Creator Tips and Tricks #3 : Visual Narrative Principles

By AhkwardKatCommunity • Nov 30, 2021 1



Visual Narrative is the term used to refer to the art of storytelling with visuals as a main communicator. It includes mediums like comics, manga, commercials, marketing and advertising, soap operas, film, documentaries, reality TV, cartoon shows, TV journalism, and more. It’s a very wide field that encompasses one main task:

Show, don't tell.

This phrase you have probably heard over and over again if you are experienced in the visual narrative fields. If you are not familiar with it, let me explain this concept:

Show the audience / reader what you wish to communicate, what you want them to know, instead of using narration or dialogue to do the heavy lifting for...

Creator Tips and Tricks #2 : Margins and Trims for Comics and Manga

By AhkwardKatCommunity • Nov 16, 2021 1


What ARE Trims, Margins and Bleeds?

Simply put, the trim is the line where the comic or manga paper will be cut. The Margin is the area inside of the trim line that will remain and the bleed is the area outside of the trim, specifically the area that gets cut off.

Working digitally do we even need to worry about these margins anymore?

It depends on what your final purpose is and if you want to prepare for all possible future possibilities. Whether you are printing or not, you should know these areas and it is in your best interest to use them should you ever decide to print your digital comic or manga. Traditional artists can use these as well! A lot of Blue Line Paper made...
