Hire a Character Designer

A character designer is an artist who translates a person or personality to an original character using sophisticated software and drawing. Character animators develop characters based on technical and project art specifications. They can transform the developed character into animations.

Character designers are usually the first artists in production, to begin with the visualization based on your description.

Duties & Responsibilities of a Character Designer

Consider the following key responsibilities when choosing freelance character modeling experts on Guru:

  • Understanding of key requirements and design specifications
  • Ability to create high-resolution 3D models based on the description
  • Making contributions to the development of character content and art production
  • Maintaining documentation for the techniques involved in the character production
  • Adding animation effects such as personalities, emotions, attitudes, behaviors and moods to the character

What Makes an Excellent Character Designer?

Good character animators immerse themselves into the story. They conduct thorough research on different aspects of the character development including anatomy, style, costume, theatrical references and history.

Drawing is also an important part in the job of an anime character designer. They can create multiple versions of the same character based on the description received from the client. This allows you to evaluate the different features that work best on the character. Experienced character modeling experts display personality through the characters’ facial expressions and posture. It takes a real artist to instill life and personality in their work.

A character designer can also create model sheets after the character has been finalized. They can also be required to develop orthographic model sheets to display the character from all angles. These sheets are used for different purposes including computer-generated animation or conventional animation. The job of an online freelance character designer involves creative thought, excellent drafting and an eye for detail.
