Discussion 5- Kefin Bryan

This illustration was done by Dan Dos Santos. This is what I call a badass illustration. The amazing use of value with the black gray and white showcases how much of an intense image this is. The man running the horse in all black showcases the deep connection he has with the other values as the gray it’s just generalized to make the black pop out more. The white is a contrast to the balance with the black to showcase the journey has just begun. The journey is to delight and to the light is the victory. It looks like a war is about to happen and it feels like I want to be a part of that said war with the guy riding on the horse. This is the most effective way because this illustration is telling a story and it makes it clear as to what story is being told.

Discussion 4- Kefin Bryan

I chose this illustration from the official Zelda Twitter as it was used for promotion of the Super Smash Brothers Ultimate Game. The reason why I chose this because it is one of my favorite illustrations coming from Nintendo and there is a great use of balance within the set image. The balance of having two characters circle around and what the triforce and a text in the middle showing great balance. The reason why I consider them effective is because of how powerful the image looks and what kind of techniques this person used. He uses perspective as in the characters are more in the back and I reach their hands towards the triforce as like perspective. And the way I would use balance within my work is to draw up some characters and some shapes and to put one big character or one big shape in between like with this illustration right here. I really do like this piece since it’s a good illustration, a lot of power in between this and I love Zelda. Art done by Satoru Takizawa
