Visually Enhanced Quotation Final

 I made the first two using quill and ink playing around with the use of the word “Nothing” to put emphasis on the quotes meaning of fighting someone who has nothing to loose and everything to gain.

For this version I decided to make it digitally, placing the white “nothing” over a strip of black on the white background to look like it was possibly cut out to show a void of color unlike the rest of the text which is black on a white background.

“The greatest enemy is one that has nothing to lose.”
― Christopher PaoliniEragon

I decided to edit these concepts to more extremes since the quote is from Christopher Paolini, the writer of the Inheritance cycle. The books are about a dragon rider fighting a war so for this first one I decided to try and make a dragons head with embers along with the quote hand written, with emphasis on “Nothing” going across the head in black.

For these final two, I decided to go for more of torn paper and blood to bring back to the fact that the quote is from a high fantasy story featuring dragon riders and war. The first version has darker text while in the second version the test is tinted gray and there is more emphasis on the blood, hinting at loss and war.

I prefer the last, tinted text version because the gray of the text looks better on the torn and stained paper rather than looking cleaner like the darker text version.
