As with many things, the best way to learn is to do! I will therefore take you through the entire process of designing a character for an animated project, from the initial research stage to iterations to the final model sheets.
By the end, you will have created a memorable character that is unique, exuding personality, and ready to be animated. You will have gained a valuable insight into the weird and wonderful world of professional character design!
In 2019, I graduated from the University of Technology, Sydney with a First Class Honours degree in Design in Animation. Last year, I was employed in a contract role as a full time character designer and character layout artist with Kapow Pictures on an upcoming original 2D animated series.

Perfect! We feel very lucky to have found Kim for our 11 year old. At every lesson I hear laughter and excitement from my son who often disengages at school due to special learning needs. Kim is able to work well with him and he looks forward to their classes.
Kim has an impressive portfolio and we definitely recommend her.
Kim is always very bubbly and enthusiastic, and takes care to make sure her students are following and understand the content and skills she teaches. Couldn’t recommend her more!
Kim is an extremely talented and gifted artist. She's kind, gentle and has a natural charm that makes everyone around her feel calm and comfortable. As a teacher, she would be a fantastic listener, with an infectious, bubbly, positive attitude. As an artist, Kim is a brilliant character designer, with a unique style and an unlimited imagination. She would be a wonderful tutor for those wanting to learn or expand their skills in design/art/animation. 100000/10 would recommend.
Kim has blown me away, I don’t usually write recommendations but I’m so impressed. She was able to communicate at my level and bring me up to the next. Her years of experience definitely shows and you won’t be disappointed.
