Whether you are picking up a pencil, brush, or camera for the first time, or you have been an artist for many years, there is valuable information on this website for everyone. Not only does Dynamic Symmetry Art have a vast amount of material on Dynamic Symmetry, but it also has the most comprehensive collection of advanced composition tips anywhere on the Internet.
The principles outlined in the "Tips and Techniques" PDF found here form the basic building blocks of art that, through the artist's unique vision, intuition, and training, can be applied with infinite variety. Additionally, because there is a significant amount of knowledge involved in the study of classical skill-based art, this is a continuously evolving document that will help any artist achieve their personal goals, put them on the most productive path for creating masterful compositions, and allow them to learn at their own pace.
As a result of studying design religiously for over ten years, I believe that learning the art of composition is a never ending journey but will reward those that are willing to put the time and effort into their studies. In truth, the more desire you have to learn and the more foundational skills you acquire over time, the better your artwork will become.
