Vary­ing your tex­ture den­si­ties

This term refers to the artis­tic choice of where to place char­ac­ters and ob­jects, and where to leave some empty space in an im­age. Not only can it cre­ate a strong com­po­si­tion, it can also let the viewer’s eyes rest on the de­tails that you’ve painted on cer­tain ar­eas. To dou­ble-check my im­age’s tex­ture den­sity, I of­ten use a Thresh­old adjustment layer that turns my paint­ing black and white. The noisy area should be the part where I want to cre­ate ac­tion. The part where the large black shapes are should be where the view­ers can rest their eyes.
