THE SO FREE ART PODCAST
A look at an ickle article entitled ‘Storytelling and Atmosphere with Raquel Villanueva‘, from issue 16 of the Character Design Quarterly magazine, by 3dtotal publishing.
This was a brilliant article to study, I came away from it with a greater appreciation of the Power of Colour in Telling a Story.
Some of the topics include:
- How Everything has Story,
- The Power of Exploration,
- Ways to Keep it Simple,
- Pushing Yourself without Taking Too Many Risks,
- How the Initial Idea is Key,
- The Connection between Artist, Character, and Viewer,
- Exploring Designs, Colours, Inspiration,
- Keeping the Feelings Flowing,
- Being Mindful of the Story You Want To Tell,
- Shape Language,
- Using Reference,
- and we look at Raquel Villanueva’s cute lil nose.
