ArtQuest Week 1 - Digital Art Basics: Composition
Welcome to ArtQuest, an educational program designed by the staff and members of GimmeFeedback.
This week's feature is Digital Art Basics, brought to you by Birgitte-Gustavsen. :clap:
Let's begin!
:pointr:ON COMPOSITION:pointl:
Composition is the placement and arrangement of elements in an image. These elements can be line, shape, colour, form, value and space.
It is the whole thing and everything within. It's one of the fundamental things of visual arts. It's there whether you think about it or not. Whether it is a good composition though, is a different matter.
:bulletblue: Tips and pointers when you start with Composition
- Think about what you want to achieve with your image. What sort of feel should it have? Should it be airy, spacious, peaceful, perhaps? Or do you want it forceful, dynamic, crowded? Whatever you choose amongst these and many more, will need a plan. A plan that will bring out what you want. Choose wrong, and you may not get the image to give off th

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 13, 2015, 12:16 AM

Yesterday my favorite author died, aged 66. I am neither family or friend, and yet I cried. The idea that I will never again pick up a new, pristine and unread book by him, quite frankly, sucks. Opening up the newest addition to my bookshelf was like a second Christmas, and at his most prolific it came around just about every year.

His imagination was tremendous, only overshadowed by the funny things he could do with English. I suspect he must have loved words a great deal, and possibly they loved him back. My copied of his books have cracked and loose spines, with nicks, bumps and yellowing pages. I do not forget the stories, but the delight I take in reading his English never fades.

His world could cheer me up when nothing else would, and for that I loved him. Reading his books made me want to write too, and for his skills I admired him.


Just because something is funny, doesn't mean it's not serious. Just because it's unreal, doesn't mean it's not true.


I will miss him.

I could spend hours looking at your gallery, omg *.* I'm sorry I'm a little too lazy to comment on each one of them so here's a general comment: You have incredible art, I really the colors you use and the way you use them and that each piece seems to have a soul. I look forward to seeing more of your art around here! :) (Smile)
