Howdy friends, today’s little tutorial is mostly geared towards beginner or possibly intermediate artists, and has to do with the famous ‘rule of thirds’ you’ve probably heard mentioned in the past.
Having strong composition within a piece of art is every bit as important as technical skill when appealing to an audience. Our eyes naturally flow in certain ways when taking in a scene so understanding how to direct and manipulate your viewers’ attention can have a huge subconscious effect on how your work is digested.
This is an incredibly simple and super inexpensive tool to make, yet totally invaluable to any art student, and will probably the easiest tutorial you’ll ever see on my channel! Enjoy!
