A while back, we had a drawing lecture on the position of figures in a simple composition, a few points were covered, such as raising one character above another to make them appear dominating and the lower character recessive in the conversation/exchange/fight/whatever.
I also remember the lecturer going into how we read from left to right and how that influences our views on who is the dominant figure and who is the recessive. But I've forgotten the specifics of which figure in the composition becomes dominant and which becomes recessive, using this Left-Right technique alone.
A is talking to B or B is talking to A, doesn't matter which. I've made them both appear level so as not to complicate things, so here's the question I offer you tremendously awesome bastards.
Which is the more dominant figure in the above composition? A or B?
I know it is everything to do with the direction we read text, that is, left to right and viewing a composition right to left feels alien to most people. The problem is that I read mangas which keep the right-to-left format, so the alienation factor doesn't work as well on me and I just go all pld:
Thanks in Advance!
