I believe this play a very important role on the human's mind and is very important in order to create interesting and successful characters.
I was given a character ( villain) and had to identify the shapes used and then change them in order to make him look less villain/ friendlier.
We notice the shapes used are mainly triangles which refer to aggressiveness.
I changed these shapes to more round and softened the edges and the pointy curves to obtain this:
For this exercise below, we were asked to choose a character we like and simplify it if it looks very realistic or make look realistic if it's simple.
The Character I used below is between simple and realistic.
I drew him first then chose to simplify him.
This was a very useful lesson and will help me when designing my characters in the future.
