Hello again folks! Tonight’s exploration had us trying to create a focal point, on a square image plane, using the techniques of concentration or isolation.
In the first image you can see my rather shoddy attempt at bringing attention to the center of the image by way of isolation. The flowers seem a little out of place in the “brush” if you can call it that. Hopefully it caught your attention.
Now, using the same stencil I tried to create a focal point by creating a dense cluster of flowers on one side, a concentration, to pull your vision in that direction. I payed a little more attention to neatness in this one compared to the first—spent more time on the lines and got some ink practice in.
Here I tried another go at Isolation. My idea was that the comic book would stick out like a sore thumb among the novels. I suppose it would have worked better if Tim Dorsey’s and Neil Gaiman’s book covers weren’t so comical and Sean Murphey’s comic had been more cartoony. Oh well.
I tried to find an example of Concentration occurring naturally somewhere around my apartment, but I didn’t come across anything that really stuck out. The search was pretty interesting though!
