So starting out before making models or anything, first I thought I would go find some ideas and inspirations. I looked at how characters are designed for stop motion compared to normal 2D animation. Most of them seemed to be simplified so it would make it easier to sculpt.
I noticed shapes is mainly the key for designing characters, so I will be playing around with shapes to create characters
Also to keep the animation principles in mind, I looked at some exaggeration in characters and other people's work.
Lastly I have to come up with my character and different angles of it.
