thank you so much for sharing it!!
I think that scene composition is one of the most challenging topics to face when realizing a painting (in particular, I find it quite complicate, lot of practicing is awaiting for me, sob XD), and your tutorials is really helpful and clear!

This is great! In classes they always told us about the rule of thirds, but they never went into much detail and just pushed us forward to the next subject. You've covered a lot of good points that they missed~!!! :w00t:

The part with the dead centre is one of the first techniques people learn when designing Wallpaper, cause if you use a Wallpaper as Desktop background, it seems so squeezed and small (not always but often)

Good tutorial.

Digital 3d artists could use this stuff too.
