Modular Character Creator

The week of 8th–12th November 2021, I participated in #EndlessOrangeWeek, a program where the entire Endless team engages in projects designed to grow our collective learning related to our skills, work and mission.
This illustration project is a part of my team mate's Daniel Garcia Moreno project Hack Content Creators Platform.

Hack, a featured app included with Endless OS, helps kids learn to code and even hack their own device, building confidence, curiosity, and a sense of digital agency. Hack lets kids explore basic coding concepts and computational thinking as they journey down learning pathways including Art, Games, Makers, the Operating System, and Web.  

The pathways are composed by "Quests", interactive learning experiences, where the learner is guided by one Hack characters. Daniel's project provides a simple Quest editor to allow any Hack user to create and share their our Quests. My role on this was to design a simple character creator so the user can add their own guides to their Quests.

The Character System
If the user is unsure where to start, we also have a "random" button, which provides them with a cool starting point.
Animation
Finally, super simple 2-4 frame animation experiments so the characters come to guide the future Hackers of the Quest.
