This is how I think about the "artist room". LeO has just been called to clean some mess... So it's a part of a possible page, divided in 3 panels.
I don't really know what to say about this question.
All I can tell you is why I did that one like that. First of all the background has been done as if it would be only one picture. Then I put my character (the same one) crossing this image at 3 different moments... I want a general view to show the room where he is working in, and at the same time introducing some action (him going from the left to the right in a hurry). Then I divided my panel into 3... so the reader doesn't mix with having 3 times the same character... (As I said, I'm thinking in black and white terms... so everything has to be very clear... If it would be full color I could have found other tricks..)... then to speed up a bit the action, I decided to use some diagonal instead of vertical lines to "close" the panels... and of course I did them in the way of the eye reader should go. I always put an extra thinking to try to choose where the eye of the reader should go, without him/her knowing it... trying to make some dynamic lines like the ancient european painting construction.
et voila ... I think... :)
Wow PieR thanks for the detailed answer.
I have some of the things you said in mind but wasn't sure about them. Sometimes I have doubts wether the diagonal lines to close the panel really makes the panels "move forward in a hurry", in my drawings.
soo thanks some issues are cleared up ! ^_^
Can you tell me about these three panels? The shapes of these panels I always see in Japanese comics.
