Comic Page Template by fear-is-spreading Comic Page Template by fear-is-spreading
Thought you guys could use a nice Comic book Page Template.

This can be used by digital artists wanting a little more traditional feel to their work.

File dimensions are 3300 X 5100 Pixels...
11 X 17 Inches at 300 dpi.

To translate that to a full sized, standard comic page, change it to 6.63 X 10.25 (keep at 300 dpi, or up it to 600 dpi if you really want a nice, crisp translation)... it's proportional, don't worry.

For those of you that have never used templates like this before:
Open this in photoshop (or any program that supports layers), create a layer from the background, create a layer over it.
Draw your layout on the new top layer.
When you've done that, just blank out the template layer...

or...
if you REALLY want to go as traditional as possible in a digital arena...

Draw in a nonreproduction blue color (like the lines on the template) and then draw over that with a black brush or pencil (pencil tool would be better.)
Once you're done with that, convert the whole image to black and white keeping the threshold at 50%. The blue lines won't show up :)

This page is not necessarily standard issue. It's standard Errant Issue... Meaning they are the page dimensions we are going to be publishing.

If you want to submit to us, you must use these page dimensions...

Core members have special privileges to break those rules, but new arrivals do not.
Members of the studio also have a 1200 dpi, non-marked, CMYK PDF version.

Why? Cause I like them better. They're not fuckers... xD

Thank you, that is all.

-Aaron

You have saved my life. Thank you so much. I'm getting ready to start my own graphic novel (finally ready for sketching the paneling, woo! ) and I realized I had no idea about margins and proportions!

:heart: Also, big bonus for explaining it all.
