We wanted to search for the way to communicate smoothly among director, writer and character designer in process of digital character casting. First of all, we were concerned about what character factor tended to be expressed on character design when a character designer drew its sketch after analyzing the character. So we adopted HEXACO character model in order to sort out traits of a character, acquired related data from semi-quantitative method and found out how each respondent had completed the character design sketch through in-depth interview.
