De­velop fo­cal points

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

The first thing peo­ple no­tice in a pic­ture are hu­man faces, so they be­come nat­u­ral fo­cal points and should, as such, be placed care­fully. There are sev­eral ways to ac­cen­tu­ate them or shift the in­ter­est to­wards other ar­eas of the im­age. One is ma­nip­u­lat­ing light, such as keep­ing most of the im­age rel­a­tively equally lit and have strong light hit the area we want to stand out. Vari­a­tion in brush strokes or colours can also be used, ren­der­ing the fo­cal point and keep­ing the rest of the im­age rougher and more de­sat­u­rated.
