Inclusive character design 2nd try

In my last blog entry, I experimented with inclusive character design in the field of: having one common theme (doing yoga) and then drawing different people in this situation. This time I focused on ethnicity and gender (Japanese (young) man) and tried to really understand:

  • Features
  • Clothing
  • Characteristics

I realized that it’s hard for me to stick to drawing people how they really look like and not to “Europeanize” them aka giving them features which are typical for Europeans like bigger lips or eyes etc.

I think it needs a lot of practice to really understand ethnicities and to draw them correctly without making them too European or too stereotypical.
