12.25.9 Jay Moore study

I'm trying to apply new principles that I've learned, here it goes:

  1. Very nice study Brian, variety in shape sizes and edges aplenty! Also more structure than in work I've seen you do before.

    Do you mind sharing the principles you were applying here?

  2. Thank you Dan!

    I'm learning more about the uses of focal points and how to better use an area of intrest, in this case how to apply value
    to the area you want your viewer to really notice. One thing Moore had shared was the
    idea of not scattering your darkest dark value,
    but rather have areas of lesser importance be
    of a lighter dark value.
