Pupils use their pencil drawing skills to render characters for their animated film. These characters are drawn from multiple view points to enable them to turn and have a variety of movements on screen. Pupils study the work of illustrators like Oliver Jeffers to help give them inspiration. Enjoy some example of the pupils’ character designs.

A nicely realised animal character (these can be hard to achieve!) coupled with excellent graduated coloured pencil work.
Megan Campbell 001
This cat is clearly full of character!

A lovely example showing different character ‘expression heads’.
Bold, contrasting colours and a strong design.

A really excellent body drawing adding greatly to this character.
Hannah Finch Lion 001
Strong warm colours really suit this lovely drawing of a lion!

Subtle colour shading on the face of this character really makes it stand out- superb!
