Storyboard practice


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.

Yea. I saw that on Rad's blog as well. I don't think 100 is the industry standard. Rad is a machine. I don't think that's a bad goal though. Especially if you're doing an action sequence. You need to be able to move at the speed of thought. The fusion of good drawing and speed has been my lifelong goal. ps. Not there yet:)

In a Spline Doctors podcast, Mark Andrews also said that he draws 100 panels a day. They are awesome.
