    By ThatDudeWithTheFood
    Just a quick one today guys.


    Visual Center

    That right there guys,Thats your Visual Center.
    Place important elements or the focal of your work in that area.The visual center is slightly above and to the right of the actual center of your work.
    Now like I mentioned in the last tutorial,This doesn't mean you have to just place every single render or effect on the left or right side of your signature.Depending on the flow and other composition of the signature sticking the thing right there in the middle might be the best choice.
    Contrast
    Adding contrast can be very rewarding.
    Examples would include putting a big object next a small one or a fiery color next to a cool watery one.

    Choose colors that work well together like blue or yellow. Stay within your piece of work.If your creating a calm picture stick with the cool colors.If your doing a wild atmosphere throw in some reds and oranges.


    Thats all for today guys.Have a good one.

    P.S Have a good idea for a tutorial? PM me.Want to see something specific? PM me.

    Needs way more explanation.
    "Here's a color wheel, remember contrast, the end." Doesn't cut it by far.
    What should I be looking at with the wheel? It's got an X on it, what? I should use blue and yellow, what?

    Needs examples too.

    Also a "more is not always better" section wouldn't hurt.

    Yes I'll edit this post to blank it out later.
