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
Drop in the thumbnail
select the “rectangular frame tool
Draw a frame in the safe area
Select Divide Frame Border
Roughly cut up the page along the panel lines
Hold “ctrl” and click on the panels to use the sliders and binding boxes to fiddle with their size and placement
Once I’ve gotten them how I want I hold right click on the layer the get the rasterize option
Then I can use the line tool and eraser to futz with panels that aren’t overlapping the way I want.
Then I ink the panels by hand to make them look a little less mechanical

The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.
This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).
This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.
WOW YOU GUYS So many people expressed interest in doing a daily draw group thing, made me totally excited, and when I get excited I blow things way out of proportion and therefore I have designed a new one hahahaha.
So the way this works is, each day will have 2 opposing prompts. You can choose the one that is harder for a challenge, or the one that is easier if you don’t have a lot of time or it’s an off day. I fully expect to be doing like half easy. Also this is 20 days because 20 days is as far into the future as I can think without having an anxiety attack also April will happen.
Here are the prompts!
Portrait / Action Pose
Interior / Exterior
Black&White / Color
Machinery / Nature
Saturated Palette / Muted Palette
70 / 30 Rule (Explained at about 5:35- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oO2J2ponho)
Suit / Dress
Full Page / Vignette
Gruesome / Saccharine
Industrial / Pastoral
Little Kid / Old Person
Open Space / Enclosed Space
Love / Hate
Pretty / Ugly
Pattern / Random
Form / Function
Modern / Vintage
Cluttered / Clean
Monstrous / Cute
Badass / Innocent
Odds and Ends:
- About once a week I’ll cross off the ones that we’ve done and reblog.
- Feel free to jump in AT ANY TIME!
- Tag your sketches “Easy and Hard Challenge,” so we all know where to look!!!
- NEVER FEEL BAD about skipping a day! Just jump on the next one you can fit in. You can catch up if you want, but momentum is more important, that’s why it’s going to be so great to do this in a group.
OKAY WE START TOMORROW WITH PORTRAIT OR ACTION POSE!
