I’ve tried experimenting with different angles and compositions. So far the ones that interest me the most are 6, 8 and 11.
I could only make six thumbnails, due to lack of time. I I had to go to two orientations back to back yesterday and as a result, I had no time to get these thumbnails done until today. So I ask you, out of all of the sketches, which one do you think should I go with? I need to know as soon as possible.
