Here's a whimsical compostion that Manny Aguilar came up with as a concept story sketch.
Manny is an adult student at the Academy who also assists in mentoring new students in our program. To create the scene, he used graphite pencils and focused on the tonal relationships between the different aspects of the composition. An exercise in controlling light, middle tone and dark scale values between the principle elements in a subject. He had some fun with this.
