We'll get started by examining each individual shape to see which character features could be associated with the different areas of the shape. Next we'll lay a foundation of quick, loose, pencil-like line work, flushing out some of the details of our character. During this phase, we will learn a variety of different ways to draw the features and forms that relate to a alien type characters. From there we will refine our line work with more confident inked lines. Finally we'll look at a quick method of applying color in the form of cell shading to our character concepts.

By the end of this series you will have a thorough understanding of the many processes behind bringing a layered Photoshop character to life within After Effects.
