How I came to be here is a mystery; what I'm here to accomplish can only be a Cosmic Caper.

Pop the ? "Storytelling in Pictures"

>> Saturday, February 23, 2013

The layout was made at the standard comic page size 6.875 x 10.5.
By this stage, all the design kinks have been worked out. Notice the flip between panels 1 and 2; starting the narrative in the present helped the flash back come across more effectively. The drawing is clear and makes storytelling the primary aspect of this layout. Caption and balloon placement at this stage help the flow of the page and save drawing 'dead area' for positioning them afterwards. Every part of the drawing counts. 

Of course all the I've learned is from studying the very best. Google Gil Kane, Wally Wood, Alex Toth, Jack Kirby, and John and Sal Buscema, to name a very few...Up Next: Full Pencils.
