6. All Other Research: Introduction

This section carries research from my dissertation regarding character design, research for my studio project aimed at animation, and topics that merge between these. A lot of the dissertation research carries sociological value, and looks at how children perceive television and media information. I looked into a few artists who are going against the media’s imposed beauty ideal, and how different people might perceive information differently based on their heuristic knowledge. Some research relates mainly to the technical aspect of animation.
