Taking the time to draw a character sketch is an important step in creating a memorable cartoon character, but it’s not always easy to know where to start. The good news is that there are many useful tips and tricks available
to help you design a memorable and appealing character sketch. In this blog post, we’ll be exploring six of these tips and tricks so you can successfully design a cartoon character in Powerpoint.
Plan Before You Draw
Whether you’re brainstorming ideas or creating rough sketches, taking the time to plan will make all the difference when it comes to designing a memorable cartoon character. Think about the following questions and incorporate their answers into your character design.
Why is your character relevant to the message?
What are the character’s personality and attitude?
What are the character’s main traits?
What are the character’s strengths and weaknesses?
How do you want your audience to feel while viewing the cartoon?
Planning will help you get to the essence of your character and ensure that you’re designing a memorable cartoon character.
Use Simple Shapes
Shapes are a great way to help your audience quickly understand a character’s appearance. For example, circular shapes are often associated with children, while rectangular ones are often associated with adults. In addition, circles tend to be associated with fun and happiness, while rectangles tend to be associated with adulthood and responsibility.
Furthermore, you can use simple shapes to distinguish between characters of different ages. For example, a child’s character may have a large round head, while an adult character’s shape may be smaller and more detailed.
Keep Things Simple
You can often achieve more with less in terms of design. When designing a cartoon character, don’t try to include every single detail. Instead, try to keep it simple and stick to the basic shapes associated with each character’s gender and age. This way,
you can create more cartoons with one character design, while still distinguishing between characters. In fact, the simpler the design, the more memorable it will be.
Use Proximate Elements
Elements are the basic characteristics of your cartoon character. They’re usually made up of a shape and a color, and they can often be used to distinguish between characters. For example, a male portion of your character design may have a circular shape, while a female portion may have
a rectangular shape. You can keep the male and female elements simple by using a color associated with each gender addition, you can also use elements such as hair, clothing, shoes, glasses, and so on.
Once you’ve finished your character design, it’s time for the final touches. First of all, you have to make sure that your presentation is organized in a way that makes it easy for your audience to see the design.
Once your presentation is organized, it’s time to add your character design. This can be done by simply highlighting the area where the character is located.
Finally, you have to make sure that your character design stands out. This can be done by adding your character’s name, logo, and/or slogan on top of the design. In addition, you can also choose to color code your character. Color coding is one of the best ways to make sure your cartoon character stands out and remembers your business.
Ask for Feedback
Asking for feedback is one of the best ways to make sure your cartoon character stands out. First of all, you can choose to get several opinions on your character design, such as your colleagues, friends, and family members. You can also choose to choose a poll. This can be done by simply asking your audience to vote for their favorite character design.
In addition, you can choose to get feedback from the web. This can be done by creating a page on a website such as Facebook or Reddit. Once your page is created, you can choose to post your character design and ask for feedback.
Creating a cartoon character in Powerpoint can help your audience remember your business and your brand more easily. In order to create a memorable character, it’s important to plan before you draw, use simple shapes, keep things simple, use proximate elements, and final touches, and ask for feedback.
