    thirdeye - Thanks! Yeah. They sometimes could be used as illustrations.

    Dealing with angles agan. I'm not satisfied with this one. Ended a bit too indecisive.

    This is a very clever idea, to make a habit out of practicing design. It is amazing how the possibilities are infinite when you are trying to achieve balance. Seems like you are playing mostly with fine/broad, shape harmony, and positive/negative. I especially like the implication of real space and sense of story in many of these.

    I'd like to know if you come up with a way of consistently creating problems to solve without looking to nature.

    Look up Dave Johnson for someone that uses this same idea for his art.

    He's really good. He did the covers for the comicbook series 100 bullets.

    here's some:

    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."

    M0RS - Thanks. That's good analysis. Right now these are major things I focus on. I don't look at nature to create these problems. It's more like coming up with limited amount of certain shapes that have something in common, arrangeing them on the fly and trying to be observant to what happens.
    OmenSpirits - Thanks for the link. Not really my aesthetics but compositions are really good. I'll take a closer look later.

    I'm really loving these, especially the last one. Such a refreshing idea and yet so simple.

    This is an interesting and great exercise!
    Would be interested to find out how this will integrate into your usual art making.

    Definitely will be giving this a go.

    This is really cool! I'd be interested in hearing about what you're thinking when you create these compositions. Do you look for dynamism? Tension? Harmony?
    No. 29 feels quite harmonious to me and 28 makes me think of the original Star Wars.
    Do you feel that this helps you with your environmental designs?

    HunterKiller_ - Thanks!
    applecheeks - Thank you. It would be hard to explain the whole process in detail. Yes. I look for all things you mentioned. It's figuring out how strong tension I can create without braking harmony. It's also figuring out how far I can push variety without loosing the unity of elements. By unity I mean establishing something that makes all elements in composition seem like from the same "family". Sometimes unity can be very subtle, hidden within the divisions or within negative shapes. I have many thoughts when doing these but on the other hand for some compositions I want to rely on intuition more. I don't want to be too pragmatic with this exercise but leave some things mysterious. Sometimes I put some element randomly and it works (looks good) even though I couldn't explain why.
    I don't know if it helps me in environments beacause it's really hard to notice progress in composition/design skills. I often start a piece from fairly abstract thumbnail so there is some connection.

    They have you do this execise in the FAS (Famous Artists School) learning system.

    I get to this (looked ahead in the lessons) and get graded!

    OmenSpirits - I got something similar on architecture faculty too but on huge format and with paper cutouts rather than sketching.

    Something after longer break.

    Hey Farvus.

    Itīs always fun to look in this thread.
    In school we did that with cut out pieces of black paper on white paper. Each one of us had a different style, even with simple geometric shapes.

    bjoern3000 - Thanks for dropping by. Yeah. You can have personal style comunicated by just shapes or the way you use composition. It's really fascinating subject.

    Best example of a body of this work that I have seen in ages. No feedback necessary...I wouldn't even want to. Beautiful stuff.

    Jason Manley - It's extremely flattering to receive such positive comment from someone who actually teaches composition. I find it hard to believe that you haven't seen such examples in ages but thanks. I feel like I'm still making beginner baby steps with these and there is still a lot to learn. Of course I'm open to any type of feedback in future .

    I'm planning to move to bigger picture format in future. More space would give more play with scale and proportion.
