Composition Principles

When making concept art, I should consider Composition Principles – Basic Shapes, Contrast, Rhythm, Depth, Scale, Dynamics, Flow and the Rule of Thirds. Using these will make sure the piece captures enough information to get my concept across to the viewer.

In a situation such as making my character for my final project, The principles I should be considering in particular are Scale and Dynamics. The scale will make sure my character is portrayed at the right size in the piece, or exaggerating it if intended. This could help emphasize the character in the piece. Making the concept art appear from a different angle could also help give another view, such as the following piece of concept art which makes it seem as though the viewer is being hunted.

Kha'ZixI should still consider the other principles, using them to certain effects wherever possible.


I ended up not using these as I didn’t do much photoshop work at all, due to not using my time as efficiently as I should have.
