Oh wow! Thank you so much! I actually was wondering what program you use and if you had any tips for an aspiring artist. I really want to get into character design but only have a few mediums to use at this point to experiment with.

I'm using Photoshop, CS6 to be precise, though I don't find it matters much past CS3. Photoshop is basically the industry standard, so it's good to know how to use it. If you have access to it, I would recommend using it :) 
I think the great thing about character design is that you can do it in basically any medium. A lot of the successful character designers use pencil, marker or watercolour. 

And I recommend doing studies of work that you like. It's a good way to get comfortable with a medium, because it allows you to focus more on the medium and you don't have to invent what you're going to draw as you are referencing from an already existing image. I did a lot of studies (Dice Tsutsumi, Anders Zorn and John Singer Sargent are my favourites to study) and I got so much out of them. You'll get a much better understanding of what's going on in those images as well. And sometimes, coming up with a complete drawing yourself can be quite overwhelming.
