This challenge was made by :iconwinepire: Their features -- > 2017 Composition ChallengeTime for another update! There is now a deadline and a 2018 composition challenge is happening!
I'd like to take this chance to let participants know that this challenge will end on December 30th. On that day I'll be submitting the features during the day and I'll be able to keep adding to it as people submit their final entries.
I'd also like to announce that thanks to everyone's support and participation, I'll be hosting another composition challenge next year! I'll be publishing it on December 31st so I may make some changes to it between now and then, but here it is: 2018 Composition Challenge !

Hey guys! I've created an FAQ to hopefully answer some questions you may have on how to follow the challenge so that you can be featured at the end!  2017 Composition Challenge FAQ
I've also changed the rule about going in order being optio

I was tagged in their challenge and really struck me as an interesting challenge to do. A lot of people ask me about my inspirations and how I learn composition. Here are a few of my inspirations that helped me improve my composition. Hopefully they help you too. :) Most of these were taken from my favorites. 

Keep in mind that some of these utilize multiple compositions. Even ones that aren't mentioned within the challenge. (triangular, Fibonacci spiral, one-color composition etc)

1. Symmetrical Composition
  figures don't need to be perfectly symmetrical, but there should be an equal and similar balance
  Myriad by escumeCube terrarium by longestdistanceHARD de KONEKO by tourniiquett

2. Asymmetrical Composition
  not symmetrical but visual weight is balanced using negative space or background details
Ruby Rose by Memipong your place by loundrawThe universe blessing and sea travel by funarium

3. Circle Composition
  a composition which leads the viewer's eye in a circular motion
  Kohaku by Yaphleensea and sky by megatruhNo Flowers Without Rain by Nyanfood

4. Diagonal Composition
  a composition which leads the viewer's eye in a diagonal motion
  Waves of emotion by Taro-K DTM by TomiokajiroSengoku Jidai by redjuice999

5. High Angle Perspective

6. Low Angle Perspective 
  viewer is looking up at the character, can be as dramatic or subtle as you'd like

7. Surreal 'Floating' Background

Boy by Naomamenora by INstockee


8. Scene with Full Background
  if you're up for even more of a challenge, try making the background the focus
  Guild Wars 2 Kite City by RuanJiajourney by zhongbiao A Quiet Morning Walk by sae-midori(added another one because this is my favorite category)
