Example of Value Variation

“Robsybot Spaceclash

In this piece by badillafloyd on deviantart, shows a great variation of highlights and midtone values all working together to create a sense of depth, creating a serious kind of mood for a funny yet confusing concept. The way the artist used tone organization with the help of highlights as well, was to make it as though each characters is coming out of the dark which helps them to appear to stand out more (however, the moon behind the robot stands out more than the robot itself, when the robot perhaps is suppose to be the main subject of this piece…?). With the source of light coming from the moon, it acts as the “highlight” on the characters for them to project more (since apparently they’re in space where it’s pitch black). The artist also uses value structure to indicate the importance of subjects in the piece.
