In the world of animation and virtual avatars, creating realistic and stylised characters is an essential skill. I am Antony Evans, the co-founder of Digital Puppets, an animation studio in the UK specialising in character design, animation, and virtual avatars. I have worked as character designer for many years for studios such as Disney, Warner Bros, and the BBC.

Today we will take you through the process of creating 'Lil Lewis Capaldi' for TikTok. First, we’ll demonstrate how to build the character using Character Creator 4, and then, we’ll delve into the animation workflow we employed in iClone 8.
