Fram­ing tech­niques

De­pend­ing on the pur­pose of an illustration, some lim­i­ta­tions can come into play and one of them is fram­ing. My card art is viewed on smart­phones, so the char­ac­ters need to be large enough to dis­cern de­tails and this means some­times they won’t fit into the frame. There are a few rules of thumb on how to crop fig­ures: don’t cut where there are any joints, never cut through the hands (they should be ei­ther vis­i­ble or out of the pic­ture) and, for por­traits, avoid crop­ping the ears or chin.
