STORYTELLING AND ATMOSPHERE WITH RAQUEL VILLANUEVA - a Character Design Quarterly Art-ickle : Episode 171 of the So Free Art Podcast, with Transgender Artist Sophie Lawson

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.

Hope you love this one.
