Designing a character can often be so much more than simply pulling off a great drawing, it can be about telling a rich and deep back story to help truly bring a character to life. A character’s history can come from the simple moments we observe around us in our own worlds every day. Finding inspiration in the ordinary things around us offers a unique perspective that breathes life into our designs.
At its core, CreatureBox is for anyone who enjoys bizarre monster design, comics of spacemen, and illustrations of everything in between. For the past several years, we’ve spent most of our time digging deep into what makes characters tick while trying to tell a few stories along the way. We’ve had influential childhoods filled with cartoons, robots, aliens, and creatures of all shapes and sizes.
Yet through it all we’ve found collaboration to be the most critical ingredient. Together this has allowed us to expand our sensibilities while challenging each other to become better designers. Most importantly, we’ve found tackling creative battles as a team is good fun and always provides a fresh perspective. Through the website, our visitors are invited along for the ride as we dive into the deep end.
