2 X marks the spot

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight | Kick-start Manga -

Most of the con­tact with the viewer lies in how an artist uses well­known forms and signs. The cir­cle, for ex­am­ple, is seen in na­ture around the world, such as the sun and eyes. But what about cul­tural signs? One of the most com­mon Western sym­bols is a cross or X. Sub­lim­i­nally re­mind­ing the view­ers of this is a great way to grab at­ten­tion from a dis­tance. Sim­i­larly, ships from the Star Wars films – the X-Wing and TIE Fighter – are based on letters of the al­pha­bet.
