Guide to Basic Visual Composition: The Rule of Space

The Rule of Space says that an object in motion will remain in motion unless acted on by an outside force should have more space in the direction it is moving than behind.


The image below can be taken two ways: Either Sailor Moon has more space behind her (where her hair is) because she was moving forward, but stopped to move backwards a little, or she is moving forward and her hair counts as part of her.

This next one has a bit more space in front than behind. It is also more noticeable because 6DEBA casts a shadow and because of the perspective and hill.

The next one is pretty much straight forward.
