Looking forward to the prelim boards

here's the preliminary boards for shots 1-30.
After that I got distracted by completing the rewrite.
I have my next draft of that done in pencil, now to type it up and add complete the boards.

You will notice I have an unusual boarding style - not just the crappy drawing style, that can't be helped, but i draw the set with chracters in them. Then i place frames around them based on how I want the shot to be. This gives me a sense of comp;osition and movemnt through space. The downside is that no one else can read them.

That's alright Bill. Da Vinci wrote backwards himself.

Looking closely at your figures, it looks like a romantic scene.

yeah it has a steamy side. the way i see it the whole thing is a set up.
she knows who is in that gallery, the power of the art that lives there, and she wants her friend back. Amy's goal is to trade John for the girl with the dragon. Johns goal is to get lucky. It is his predataory desire that makes him an easy victim for Amy. She has to play him just enough to reel him in.

stylistically I would love for the set to have a continually skewed feel to it. No right angles anywhere. Maybe lots of forced perspective to give that sense of skewed reality. After all this is the home of one of Cthulu's portals to this plane of existence. (I was thinking Cthulu before I saw the "My Uncle Cthulu" picture in the inspiration section of the challenge; it knocked me out and i commited to the portrait as a primary source for that piece, it fits my sense of character. His snot changes John's reality that allows him to be brought into the painting. )

Rough Storyboards or 3D pre-visualization: AmyTestRender



here are some test renders for Amy's character.
I'm going for a version of anime models with textures in a vaguely realistic direction.
i think its a fun explore the stylisation of manga/anime modeling with a quasi-realistic shader style.

i think this still needs alot of work on eye-liner, non-existant eyebrows, eye shader and other areas. i am interested in pushing the shaders in a more realistic direction while keeping the very stylized modeling.

Nice flow in the dragon concept. Should be fun rigging that creature.
 
Old 07 July 2007   #13
thanks. i'm definitely looking forward to rigging him. I want to do a few pose tests before i commit to 4 legs or 6 and where exactly they should go. thankfully my rigging is better than my storyboarding.
