POSTPONED - Cooking up Character Art - Level Up

Announcement March 17 2020:

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the NZ Games Festival have made the decision to postpone the Festival including Level Up workshops until next year, April 19-25th, 2021.

Every game world comes alive once you add characters to fill them. So as a budding character artist, your job is to visually create concepts for the inhabitants and worlds of your game! This session will show you how to develop your own characters for a game through the power of a drawing tablet and the freely available digital illustration program GIMP.

By the end of the workshop, everyone will have their very own character design and the know-how to keep on creating characters on their own at home.

Wednesday 22 April 1pm – 4pm – Ages 11-17 yrs
Thursday 23 April 1pm – 4pm – Ages 8-12 yrs – SOLD OUT

 

Facilitator: Samuel Fraser

I’m Samuel Fraser, a passionate Melbourne-based freelance artist who has been working as a facilitator for three years running art-based workshops in schools and youth centres. Most days you can find me scribbling on my tablet drawing new characters for Tabletop games and concept art for video games. I enjoy sharpening my skills as an illustrator and pushing myself to be a better artist every day. I love collaborating with other artists, learning from each other and fostering a supportive and respectful community for the next emerging artists.
