Free Horror Character Design Sheet

I love creating monsters and all sorts of creepy characters. I love to draw them. I love to sculpt them. One of my long term personal AND professional goals is learning video game design. I've been working hard behind the scenes to get there gradually, and am currently in the process of learning the Unity Game Engine and coding in C#.

I look forward to one day making (and hopefully finishing) my own Indie Horror Game! Part of this is process is developing concept art for characters and creatures...which unsurprisingly, I REALLY enjoy.

To assist my process, I whipped up a Horror Character Design Sheet to refer to while working. I figured there's got to be other concept artists out there that could also put it to good use. So, I have made it available as a FREE DOWNLOAD! Here you can jot down any initial ideas you might have, where your creature/character lives, how that might effect their appreance and any real life references to draw inspiration from.

I've made both a JPG and PDF file available for download below. You can either print out and complete traditionally, or open up it up in your chosen drawing software. If you're an Aussie Horror Artist, don't forget to also join our Facebook group to connect up - we'd love to see your work!

My name is Rachel Weaver. An artist inspired by sugar and spice… and things not so nice. Experimenting with polymer clay and mixed media to create the weird ideas that fill my head late at night.
