moment 05 || choice A or choice B

A. Horizontal

When I first sketched out this illustration I intended the view to be orientated as an 'ironic' horizontal view, to emphasize the broken binding in the book. After scanning it, and a moment of reflection, I now wonder if it should be presented like this instead:


B. Vertical

—so the vertical slant of the figure gains focus rather than the book itself...

  2. Thanks for the opinion—I have discovered it is best to go with first instincts and not follow the "Internal Critic"—on occassion he has been correct... but not frequently.
