Full size here.Some quick notes about poses in response to a question from my ask box.I don’t think I’m consistently successful at drawing human poses that aren’t stiff or unnatural, but maybe there’s something here that will be helpful to someone anyway.

Great notes about poses.

Today I gave my students a quick presentation on some of the basic considerations for composition, which I am now sharing with you! I’ve given them separate talks about color and tonal value/contrast, which are also super important compositional concerns. (I’ll be sharing those presentations too once I properly format them)

I personally love learning about different compositional techniques. It’s fun to think about the ways that the brain views & sorts images, and how we can trick it into feeling a certain way or looking at certain aspects of an image first! It’s easy to fall into compositional ruts (which I am also guilty of) because a lot of art gets by with mediocre, though serviceable, compositions. If you can generally understand what’s happening in an image then it’s generally fine. However, it’s the truly great compositions, where everything in the whole image has been considered and ‘clicks’ together, that bump up an illustration to a visual slam dunk. NC Wyeth is one of my favorite artists for this reason: his compositions are rock solid, varied based on the image’s intent, and always enhance the mood or action he is depicting.

For extra reading, some online compositional resources that I’ve found helpful or interesting include:
Creative Illustration by Andrew Loomis (download it for FREE. Such a great book all-around.)
Gurney Journey (check out the “Composition” tag, but really everything he posts is great)
The Schweitzer guide to spotting tangents
Cinemosaic (a blog by Lou Romano with some truly WONDERFUL compositions captured from various films)
Where to Put the Cow by Anita Griffin

Happy composition-ing!

Check it out!  More composition notes.  Very useful and clear.

Because good reference is always nice to have close by.

Really loving the colours. Plus, I like the almost paper cut-out feel of it (enhanced by the out of focus background). Always lovely work.

Teaser for a Comicon Exclusive Rise Of The Guardians print
If all goes well, we should have a limited edition, exclusive “Rise Of The Guardians" print at the San Diego Comicon. 
This is just one little teaser image (art is much larger, with the whole cast) - art by Perry Maple, one of our graphic artist on the movie.
If you drop by the Bolt City production table (#2235, between Marvel and Sideshow Collectibles), and can answer a trick question or two, or show up in full cosplay of one of the characters, this special print can be yours!
