Action Part 8 - Visual Vocabulary of Graphic Novels and Comic Books

The Decisive Moment

As a storyteller you must choose the decisive moment in each panel that communicates to the reader clearly.

Relating to action it could be the end of the action - ExplosiveAction.
A quarterback releases the football.

It could be the moment before - Anticipated Action.
A quarterback rears back with the football.

It could be at the height of the action - Suspended Action.
A quarterback starts forward motion to throw the football.

If you have someone pose for you. Have the model do the complete action. Study the arc of motion and pick that decisive moment.

To be continued.... Next Balance.
