Composition 101

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! This thread is a response to @ketil and anyone interested in understanding and learning more about composition. 


I taught a Composition 101 class at ReaperCon last year. That class will not be offered again this year and I don't know how likely it is to be taught again. SO, in the hopes that it will be useful to someone I've included the .pdf of the lengthy class handouts as well as links to some useful videos explaining some of these concepts. I'm happy to answer any questions, discuss observations, or offer any guidance I can on improving this area of your work. It is one of the things I've devoted a lot of time and energy into mastering and I love sharing and growing our little community!

Ctrl Paint 

This guy has a whole series of videos on composition that I absolutely love. He is a digital painter/illustrator but these concepts apply to any medium and his tutorial videos are an invaluable resource!

Thank you for posting this.  I'm actually very excited to watch the videos on Crtl Paint.

 

Funny side note though, I started watching his 'Welcome to Color' video, and the first thing I noticed was the books in the background are organized by color.  Struck my funny bone.
