How to turn Shapes into Characters

Video essay on character design​

This video is about character design in the broader sense, but focusing on aspects which might not be as obvious as the visual appearance. That’s why I’m concentrating on simple geometrical shapes, no shiny graphics here! This video was inspired by the video game “Thomas Was Alone” and is based on research of my bachelor’s theses.

Compact Version

This compact version acutally existed before the long video essay. It was part of my bachelor’s thesis and offered a short overview of the effects of character design I would be researching.

I translated it into english for my Youtube channel “Thoughts on Stories” and added the branding of the channel.
