@15:30Wow, this is amazing! I've never noticed any of that!

Now I wish that my art could tell a story. All of it is just meaningless. You'd make a great art teacher, mind being mine? xD

@00:38I'm really glad you made this video. I watched the one you linked to a while back, but regardless, it helped me to understand the idea of the paths. I'd read about it, but the example had multiple subjects and was difficult to understand. This video was extremely helpful to me. Thank you! :glomp:

**************

In this video tutorial, I introduce you to picture composition and artistic technique by explaining a lot about my painting "Red Panda Forest" from early 2011.

The painting I'm talking about in the video is this one:



Don't miss my tutorial on photorealism:



Disclaimer: The panda was painted to precision from photographic reference provided by ~RedPangolin (The photo doesn't seem to be online anymore, though).

@14:21Although there are some interesting points raised in this video, the narrator talks way too slowly in a monotone voice and I found myself skipping almost half of the video.

@14:21Then you're the only one, everybody else loved it. Also, there are people who don't speak English all that well - ever thought of them? They are glad I'm not talking like someone from the city, who can't seem to speak normally. In addition, if you are too fast, people can't follow with their own thoughts and don't learn anything.

Amazingly helpful, as soon as you started pointing out the routes the eye follows my mind started thinking of all different stories for the painting :)

The theory with the brackets is also very interesting, I also found it impossible to find all of the hour glasses!

I will definitely try to implement these techniques in the future, can't wait for your next tutorial ^^ (and yes I have already looked at the photorealism one which was also helpful!)
