I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.

My two rules for Platinum black creatures are 1) nothing can just look like a weird head on a human body and 2) None of the female monsters should look like things human males would by and large be attracted to.

How the crap can you make those kinds of panels? Does it work with circles/ellipses too?

Honestly I’m probably not using the panel tool as efficiently as possible, but I’m only using it as a rough framework to lay things out because I ultimately ink the panels by hand to make them look less mechanical. I don’t know how to do ellipse panels really because I don’t use them so I’ve never bothered trying to learn. anyway, this is roughly how I lay out Platinum Black pages;

Start with a new page with safe area cutoff

image

Drop in the thumbnail

image

select the “rectangular frame tool

image

Draw a frame in the safe area

image

Select Divide Frame Border

image

Roughly cut up the page along the panel lines

image

Hold “ctrl” and click on the panels to use the sliders and binding boxes to fiddle with their size and placement

image

Once I’ve gotten them how I want I hold right click on the layer the get the rasterize option

image

Then I can use the line tool and eraser to futz with panels that aren’t overlapping the way I want.
