Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.

James Turner has been working as a freelance illustrator and art director for years and years, since even before there was Twitter.|
Over the course of his career, including an earlier life in multimedia, he has worked for a wide array of clients, including The Wall Street Journal, Elle, WIRED Magazine, IBM, BASF, The Milken Institute Review, ING, TD Bank, In Character, Reader's Digest, The Chicago Tribune, The Globe and Mail, Popular Science, Red Herring Magazine, MacWorld, and dozens of other exceptional and remarkable publications he can't remember.
He also writes and illustrates graphic novels, such as Rex Libris, Nil: A Land Beyond Belief, Warlord of Io, and Hell Lost.
Humble and modest to a fault, James rarely waves about the awards he has won in front of guests to his home. He spends his time drinking coffee, loitering in art galleries and other public buildings, and writing wild and outlandish bios.
