Char­ac­ter pose

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

A char­ac­ter’s pose is key to bring the viewer into the paint­ing. I fall back on the story of this im­age to help dic­tate my de­sign de­ci­sions. Since the char­ac­ter is a hero about to ride off into the sunset, I turn his head to face the viewer just enough so he still re­mains mys­te­ri­ous. I also choose a pose that com­mu­ni­cates a re­served at­ti­tude, which gives him an air of cool.
