Guid­ing the viewer

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

I make com­po­si­tional choices to guide the viewer to the war­rior first. I push the val­ues on the dragon’s head into a darker, less-de­tailed range, mak­ing it a sim­pler shape. The darker shape of the wing be­hind the dragon’s head helps keep it from be­com­ing too im­por­tant. One of the light­est points in the im­age is di­rectly be­hind the rider, which helps sil­hou­ette him. He’s in a prime com­po­si­tional spot at the top of the pic­ture.
