    I really like the composition of the day idea. I might try that myself. Nice sketchbook.

    Composition of the Day: "The Show"

    Not really happy with the way this one turned out. I don't think I worked it out well enough at the thumbnail stage. Will have to try this one again.

    I like this last composition. It would make a great illustration.

    Composition of the Day: "The Escape"

    @Shehaub: Thanks for stopping back in! I hope to start turning these into illustrations when I get the time. I often find when I do have the time I suddenly have trouble coming up with something to work on. This way I can have a nice stockpile of ideas to choose from...

    I think you have a great idea here. I have subscribed to this thread so I can come and take a quick look at what you put up for the day. What size do you work in?

    Hey Shehaub

    For these little composition sketches I start out with a bunch of little thumbnails, then do the "final" composition sketch in a little 5x7 sketchbook which I have on me pretty much all the time.

    I've only been doing it for a little bit, but doing it daily has been great. I'm learning a lot. They've actually started developing into some kind of a story...

    Will probably put today's composition up tomorrow- I'll likely be away from the internet for the rest of the day and didn't get the composition done in class today.

    Composition of the Day (from yesterday): "The Fox Returns"

    Wasn't really happy with the way this one came out. Totally missed the feeling I was going for. Will have to take another stab sometime.

    Composition of the Day: "The Challenge"

    Spent a bit more time than usual on this one since I'm not trying to squeeze it in on breaks at work, and to prove something to myself after I wasn't happy with my past two. I'm including the thumbnail for today's- I took it much further than I normally do and I think it helped a lot for the bigger sketch.

    Those last two are several notches above the earlier ones. Good drama on that first one, the gesture of the potential blow, the lightning shapes, the little fox trying to protect the girl. The blue pencil helps liven things up. I also like the design of that minataur, it's size and the flames and pose bring something a little different to a classic character. The story is very clear.

    What is the right thing to do?

    I agree with Armando on the Minotaur. I think the size creates a nice dramatic effect. I am really enjoying watching this story unfold, one sketch at a time.

    Composition of the Day: "Imminent Danger"

    Another stab at the main idea from yesterday's, which didn't end up with the right feeling that I wanted.

    Composition of the Day: "Snakeskin and Thread"

    Decided to take a break from the girl and the fox. Was getting bogged down developing the plot along with the sketches. I think I have a good base of stuff from that to mold into something more finished later. Not sure if that would be an illustrated story or a comic or what, but the characters have developed to a point where the story is writing itself. I just need the time to let that run its course.

    Today's is based on a drawing I did years ago that I liked, but that had some compositional problems I was never able to sort out.
