De­tail place­ment

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

Peo­ple or­gan­ise vis­ual el­e­ments in cat­e­gories and group them into larger shapes, based on their prox­im­ity to each other. The Gestalt the­ory of vis­ual per­cep­tion has de­rived a se­ries of rules from this premise. An open area or a barely sug­gested ob­ject will be “au­to­com­pleted” by the viewer, as long as its shape is recog­nised as a whole. This is why it’s not nec­es­sary to pol­ish ev­ery de­tail or worry about per­fect edges – just en­sure that the main shape is read­able from a dis­tance.
