Paneling tips for mangaPaneling tips for manga by mayshing
Paneling is a part of Graphic design. O_- It's an art in itself, think of how you would do a collage and put together a puzzle, that's how paneling works.
You must understand the basic 2D design element:
movement, center of interest, value contrast, volume, size, perspective.... so on and on....
As for paneling.... there is no set way to do it, whether drawing the picture first, or draw the panel's first, or draw the panels and the pictures back and forth.... it's all upto the artist, as long as the result is satisfying to the artist. Just experiement and find the best way that suits you.
1. Panels must support your content: That's the most important thing.... if one line is going over an important character's head shot, omit that line and let the character stand out~ If one frame is more important than the other, you wish to make it a focus on the page, make that frame larger than the others, sometimes it can even overlap other panels alittle. However, being overly complicated
My name is Shadowlord19 also known as c.l. stewart, miguel shayde, and shalu. I know this may sound like something like naruto what naruto would say if he was a artist, my dream like so many other young comic artist from all corners of the world is to become the greatest manga artsist, and to bring a revolution to this world unlike none other has before, to bring about a manga renaissnce(rebirth). I draw manga, and anime, in my style is a unique simplistic surrealistic art style that i've developed through inspiration brought upon by observing life and anime. I am currently working on my manga shinku eden is drawn in the fore mentioned unique style, and I know it will and shall be a success, as well as my other manga "Echoing Eden", and other future projects will be.|
