Do you enjoy doodling little fuzzy creatures? Are you serious about drawing characters? Whether you’re a student enrolled in a program at MMI, or someone who is just interested in the subject of character design, you might enjoy the weekly adventure we’re embarking on this summer at Madison Media Institute. Join us for what promises to be a fun and informative workshop entitled, Intro to Character Design.
My name is Jeff Butler. I’m an instructor in the Game Art and Animation Program at MMI and I’ll be teaching the Intro to Character Design workshop. I’ve been a professional illustrator for over 30 years. During that time, I’ve illustrated book covers, comic books and many toy and game projects. I spent 5 years as an illustrator in the world famous art department of TSR, Inc. (the original makers of Dungeons&Dragons.) I also worked for 13 years as a video game character and concept artist at Raven Software. Over my career, I’ve been fortunate to do a lot of character art and design. I hope you’ll join me for our summer character workshop! Let me take a moment to tell you more about the class.
