Find your way around DA#4: Composition+PerspectiveA good composition can turn an 'average' artwork into something memorable. It's more than just 'how to make things look nice'. A well thought-out composition can guide the eye of the viewer, telling a story in just one single image. Even artwork that's technically perfect can be boring if no real though was put into the composition.
It's not always the case, but composition often goes hand in hand with perspective. Many artists struggle with this (both beginners and more advanced), but a basic knowledge of perspective can really take your work to the next level. It's an essential tool for drawing credible backgrounds and landscapes.
The basics for these two skills seem easy, but more advanced composition and perspective can be real brain-breakers. I've collected tutorials here to help you get started. Read, learn, practice, and be amazed by your own work!
Tutorials and quick tips to get you started
Find your way around DA #5: Coloring and ShadingIn a previous journal we had a look at color theory (Find your way around DA #3: Color Theory). But once you've figured out what colors to use you realize you've barely started. You have to figure out where to place your shadows and light, and what is the best way to add the colors to your canvas?
In this journal I've collected tutorials and references that cover these subjects. This list is not complete! There are so many tutorials on DA, especially for coloring, it would be almost impossible for me to list them all. When an artist has multiple coloring tutorials I've usually picked only one or two, so be sure to check out their galleries! You will notice that there are almost as many different techniques as there are artists. There is no 'one right way'. Try a few, find something that works for you, and then make it your own ^^
- As usual I've tried to seperate starter and more advanced tutorials, but I must admit the divisin is some
