I recently gave an assignment to my Illustration 1 and 2 students at Meramec Community College which was to create a fictional character. I will be posting the students character illustrations for several days.
Assignment : Present your character

• Write a biography of your character: Name, describe their physical appearance, describe their personality-happy, serious, helpful, etc; what do they do, any special powers, where do they live, etc.

What is the history of this character? What makes your character unique? What other characters inhabit your character’s world? How do you want your audience to feel about your character?

• Create full color illustrations of your character: This includes a view of your character from all angles,
front,back,behind, left,right. Illustrate your character in the environment where they live. Create a chart of Pantone colors that would be used to market your Character.

• Create mock up designs of your character on objects like T-shirts, mugs, posters, action figures.

This presentation of your character would be to sell it for licensing, to a company or corporation.
