You may remember David Revoy from his short 'Little Fairy'. He has now published a series of videotutorials on character design. In no less than 9 separate tutorials (most of them around 9 minutes long), David takes you through the entire process of drawing, modeling, texturing and rendering a little Dragon.
An interesting twist in this tutorial is that David uses the UV/Image editor to draw the reference image of his character instead of preparing it in Photoshop or the Gimp. This is the first time I've seen someone use the editor like that!
While the actual explanation is a bit minimal (David only includes a list of used shortcuts for each video) and I wouldn't recommend this tutorial to absolute beginners, I do think that this is an interesting watch for many Blender users.
