Quick Tip #3 – The Creative Negative


Creatively, negative space is any space or shape that’s next to, but not, the thing you are drawing.  Like yin and yang they have to exist together.  One of my favourite examples is the word ‘skyline’.  It exactly describes the negative shape when we look at a city scape.  Instead of drawing the ‘building line’ focus on the sky and draw the skyline.  That will make your life much easier 🙂


Oh and while I was playing with Gimp (a free version of photoshop) I did this cool thing 🙂
