A character is the writer’s instrument to communicate with the outer world.
The character rides the vehicle of the script to deliver the message of the author.
The process of visually representing the characters in the script is called character designing.
A ‘Model Sheet’ of the characters must be developed in tandem with the script in order to
proceed further irrespective of the medium of production (2d, 3D, live action or illustration).
So if it is "character" you are looking for, we shall never "loose" it !
