    1. Rembrandt's compositional unity and the ways there of guides the viewers eye masterfully into the focal area of the face.

    2. Frazetta guides the viewer to the focal point trough continuing lines formed by areas of variety as well as economy.

    3. Frazetta Uses really dynamic symmetric arching shapes that with his economy of lost edges, small areas of focus really create a stunning dynamic piece that seems oh so simple but so very very beautiful. The lost and found edges, The Economy and emphasis really create a representation that is very close to how we overall visually experience life and what we pay attention to.

    I still plan on working on this regardless of the time it takes. I've been using a grid to help get the correct placement of parts of the painting. I feel that this might be a bit of cheating. It helps see in what areas what parts are wrong, but ideally I think that I should be able to do that without the grid. Also I really need to develop my drawing skills, so so much. Also edge control seems very difficult for me in digital media.

    Darn it edge control and over all managing the hards and softs is bloody difficult and at this stage slow for me. I think I'm doing it wrong in some way. I Feel like My stokes don't have enough control to them and that They destroy the suff underneath them instead of building on top of the old. Practice practice practice.

    a. shapes.

    b. values
    c. edges

    -> I can see that everything is a bit off. I don't know exactly how to fix it. I added shortcut commands to Flip horizontally and flip vertically in photoshop and I've been using them a lot. It helps spotting the areas with mistakes. -> now to figure how to make them right, somehow.. -> Challenge accepted >:3

    4. Hubert Roberts composition is really balanced three points of high contrast that create a triangle continuity. Balance is also created by dividing the bottom of the image from the middle into a dark and light values, each on one side

    These are getting progressively better with each one. I really like seeing that happen. good work.

    I keep repeating the below around here but it applies so I will share. You are making tremendous progress and your analysis are of the most thorough and thoughtful in the forums. This is a great example thread for that so please keep up the great work.

    You are getting about 90 percent there with the three most important things...shapes, values and edges. are you flipping your images horizontally and vertically every minute or so to check accuracy?

    Make a pass at the end where you double check the following, in this order.

    a. shapes.
    b. values
    c. edges

    At this point all I think that is needed is double checking things at the end in a quality control pass...so to speak.

    Keep up the great work.

    Thank you very much Jason for your advice. I will try to take it to heart and learn from it as much as I can.

    5. HTTYD1 Screenshot (not a master, but very important to me as I strive to work in/with brilliant projects like httyd). The variety in the economically blurred out background really makes this shot pop and gives it a dynamic feeling. Dark on dark, light on light, dark on light and light on dark are combined really diversely here.

    Architecture school, bachelors year, is currently eating a large chunk of my time, but I will continue doing these studies as much as I can.

    The analysis you provide is extremely helpful and inspiring at the same time. you've especially brought my attention to continuity and how that plays into light/dark contrasts for increased focus. Thank you!

    Annenguyen:
    Glad these studies have helped you and thank you for your comment ^^.


    Theory2D:
    You are very welcome. It is fasinating how much you can find continuity and the play of light and dark in so many works of art :>.


    ====


    6. Bierstadt Has unity in bringing the viewer to the focal area and providing places for the eye to rest and find interest. It is fascinating how small the actual area of high focus is and how much other areas have subtle guides towards the area of interest. Bierstadt also has really great economy in non-primal areas playing with silhouettes Sharp (those darn difficult ones), soft, lost and found edges.
