Mini Goss: How to develop a character, for a book or a toy.

Session Info:

These sessions draw on Mini’s experience creating Barry and Stella for her book Too Cold For a Tutu. What’s your character’s favorite colour, what food do they like? These questions may not seem relevant to your final character but they help to build a fuller personality and more interesting character. We look at faces, how slight variations in features can turn a them from scary to sweet.
