great panelling pacing and layout tips
« on: October 08, 2016, 04:55:01 PM »
So here is a great reference from a manga artist that got published  and she explain something that we never see in the book and is literally one of the foundamentals when you are doing a comic or a manga. Such as how should you place your ballons and other essential stuff so look at it dear artists.

I've been to that site before but it still hasn't clicked in my head, yet. If it was a movie scene I would know since I took a whole semester in how to arrange a scene. But manga paneling still irritates me. Especially when you (as in I) read two very different mangas who panel extremely different.

Yup panelling can work differently in two different manga. The first reason is the style  of the manga for example a shojo manga change the type of panel to make a flashback (usually with round corners and thinner lines). While shonen artist tend more to use the beta method (put the surrounding of the flashback panel in black). Some artist just put a grey tone over the panel. Great artist make it work! But a good panelling is literally in communication with the subconscious. Our brain can understand what is going on by itself and it keeps a good flow.

but many manga dont follow any kind of rules and just put a panel here and there by the feel for the need of their script  and it is obvious that it doesn't work. Because it might be different from an artist to another but the general rule is the same. We can play around with it there is a million of different way to applicate it but the brain has it limit.

Wow this was so helpful. Thanks!   I'm a manga writer and I'm learning how to write names and manuscripts to help my artist know what's going on
