Session Speakers
Session Description

Learn the techniques to create a character just like those in animated films. Former Disney animator/director Aaron Blaise will teach you how to create a compelling animal character on your own. During this hands-on preconference lab, Aaron will take you through his step-by-step process for creating unique creature designs in Photoshop. He’ll demonstrate concepts and techniques, and you’ll apply them to your own project, leaving with a creature you can be proud of. Participants should have a strong background in Photoshop and be ready for a fun learning day. 

Steps for this artistic journey include: 

  • Working with a strong thumbnail sketch—Aaron will have one for you to start with 
  • Roughing in the design 
  • Refining the initial drawing 
  • Adding color, shadows and highlights 
  • Enhancing with photographic textures and how to create or find textures 
  • Adding final details such as reflected light, deeper shadows,brighter highlights, and experimenting with focus
