The beginning of something I'm working on. I'm mainly trying to decide which position I want the main character in. I also don't feel like I know anything about composition, and this is also about my 3rd time attempting digital painting, so any tips you can offer in that regard would be greatly appreciated. I think I'm still trying to get used to using a tablet.
Imho I would go with the second. You get a better view of the focus character and its a more dynamic/interesting pose.
There are some brilliant course here. https://svslearn.com/classDetail/-JizJiVMGfEYXNaJgphf which is included if you subscript.
