Peter de Sève is an American illustrator and character designer who has created many famous characters for popular animated films.

(The beloved Scrat character from Ice Age is one of de Sève’s most famous characters.)
Although the majority of Peter de Sève’s illustration work is based on his own original characters, sometimes he recreates other famous characters in his work, as can be seen below in the image of the two puppets, Kermit and Yoda. Each of de Sève’s illustrations beautifully displays the personalities and emotions of the characters in the scene; an aspect of character design that inspires animators and script writers in their own work with the character. Peter de Sève talent in character design lies in the fact that he doesn’t just create a form for a character; he also creates an entire personality for the figure in a single illustration.
