formatting question

If you’ve been following my giant robot thread, then you already know about the problem I am having with the size differential. This is a different issue being addressed here- namely the orientation of the aspect ratio

I generally work in a 3:4 upright format because that’s pretty close to cover art and I am an illustrator. I am comfortable in that mode and sometimes my finished work gets purchased for covers, so it makes sense

But I don’t have to do that for each and every piece. Honestly, I think this piece looks better in portrait format because it seems taller and that is a vibe I like to cultivate in a giant robot piece. However, the landscape format does have some merits as well… Anyway, what do you think?

  • which layout to you feel best suits the subject matter?

    • landscape
    • portrait

  1. I would prefer the portrait one (although the thumbnail version in the option doesn’t do it justice)
    I agree that it might give it more “height” and contrast of its size…

    But it all comes down to what you want to achieve…
    Show more landscape or it’s size…
