Hey guys, I've had a longstanding interest in both writing and art, and have recently almost finished my first full length novel. I've always greatly admired storyboarders for their ability to tell a story in quick, simple drawings, in particular those who have story boarded for movies. So, as a minor challenge for myself, to try and loosen up my drawing style without references, I decided to have a shot at storyboarding a piece of the final chapter I'm writing. There's only a couple of sheets this far, and I probably spent too long on them (somewhere between 3.5 - 4 hours for the two), but I'd love to hear any views from those who do this kind of thing professionally.
The basic scene is that the two people, male and female are alone in the building at night, watching tv when the alarm goes off unexpectedly... the boxes run left to right, down, left to right, etc etc.
