Making a graphic novel / manga
#24
1. There are videos on YouTube that analyze compositions in movies and how the director conveys the mood and ideas. If you search, you should find videos on how famous directors and studios set up their scenes. 

A graphic novel can be described as a series of "still frames", just like a movie (thats how I like to think about it when im making comics). The book Framed Ink that you are using is a very good start, and you should really read and analyze the book to get an idea how to set up your scenes. 

2. You should set up a scene so that it conveys the mood and clearly tells the story to the reader. Its important to let other people read through your thumbnails/sketches and ask them if they understood the entire story and who is supposed to be who (I often had the problem when I was younger that readers could not understand what was happening in my comics). I dont think you have to worry about overdoing it, indeed, you may wanna dumb it down A LOT so that everybody can understand the graphic novel clearly.  Thumbs_up
