   * **Foreground**:​ You will almost always describe what is in the foreground, but you do not always need to state it. A good example is when you have a panel that is a close-up of a character’s face - describing it as a close-up delivers sufficient information for the reader to accurately imagine the panel. (Note: there might be things in the midground or background, behind them, that you may need to clarify further.)   * **Foreground**:​ You will almost always describe what is in the foreground, but you do not always need to state it.

 +  * **Background**:​ The background is described often, and a good rule of thumb to remember is: if the background does not change from the previous panel, you probably don’t need to describe it again. To cut down on repetitiveness,​ you can also sometimes say things like “in the (far) distance…” to describe the background, instead of always saying “in the background.”
