source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 1, pp. 48-51
summary How do character traits influence viewer emotion and identity perception about images? Investigating past trends of iconic characters we will evaluate traits that inspire sustainable impressions of a figure. Examples of various formal techniques will demonstrate methods for creating character empathy, including stylistic strategies for influencing a Viewers emotion. Viewing a variety of characters we will observe engaging and immersive qualities, including posture exaggeration traits for personifying happiness, sorrow, anger, and fear. Examining characters spanning a wide range of emotional attributes, I will show how characters have a particular emotional gravity, personality, and identity that are formed over time. Through this discussion I hope to give artists and viewers a different perspective about their relationship to the past, present, and future of characters.
