I recently had the opportunity to check out Derek Thompson's Gnomon DVD on storyboarding, and thought that his working method with layer comps was really interesting. I wanted to do a test run of his method before committing to it for my storyboard reel, and this is the result. Unlike digital painting, digital drawing on a wacom tablet is still awkward and clunky to me. Maybe I'll try it with my tablet PC as soon as I get some protective screens for it.
Speed was my main focus here, so it's definitely a little sloppy. I think I read on Rad Sechrist's blog that he did 100 boards in a day. If that's about standard in the feature animation biz, then holy shit.
*EDIT* accidentally wrote Dermot Power instead of Derek Thompson, sorry about that.
