Com­po­si­tion rules

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

The Rule of Thirds is a popular com­po­si­tion tool, be­cause it’s both sim­ple and ef­fec­tive. Di­vide your im­age into thirds ver­ti­cally and hor­i­zon­tally: the fo­cus point of your images should ap­pear on the points where the lines cross. The Golden Ra­tio, mean­while, has its ba­sis in math­e­mat­ics. It’s been used in di­verse dis­ci­plines such as ar­chi­tec­ture and oil paint­ings, but for the com­po­si­tion pur­pose, all you need to do is ap­ply the shape of the Golden Ra­tio over your art and see if your fo­cal points follow the ra­tio’s dis­tinc­tive shape.
