I'm going to show you how I make up characters. I usually start with drawing some shapes. Circles, always good, triangles are good. It's good to have some feeling in the shapes, some emotion. That's an angry shape. I'm going to turn the paper around to surprise myself. Oh, it's a bird. There. I think that's a rabbit going very fast. And this one, I think this one looks like somebody walking very, very carefully. That should have some hair. Good. And trousers. Fine. Done. I'm going to cut them out roughly.
So now I've got all of these characters and I think it would be good to see how they would work together. What would happen if two of these meet? So I like this one and I want to add another one to see how they get on. So I really like these two characters together. I enjoy the idea of him being sneaky, how they're going somewhere together, that's good, they're a good team. Now I've got two characters. I've got enough to make a story now.
