Reading on Value








This is a transition screen in the game Persona 5 done by Shigenori Soejima. This illustration is a simple depiction of Tokyo at night. Everything in the foreground is dark gray, everything in the mid ground is white-gray. As it pulls away from the midground the tone shifts darker until it hits the sky which is sort of black. I thought this was an interesting work because immediately my eyes go to the mid ground because it’s lighter than the foreground but the lights on the buildings bring my eyes towards the background. Overall it has a way of making you look at the whole piece rather than just the lightest area.
