FREE Comic Layout Templates with Golden Ratio Layer for Procreate, PhotoShop + PNGs

With the new Procreate Layer Group feature you can now easily do comic strips as well as page and panel layouts on your iPad. For my personal and professional work I created some layout templates for comics, mangas and cartoons. You can download them for free or make a small donation to support my work.

The Procreate file (4947 x 3249 px) with 3 layers in a "LAYOUTS" group is great for:

  • Comic PAGES (e.g. graphic novels) use blue grid and portrait orientation

  • Comic STRIPS (e.g. newspaper strips) use red grid and landscape orientation


Both layouts can be used with the GOLDEN RATIO template I included on a separate layer. It's very helpful to create harmonic page layouts and pleasing compositions!

TIPS


  • For drawing clean, straight panel borders I recommend using the QuickLine or Streamline (stroke correction) features (see Procreate Handbook).

  • Keep your panels in separate folders. Use sub folders for text and speech bubbles. This allows you to easily drag around and rearrange your panel layout. 

  • If you use the PNG files set the layers to "multiply" and put them on top of your artwork.
