Spotlight - Muddy Colors: Composition Basics: Sketching Thumbnails

This month, Spotlight is looking at the foundation of creating compositions - the thumbnail sketch. Going back to the Muddy Colors blog, this is illustrator Dan Dos Santos' method for finding a strong and clear thumbnail. It's his approach to sketching for a client, but it's a great way to establish a strong beginning for any piece. It's also worth looking at his post on Value Structure, linked to in the article below, but I'll also provide a link here.

Here's the link: http://muddycolors.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/composition-basics-sketching-thumbnails.html
