Tutorial: Building A Character - Part 2
  • Transcript


    Adding eyes and expression to your character.

    In part 1, we created our basic face. Now to make use of all that masking we did. Let's create an eye.

    Start with a squashed white circle, slightly smaller red, and another smaller white. Work with large shapes - you can reduce the whole thing later.

    Arrange them like this. Remember, turning off the guide lines tool gives you finer control

    Set the red opacity to 30 and the blur to 10. Set the top white circle to blur 20.

    Then we add the iris and pupil, like so. The colour can be anything you want. Here I've used Cyan at opacity 40

    Finally, so it doesn't look like a dead fish eye, we add some highlights

    Duplicate the eye and place them a suitable distance apart for the face you've created. Group them and save to your library.

    The eyes, with the addition of eyebrows and a mouth, will give a whole range of expressions

    As with everything, experiment and try your own things. The best way to learn is by doing.
