What Are Character Design Sheets?

It’s a sheet that helps you create a standard for one or multiple characters by showing them in different poses/movements, with a variety of expressions, gestures or even clothing. They are also referred to as model sheets, character studies and character boards.

Designing Characters is such a fun and freeing process!

 

At the end of the day, you can proudly show off your OC (original characters) to your friends and followers. After, you can put them in different situations and write a comic book, or animate them.

The options are limitless 🙂

 

Today, I wanted to share some of my personal favorite character design sheets AND character development sheets of multiple characters by a couple of very talented artists!

I will tell you a little bit about each artist, link back to their portfolio sites so you can check out more of their work, and add a little backstory of the character wherever possible.

 

 

Also, feel free to pin these to your Pinterest Boards for future inspiration! 🙂

Let’s get to it.
