    want some help with composition

    Hi guys. This is my first time here. I am starting on a painting and I need some suggestions on improving the composition. Please help me. The first picture is the composition. The picture at the right is an old drawing of the subject.

    Would you post smaller sized copies of these? I can't see the whole picture on my monitor, but the head of the bigger guy looks too small for me on the upper picture.
    Anyway: As a rule of thumb it is often said that placing the main subject in the middle of the picture isn't really a good idea.
    You can find a very decent tutorial on composition here. Check the "Golden rule" part!
