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.
