Dealing with Tangents in your Art

One of the most important art lessons I ever got was when my studiomate Ole Comoll showed me what tangents are – and how to avoid them.

In this video I try to pass that lesson along while using examples from my own art. Tangents are everywhere – and once you see them, you can’t unseen them. You’ve been warned!

    what really is the point of getting rid of the tangents?

    This is definitely something I am working on too. I think besides clear storytelling, if the tangent doesn’t make it confusing, it can definitely distract the reader and pull them away from being engrossed in the story.

    This is really good to know … though, I think you were a little hard on yourself …

    this was good to know, though, I think you were a little too hard on yourself in many of these examples …
