If you read Eat Poo, you may have heard of this. This is a video of a lecture given by Chen Yi Chang, character designer at Disney. He gives lots of good information on the industry and on doing character design. I highly recommend the download even though it is quite large (about 300MB); but it is almost three hours long.
You'll need to download this program first. Once it's installed, open it up and give this address to download from: mms://mid.video.csupomona.edu/Misc/ChenYiChang-245.wmv.
