The project is a published web-base guideline, organised with simplified information that covers everything within the topic “Character Design”; by showing examples of well designed character(s), followed with the processes, steps of creation, further usage, and additional functions. The website is categorised in 4 directions: base information and introduction of topic, creation and design process (rules & reasons), products (2D & 3D), and copyrights (IP ownership); each section shares the same example to make the whole guideline clear and cohesive.
To introduce, Character design is a small category under the Intellectual Property Topic, and Intellectual Property(IP) is some projects or designs that are produced and published on the internet. With the growth of technology, these creations can also own copyrights. Character designs are believed to be one of the greatest parts of virtual projects, especially for games, stories and animates; relationships and experiences of characters push the story, therefore the designs and settings are very important. Besides the commercial value that IP provides, character design can also be a type of entertainment, everyone that are interested in designing characters can enjoy and experience, or even participate in this industry in the future.
