5 TAKE THE GROUP­ING OR MASSING AP­PROACH

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

The group­ing or massing of ob­jects, colours and val­ues in a com­po­si­tion cre­ate new shapes. The world we live in is full of massing and group­ing: cars on a road, peo­ple in a small group talk­ing, dogs play­ing in a park, trees on a hill, for ex­am­ple. Group­ing goes hand in hand with value, shape, scale, bal­ance… all of it. Plac­ing mul­ti­ple ob­jects to­gether can cre­ate an ob­ject that’s sig­nif­i­cantly larger than a sum of its parts.
