The framing is nice XD
(Legit, I love the diagonal. Great composition on this one. NO, I'm not covering that I just enjoyed short shot XD).

I'm really dogmatic when it comes to Scott McCloud's thoughts on composition. It's why I don't put panels next to each other anymore, it's why (sometimes) spend as much time on the word bubble placement as I do on drawing the characters, it's why the characters are drawn separate from the backgrounds (so I can move them).

I don't hit people in the face about this, (except for Microraptor on our shared work) but bad composition/word bubble placement will make me a lot less enthusiastic to read a comic. It's up there with regular misspellings and stiff poses.

Scott McCloud is nearly a godsend! I just re-read and seriously took notes off of the Understand Comics...it's why as I'm doing the revamp, I'm doing *mostly* the three tier divided pages, with of course some variation...I've been a bit more mindful of bubbles (but I still gotta work on that), and I've really been working on inking/details and sound effect fonts.

I think sound effects, and making matching/convincing word fonts is an art all it's own o_O Harder than hell (and I still suck at it XD)

Do you guys ever count your panel transition types and try to match any of the profiles he presents? I keep meaning to because I think it will help balance the talk-talk fight-fight... but I have to admit I've never done it

I haven't progressed to that level of planning myself— I just got done rereading the book in December, and tasked myself with work on inking and just making sure the panel set up is varied.

Were those profiles in Understanding Comics, or on his website? Or in another book?

@BB: that is a level of self-analysis that I've never had the time for... perhaps it would be interesting.

As a reader this concerns me more--there are very popular, long running comics on CF that severely damage their own narrative by having no establishing shots/variation in shots. When every panel is bust shots or portraits, I get bored. Really, really bored. I read my own stuff a fair bit, and that's what compels me to mix it up.

Also, there's the old saw: "if you don't see your character's feet once per page, then you're fucking up". I don't hold with this pithy wisdom all the time, but as previously mentioned I got that thing for high heels...

@BD: I admit I have a big fat collection of McCloud's ZOT! on my nightstand and I've barely touched it. Maybe I'm just a degenerate with a short attention span, but I'm always going to be more fascinated in watching .50 cal rounds rip up a Dirkastan tenement than reading page after page of "character development"...

So basically, Donna is working for MARSEC again, but this time in an advisory role rather than as full employee?

Yes, that’s correct.
