build a strong com­po­si­tion

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

I be­lieve com­po­si­tion is the most im­por­tant as­pect of a keyshot. De­sign your im­age so that it leads the eye to the im­por­tant parts. Want peo­ple to look at the face? Put the most con­trast there. Have lines con­verge to­ward it. Pay at­ten­tion to the rule of thirds: di­vide your im­age into thirds and put el­e­ments of in­ter­est where lines in­ter­sect. You can use the golden spiral to great ef­fect; try ex­per­i­ment­ing with it at var­i­ous an­gles. And keep in mind that a char­ac­ter’s line of sight will send the viewer’s eye in that di­rec­tion – you can use that to your ad­van­tage.
