Having pre-conceived characters and personalities to work with helps a character designer to start developing. So for this course the characters are based on a young teenage Hero who works back stage at a theatre who then finds out that the Villain, “a crazy magician” has enslaved many bunny rabbits to pull out of a hat in every magic show he performs. Paris takes all the imaginative information of each character and demonstrates the stages to design the Hero and the Villain.
