Abstract [en]

This study investigates possible connections between shapes, colour, lines, contrast and perceived traits of game characters from their appearance. The study is based on nine pictures of game characters where the characters were interpreted using formal analysis based on theories of shapes, lines and colour components such as hue, value and saturation. A survey was also conducted with 73 respondents who specified each character’s traits with three words. The study shows that there is a larger connection between shapes and characteristics than colour, where the descriptions of the characters were more scattered. Lines, contrast and warm and cool colours generally do not have any noticeable effect on the result.

Abstract [sv]

I denna studie undersöks eventuella samband mellan former, färg, linjer, kontrast och egenskaper som uppfattas kring spelkaraktärer utifrån sitt utseende. Studien utgår ifrån nio bilder av spelkaraktärer där karaktärerna tolkats i en formell analys utifrån teorier om form, linjer och färgens beståndsdelar så som nyans, ljusstyrka och mättnad. En undersökning utfördes även på 73 respondenter som fick specificera varje karaktärs egenskaper med tre ord. Studien visar att det finns ett större samband mellan former och karaktärsdrag, än färger där beskrivningen av karaktärerna var mer splittrad. Linjer, kontrast och varma och kalla färger har i allmänhet inte haft någon större inverkan på resultatet.
