Day 2!

Here's the shape from day 2 and another design from APW's Vince Peets.

Day 1 of the APW Character Design Challenge!

Day 1 of the APW Character Design Challenge inspired a bunch of crazy character designs. This character (designed by APW's Vince Peets) was taken from a number of designs that people posted on our APW facebook page. They are all based on the shape (1/14). You can see more of this as it developes on the APW facebook page.

14 Day Character Design Challenge Oct. 24 to Nov. 7!

Take APW's challenge and design a character a day for 14 days. Two weeks of a new design everyday. It should be fun - everyday we'll post a shape on the APW facebook page. Use the shape as a starting point/inspiration and design a character! Just one pose will do it - try not to spend more than 15 minutes on this - the idea is to explore different shapes while designing 14 one-a-day characters . It's pretty wide open.
Starting on Monday, October 24th and continuing until Monday November 7th there will be a basic shape posted on our facebook - one new shape at 9am each morning. Feel free to post your drawings on our facebook page, too! Have fun!
