10 DIREC TIONS OF FORCE

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight | Composition Skills -

This is how the viewer’s eye moves around the com­po­si­tion. All of the com­po­si­tional el­e­ments men­tioned in this ar­ti­cle play a part in mak­ing up im­plied force di­rec­tions. These can be bro­ken down into straight and curved. Of course, a com­po­si­tion isn’t made up of just one or the other, but of­ten one may dom­i­nate in the com­po­si­tion. Straight lines can be very di­rect, ex­plo­sive and dy­namic. Curved can be lyri­cal, lay­ered and calm. Use them both as well as all the vari­a­tions that can be achieved by com­bin­ing them.
