Whew long time since ive posted here from back in the day but found my way back here while watching some comixlaunch stuff and through comixtribe. A couple months ago I started working on my creator owned graphic novel to tell a new story as much as to see if I could pull it off. Here are the first 9 pages of it. Also my writer is Cary Kelley from Dynagirl fame.

Wow, pro work! I could definitely imagine this on the shelves.

Any tips (or links to online tips) for planning good layouts? :-)

I can only say what I do. I visualize each page more like a movie and envision the camera moving around and use my panels to fit the scene. If its a chaotic shot or stuff with a lot of movement I use angular panels. For things thats more calm I use more basic panels.

Thats all Ive got on that more intuition than scientific theory i think

well I have the first 40 pages penciled and inked and now I have my colorist working on some promo stuff right now. In march the sequentials will start being colored. Right now, I'm aiming for an Image submission early summer time, if that doesn't go well self publishing time I guess.
