69 Grid

How to Become a Comic Strip, Comic Book and Graphic Novel Artist

The 6 panel grid.

The grid that is seen most often. So time passes at a regular rhythm just based on the grid alone. Larger panels panels slow the reader down as their eyes linger and travel over it to take in the content. So it has the effect of slowing down time. Use this to emphasize something and show details.
