WOW-HOW Studio’s artists perform the design of your characters in concepting stages:
Research. This phase involves collection of as much information about the future character as possible.
Preparation. This stage includes sorting out data obtained during research into a style sheet, compilation of biography tables for each image, and detailing the style sheet by adding clothing, hairstyle, makeup, etc.
Design. This is the final stage at which the actual drawing starts. Here, we take care of maintaining a strong visual style for all characters, making sure there is enough contrast between different game characters, adding some asymmetry to characters, preserving proportion, and adding colors to the ready sketches.
With professionalism and over a decade of expertise at WOW-HOW Studio, you can rest assured that your characters will be lively and realistic, unique and memorable, and causing a quick emotional response from your gamers. Be it a 3D or 2D game character design, we invest maximum effort and dedication to initial research, development of characters’ style and features, and the ultimate development of powerful, catchy animation.
