I'm taking out the "It's magic" part of Panel layouts. ^_^

This also has some basic design principles which will be built upon later.

I should note that some of the things like the A4 paper, and making one read left to right, are personal preferences. Take away the principle more than the personal opinions... ^^;

Note: These are not hard and fast rules, but general rules for you to understand and correctly abuse later.

Other tutorials on panel layouts: (Because I didn't make this stuff up)

Kyou Mo Ashita mo (by Emura, a mangaka) <-- How the pros do it in manga form. Has tips and tricks that us regular people don't get. So get taught by a mangaka. =P You can find the scans online.

I'll be adding more stuff than what's listed in the previous tutorials.

If you have questions after reading all 10 of them, let me know. And if your paneling improves, I'd love to see the results with a direct link.

I'm actually trying to make a comic, which I'm not used to doing. Erm, I've made some very easily avoided mistakes (like inconsistent character design), but your tutorial is helping me to think about panel layout. :)
mylittlealicorn-blog.tumblr.co… is where it is right now (I think I'll upload them here, too.)

There are 10... so it's worth looking at all of them. They have bubbles, etc explained which might help enhance effects you want with minimal effort.

Kyou mo Ashita mo got picked up by Viz. W Juliet II went in hiatus, I think. (Don't quote me on that).

There are 10 tutorials total. 8-10 are not complete, though the text is pretty much written up. (9 is a bit of a mess.)

There are about 10 of them. 8, 9, 10, are not complete. Most of 8 and 10 are complete and posted, but not quite.
