A Comics panel pattern historically identified as 'risky' but there's now clear rules to follow that work in Manga & western Comics; + my ASD self passement tests tend to back up my suspicions!
So, I saw this on my Facebook feed a few weeks back, and I thought I'd join you over here so I could throw in my 2 cents.
Looking at your unlettered panels, my eye is naturally drawn down from panel 1 to panel 2, then over to the right. There does seem to be a lot about the composition of panel 1 that draws the eyes down and panel 2 is also a fraction larger than the panel above. I'm curious, are these conscious decisions you made as someone who's been doing this a long time and knows how it works, or are they unconscious decisions made by someone who knows what they're doing so it just comes naturally?
