I did some compositional how-to’s in my early weeks at Warner Bros. studios.   I thought it’d be great to post a series of these on the Tumblr’s for beginning board artists.

This is the first part - the rule of thirds.

This is how I lay out a lot of things!!

I am a dummy and this is a thing I need!

Thank you Giancarlo! This IS gangsta.
Thank you, based god for releasing it from your Chamber of Secrets.

Man, I really needed this reminder of how great the Rule of Thirds is for composition. I often start out with it in mind and then drift away from it as I work, but looking at some of my more recent compositions I really think they would have come out a lot stronger had I stuck with it.

ANOTHER ANATOMY POST! Only three vertebrate groups have successfully evolved flight: Birds, Bats, and Pterosaurs, which are NOT dinosaurs, and are an extremely diverse group of reptiles! Pterodactyl is not the only one. However, birds ARE dinosaurs. Avian dinosaurs!

Wings are not some extra structure you tack on to a creature and somehow the arms go away— they ARE arms. Think about that when you are designing creatures with wings and also giving them arms. That means your creature has six limbs.

Next anatomy post: The anatomy and evolution of DRAGONS. If you guys have any requests, feel free to send them in!
