Four blog posts giving some really good points of view from the creator of Ren & Stimpy, John K.
Its purely his opinion, and he has a solid vision of what a character designer (and a character design) is, or should be.
Through out the four posts, i picked up on character designers which I'll have a look at (quite a lot I've already looked at or heard of...but I'm going to look more closely at)
Also going to get a book out from the library (one of my favorite books....don't know why i haven't bought it yet) called 'cartoon modern' by Amid Amidi.
Here's the character design posts from John Kricfalusi...
