From Sandro Cleuzo:
This book is a result of the Master of Character Design [workshop] that I held in 2014 at the NEMO Academy in Florence... In these pages, I want to take you behind the scenes of this wonderful job, by telling you about my approach in creating great-looking characters. In this book you'll find tips and secrets that I'd like to share with all who wish to learn this beautiful art. Create and give life to new characters, the future protagonists of new adventures!
