The goal of Mythophoric Character Design is to inform the way in which we visualize characters. The ideas contained within it are meant to contribute to, rather than codify, the process.
Mythophoric Character Design was created as a means for exploring the visual design of characters through semiotics, myth, and metaphor. The approach starts by using the theory of "The Four Forms," and explores the potential for making every element of visual design in a narrative a vehicle for communicating content.
The method was developed by Shanth S. Enjeti and is the result of his passion for mythology, psychology, and anthropology as well as popular culture.
