Who still remember Singa? For those growing up in the 80s/90s might remember that good old Singa. For those who might not have the chance to know Singa or forgotten, this is a new animation commissioned by the kind folks at SKM. The aim is to reintroduce Singa to a new generation of audience.
Welcome to Kindsville, a colourful town which never rains and never gets dark. Join Singa and his friends as they learn new lessons about kindness and graciousness from each other with each new day. Nothing makes them happier than to see how a compassionate act can brighten another’s day. Whether it is to greet others with a cheerful smile or to go the extra mile to help someone else, the Singas believe that no kind act is too small or insignificant.

What is your flavour character ? Have you ever wonder what makes a character appealing? In this article, I will share with you some of my thoughts about character design.
Getting to know your character
Before you start sketching, it is good to ask yourself a few questions e.g. Who is this character that you will be drawing, is he a good or bad character? How old is he? What kind of environment and background is he coming from? What kind of personality or emotional mood i.e. happy, sad, shy, smart, stupid etc. Just like developing a character for a script, the more you know about your character, the more details and ‘life’ you will be able to build into your character.
When I was designing Stoneboy (www.chipsandtoon.com/stoneboy), it took me a few days before I completed 3 pages of character’s bio. It started as my research on my character for the story development but I soon realized that the more I know about my character, the easier it is for me to visualize it on paper. Below you will find an image of our main character: Stoneboy.
