Click here to download & Watch Full Video http://bit.ly/2h5QdFU Welcome to AMB Animation Academy Empowering Your Passion to draw dreams to life. This is a Short Preview of a 1 hour 45 minute Video tutorial on the art of facial Character design. The Video Will show You in a step by step drawing process, how to capture the essence and feel from a face and interpret it into your very own character design. The video reveals professional techniques used by the character designer to interpret faces from photographic reference into a cartoon character design. The designers approach is very different from the art of caricature and focuses on capturing the essence and feel from the source material as opposed to creating an exact cartoon likeness. The tutorial will demonstrate the significance of drawing in terms of definite shapes and refining them into simple and appealing combination that will result into a successful character design. The character art is specially geared to illustration styles based around 2D hand drawn Animation. The example used is similar to that of the well-established and celebrated Disney Princess. The tutorial demonstrates the evolution of the design process from initial rough sketches to working out a design then drawing a tie down to determine the fine line stage of clean up. Once the drawing is cleaned up it is then coloured via the process of digital painting.

Just discovered your channel yesterday. Very inspirational. Even in this edited down sample, it was very interesting to get a glimpse of your workflow turning your very attractive wife into a character. Is the full tut and others like this also included in your Real Animator training?

Hi tanks for the question and compliment for my work and my wife! This video was made a year prior to my Real Animator Training system. The Real Animator Training system covers far more construction details and references anatomical training and how to apply it to facial structure. Whilst I still think this video serves as a good stand alone tutorial giving overall tips and pointers - It is not part of the Real Animator Training Library as the library contains a number of videos on drawing cartoon faces that are superior to this one! Appreciate the interest!

+Rose water of rain and pain Thank you for such kind comments :) I am happy you enjoy my videos. I am enjoying teaching on youtube more than working on TV shows - a lot of my lessons are free and I sell some to give me time off work So I can make more videos. Thanks :)

Very good tutorial bud, I'll follow your lead! What program/software do you use?
AMB Animation Academy (3 years ago)
+Kevin Jakpot Hi Kevin as stressed in the video Software is least important. I'm using Photoshop for this particular video. It is only relevant for colouring but the essential design and drawing foundations can be echoed on paper or any other software. Cheers.

+sahil khan Hi Sahil it can be tricky dealing with advanced shapes - Don't Forget that the Disney style is the highest possible standard in traditional hand drawn animation. Their shapes are simplified but in a way to maximise movement through line manipulation. Other drawing styles might appear more detailed as stand alone illustrations but the animation is less fluid and lively - more rigid. My tutorials demonstrate the process at a high level so people at all stages of development can learn something. You can practice with your own simpler design using the methods I demonstrate or if you really want to get ahead I recommend you download the inbetween test for that tutorial. By doing so you can study the shapes I made and have a go at inbetweening my keys and breakdowns. This will train you to be able to move such shapes. Also by tracing and studying the keys regularly you should get a grip on it a lot faster than tial and error - the link is here http://ambanimationacademy.blogspot.co.uk/p/amb-animation-academy-presents-this.html

I have been looking for something like this. I can't draw but I do 3d modeling and I've been trying to figure out how disney turns people into disney characters. There face structures are all the same basically, big eye, smaller mouth but somehow they get the disney character to look like that person like Disney princess Moana

+3D Isgreat Hi thanks for the comment. I'm glad I was able to help you in your journey. I would say that most facial structures are the same as the human skull variations are slight and subtle with ethnicity being an exception. Naturally when something is cartooned in the eye size will be exaggerated etc.. Things to consider are eye width and distances in facial proportion as with real life this makes the differences as well as cheek and brow definition and jaw line etc... The Disney drawing style is based on curved lines against straight lines mapped out in a certain way. This creates that familiar look as with a anime styles and other styles all sharing a certain familiarity. Ultimately all cartooning is based upon upon life. Best of luck with your designing :)

+KTM B Pleasure - So glad you found it useful. You definitely sound like you are on the right track basing your design on a source you know very well both internally and externally - best of luck to you with that :)

+AMB Animation Academy I have a character I'm working on and I would like to draw my siblings as some of the animated characters. So this was a great help. I have concept work everywhere for the characters.
AMB Animation Academy (3 years ago)
+KTM B indeed it is. I recall Mark Henn Based Jasmine on his sister. Personal family relations are always a great source of inspiration as one knows them intimately.
KTM B (3 years ago)
+AMB Animation Academy See I just remember watching one of his videos and he asked to draw Ariel and up until that the he drew the Disney villains and they weren't sure if he could draw a pretty girl. "So I called my wife in. And she had the pretty turned up nose that I liked..." I remember it because I thought that was sweet.
