7 Think about neg­a­tive space

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight Mech Designs -

Bal­ance out ar­eas of de­tail with empty space. I love adding the mi­cro de­tails to a piece; they make the de­sign pop! But of­ten a de­sign with too many de­tails on show makes it feel too noisy for my taste. I like to bal­ance out a de­sign with ar­eas of less de­tail. The eye needs a place to rest. This could be a smooth panel sur­face or a clean, over­lap­ping fab­ric. Sci-fi de­signs tend to have smooth and clean shapes any­way, so there are plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­cor­po­rate those emp­tier ar­eas.
