Character Design Quarterly (CDQ) is a lively, creative magazine bringing inspiration, expert insights, and leading techniques from professional illustrators, artists, and character art enthusiasts worldwide.

Each issue provides detailed tutorials on creating diverse characters, enabling you to explore the processes and decision making that go into creating amazing characters. Learn new ways to develop your own ideas, and discover from the artists what it is like to work for prolific animation studios such as Disney, Warner Bros., and DreamWorks.

The cover for issue 27 has been created by industry veteran Dave Guertin, who helped to define the characters for Playstation's Ratchet and Clank video game, and co-founded CreatureBox. We interview him about his incredible career and he provides a tutorial that aspiring and established artists will love. We also have a tutorial from Thomas Campi, an award-winning comic artist and illustrator based in Sydney, and we interview prolific artist and children's book illustrator Lydia Nichols.
