The website briefly details how Pixar animators come up with character designs. Although they are creating characters for animation I feel that the things discussed here are applicable to any type of character design. The page has a number of images and videos showing the process of developing iconic character and also has a number of useful tips on designing characters such as audience, defining characteristics and expressions, exaggerating features and fine tuning then, as well as taking into consideration the environment within which the character will be situated.
