Characterization of Little Lion Boy

21 Jun

Giving a character a personality is important, not only the way it looks but the relationship the character has with a viewer. When coming up with an idea for a character I feel I have to be influenced by something or someone.

 As Mumford & Sons are a favourite of mine, I looked at them more closely and the lyrics in their songs. One song in particular which stood out for me was Little Lion Man (2009), the words in the song are so powerful.

 I took the title of the song and created a character who is a young boy who loves his lion costume and wants to become a lion.
