A Character Designer draws images of characters from all angles, from head to toe. The final designs he or she creates are used to create 3-D models so that when characters appear on television or film the look remains consistent. Today’s character designers do a lot of their work on the computer and must be both creatively and technically skilled.
Drafting spreadsheets and counting numbers never seemed to be in the cards for me. I thrive on creating new and undiscovered worlds and that's why I'm an artist.

Character Designer and Painter
I'm the character designer working on Transformers: Prime and I get to draw robots at work. One of the things that I love about designing Transformers is that it takes me back to when I was kid and used to draw Optimus Prime and the rest of the Autobots. Who knew I would do it again as an adult!
