Over the next few days I am going to go over some resources for learning the basics. I truly feel that the basic art, or design principals apply to your work. There are different views about what the basics are? Here are a few different examples of sites that define the “basics”
Value or tone
Volume or form
Or…. Ok I think you get my point. Also it depends on the medium that you are using, photography, 3D animation, Motion Graphics? I think everyone can agree that color is one of the basics of most of these, even if it is the lack thereof. We will start there and move on into some of the others that apply to almost any facet of design. So stick around if you never paid attention in art class.
