Stargazer. This was a composition exercise I started many months back, however I’ve been super busy and didn’t get around to putting the finishing touches on it until now!

I was reading the wonderful Creative Illustration by Andrew Loomis (out of print, but free pdfs available online) and he has a great section about informal subdivision as a compositional tool. Informal subdivision is a process Loomis created where you divide your image space unequally (and somewhat randomly!) by drawing a series of horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines, following some certain rules. Then you use those lines to suggest a composition for whatever subject you’re drawing.

You can see the subdivision I created above & overlaid with the final. Instructions on how to do this & further process are on my blog! Try your own!
