I really enjoy creating characters. Making the creature has personality is an interesting process, is very satisfying to see how he “grows”.
In the attached image you can see three steps of the process (they are monsters from de video game Monsters Band). I often wonder how different is the creature from start to finish! Although the personality of the monster is always the same, the “styling” is changing with the creative process.
Besides the pleasure of drawing,  the challenge and fun for an illustrator is turn an idea into an image.

    it is truly an interesting thing when you create a character, you just make up something from your head and by slowly tweaking, altering and changing aspects about them, they suddenly have a life and even a mind of their own. even up until now, I am still astonished by how such simple minded characters can grow and change into complex ones. -w-
