An Unusual Way To Create A Character

Artist David Habben has an unusual creative process behind his whimsical illustrations-he creates a basic outline/shape then fills the interior with detail.

He twists and contorts his characters to fit within the space created by the outline, forcing them to conform in a way which actually aids creativity, even though it seems like a hindrance.

David's works may be the shape of things to come in the world of illustration, and for the rest of us the idea makes for a pretty nifty form of drawing exercise.

Thank-you. All endeavors, whether or not we realize it, start with some sort of restrictions. Embracing them allow us to be creative with what we have rather than wasting energy fighting the limitations.
