Every perfected skill is the result of a method. Not the product of random intent.


Quote:
Being able to look at the blank space and see something that should or shouldn't be there.
When we read something our mind work images instantly.
What we do next, as artists, is to project these images in the blank space.
And not otherwise.
That is something that comes natural for any reader or artist.
The reader only need enjoy these images. As when reading prose novel.
The artist need to project these images in paper.
To do so each artist will develop his own method of work which is an application of the big basics of artwork.
Same for writers, there are the big basics of writing and based on these each writer develop his own working method.

If we want work for a publisher in a long project ( a 132 pages serial ?)
he will ask us for our plot of the story. Just to have the big map (sketch) of what we are going to do.
Having the PLOT we break it down and start working the story up, panel by panel. Page by page, scene by scene and so on.
We can work a basic plot for a sequence of 3 panels. Or an elaborated plot for a 300 pages story.
Every story has beginning middle and end.

A writer who can't or doesn't know how to break down his own plot may be an amateur who need learn more of his craft. IMHO
