Tuesday Tips — Composition 101, Rule of 1/3
This is an easy one to remember. Divide your canvas in third, both horizontal and vertical. And put your focal point where the line intersect.
Sometimes I don’t always have it right away at my initial sketch, then no worries, just move around your canvas a bit and adjust it.
This example is from KFP Legend of the Masters when I worked with Max Boas and Nate Wragg.
A quick exercise for the Avalanche Software art blog. The theme was “Dinodystopia”.
I wanted to focus on composition and directing the eye with lighting on this one. It was fun to do!

Starfox commission that I did at SLCC. This was such a blast to draw!
Things I sometimes do to get over artists’ block. Hope this helps!
A big thank you to everyone who came out to say hello at Comic Con! It was such a blast meeting everyone. Thank you for loving my prints and chatting with me at the booth. It was awesome to see you and make new friends!
My boothmates were freaking fantastic as well, so hop on over to say hello to Annie and Ky.
Also, I noticed after the Con that i’m just shy of 1,000 followers! Wow, you guys!! Double thanks are in order!
Oh gosh! You’re so nice, thank you so much! I don’t think Nintendo hires American artists, so i’m content just drawing them for fun. :)
Thank you again, and thanks for coming to see me at Comic Con!!
Comic con! Come see us all at Green 34 at artist alley!
If you’re at Salt Lake Comic Con, come say hello! We’re in booth Green 34!
The ALSA’s #icebucketchallenge finally made it’s way around to the Holden house. A dear friend of mine lost her father to the disease only a few years ago. That wonderful man happened to be my wife’s OB at the time of our first pregnancy, and his passing was a sad day for so many. If there’s anything we can do to stamp out the disease, I say don’t wait till someone challenges you to dump a bucket on your head—just give what you can now.
EDIT: You might not be hearing the adorable voice of that little narrator if it hadn’t been for our good friend and doctor. Please do consider giving.
Anthony, you have me in tears. Thank you so so much. I’m sending this to my whole family!
Thank you for taking the challenge and for being such an incredible friend. You’re the best.
Anthony Holden, everyone. Go give him some love.
