“A simple black-and-white silhouette is enough for us to understand what kind of character it is. We can understand whether he or she is a hero or a villain, strong or weak, adult or child. All these things can be conveyed with just a silhouette, even withoutcolour or details. Don’t underestimate the importance of basic shapes. Ignoring this rule is like starting to install doors/windows/roof on a building that doesn’t have a firm foundation — it just won't work.”
Olga Moiseeva is a freelance character designer for animation, advertising and illustrations.
