Design your ultimate 2D game characters with Inkscape – Learn how to design two-dimensional characters with Instant Poker
Simple and fast method and character drawings to create versatile vector characters with a free open source program!
What makes a good game?
A good game needs a great story. It needs nice overall graphics. Engaging gameplay.
And it also needs well-designed characters!
This course is exactly about that! When you are developing your own game, and you are not a designer, you will find a hero for your game challenging!
During the course, we learn
the theory of character design, which
makes a good character,
my 6 step character design method
to create a character sheet
to prepare our characters for animation
to animate our characters.
And we will do all this in Inkscape, this epic free software! It is a very versatile vector tool that makes designing characters much more easier and faster! Get in on inkscape.org!
Apart from the above, I will share character blueprints with you! These are showing how I design a character with Inkscape from scratch. We practice different skills with each character. We create a character sheet from one, and basic animation from the other.
Your task will be to practice and create a character sheet and basic animation for all the characters, or your very own game hero / enemy!
I will also share tips and tricks in the course. In these short lessons I usually want to help you work faster and create better designed figures.
Mind that this is only the first version of the course! I will add some new character blueprints – and listen to the need of my students – and I will keep the course updated. My goal is to have about 10 blueprints.
I do not want to talk about myself. If you want to know me better, read my instructor bio. But I can tell you one thing: I am here to teach. When you ask me, I will help and find a solution to your problem the best I can!
