More about this course

This class is about how to create compositions. First, I will give you a step by step of how to start a composition, like the rule of the third for both the position for the objects and for the value scale, the overlap and the mess. Then, I will try to give more generic tips of how to construct them, like the basic foreground, midground and background division, and the flip horizontaly technique. So, ready to begin?

The course project

This class project consists in trying to put the tips that I gave you though the videos to the test and create a composition of your own. It can be simple, like the velociraptors, or can be more complex and thought out, like the viking, if you are feeling confident. It doesn't matter, what matters is that I'm able to provide you with some feedback. So, let's get to work?
