Character Design from the ground up is written by video game designer later came illustrator Kevin Crossley. A very well written book about hos background and solid sharing of the author sharing his hobby since young. This is a book about how to came out with design ideas, concepts and projects driven process.
I love how the author presents his thoughts and tips on sharing his characters design process. This also includes he is giving ample reasons the ample reasons of why keeping traditional sketch books are essential on the growth as an artist.
I feel this book is more suitable for intermediate to advance artist.
