Re-Post: Chen Yi Chang on Character Design

From the Archives…one of my earliest posts, when my little blog was still in diapers:

This has been around for a while, but it’s still a great link. In October 2002 California State Polytechnic University Pomona filmed a presentation by Disney character design supervisor Chen Yi Chang (Batman, Mulan, Tarzan). For over two hours Chang gives a multimedia discusssion covering the basics of good character design and technique. Then he reviewed student’s work for another hour. There’s some really good stuff here, mostly a refresher on the basics but still very inspiring!

UPDATE: For those of you who would rather read (and see some good artwork), here’s an interview with Chin Yi Chang from the Character Design Blog. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see some samples of his work.
