[EDIT-25th-June 2019. The length of a page strand has been altered in order to better serve the Fan-Fiction Board. The knock-on result is that my general description of where some of these observations lie within the now old page structure is misleading. You will be taken to the appropriate thread but you will need to roughly -double- my estimates]

Laying out a page:

Pearls of Wisdom.

(Top of the page)

Characters proportions:

Pearls of Wisdom.

(Bottom Third, a couple of posts on this subject.)

Similar proportions observation about Galactus:

Pearls of Wisdom

(Top of the page.)

Back when JB mentioned the "buzzards" I started taking Darren's hard work in gathering all the "pearls of wisdom" and started putting them into a document/PDF in case the thread was delet-i-fied. Well, the September "issue" is available and if anyone wants a copy, just send me an email and I'll send you the latest version* in PDF.


* I am constanty fiddling with it. Latest version may vary.
