I could really use your help!on March 9, 2011 at 9:51 am
I’ve been considering whether or not my current approach to doing pages is really working at the pacing and with the clarity that I want. You may have begun to notice the change already, as I begin to slowly transition to fewer panels per page. After much discussion with fellow manga readers and artist friends, I’ve done some mockups of how the earlier Twilight Monk pages might be done differently to communicate more of the action. But I want to run it by you, the audience before I go back and rework old pages!
By limiting the number of panels per page, and not filling every panel with a background, I could tell more story, focusing on the details of the action over more pages, while doing the same amount of work. Thus, if I switch to this new method in theory, I can offer 2 or more pages per week instead of the current 1 page/week.
Here are the first 3 pages redone. Please comment! I want to know what you guys think before I make this change!
