There is plenty to suggest a story unfolding in this image "Story is the overall idea or concept of the piece," says digital artist Andy Walsh. But throw in a little backstory or some elements that make us go deeper into the scene or character, and your audience will not just appreciate the piece but delight in it.

Analogous colours are colours that sit next to one another on the colour wheel; these types of combinations will offer balance. This image will have a slightly desaturated complementary palette to help reflect the feeling of despair. Make sure you enjoy it A unique image that conveys something that is meaningful will always capture an audience "The key to making interesting work is to make art that you find interesting," says Hong.
