Film Studies

Lately I've been making a study of stills from classic films. It's a great way to learn about composition and colour. Here are a few I've done recently:

  Colour Study. From  Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

 Compositional study. From  O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)

Film studies have helped me with storytelling, as every shot is deliberately composed to help the mood or narrative. I hope to translate what I have learned into comics one day.
