okay, I’ve already posted these in the appropriate forum on the main page, but I’ll kick start this thread, as I’d love to get any more feedback as it’s a skill I’m considering improving with the goal of maybe adding it to my professional artistic bow. This is the first time I’ve ever done story boards, so its a good way of practising both figure drawing and speed drawing. The two pages are a very brief storyboard of a scene from my almost completed novel, Hit the Floor, here’s the text which would accompany the scene (the panels run left to right, down, left to right, down, etc):

She’d been asleep for nearly twenty minutes when the chill noise of a the alarm’s blip cut through the cosy atmosphere. Instint kicked in for Nick when the hairs at the nape of his neck bristled a fraction of a second after the noise hit his ears. His Sig 228, never more than a few meters from his person slid comfortably into his palm. At the movement, Toni was starled back into wakefulness, sitting bolt upright when she saw the gun in his hand. Her hen to drum forcefully in her chest, despite her best efforts to stay calm. She looked to him with wide eyes as he storked her hair.
“Calm down,” he whispered.
“easier said than done. What’s wrong?”
“The alarm just blipped.” He gestured to a panel on the far wall with a green LED blinking on and off. “That means the security measures are off.”
“Jerry?”
“A longshot.”
That blunt answer told her much more than he might have guessed. That meant one thing, Jay had found them. Nick picked up the remote and increased the volume on the TV to mask the noise of his footfalls as he crossed the wooden floor to examine the panel.

Hi all,
here’s a quite dated storyboard, which I digitized recently:

The camera instructions yet to be uploaded are on a separate file, originally placed under the frames.

hey great work guys!

i find sumtimes u can’t really crit storyboards,cos storyboardists are usually following instruction from the director,so u can’t tell a storyboardist to just change things,cos it may ruin the directors vision.

PENCIL-SLINGER,

Thanks for the compliment, no, I think it’s great to see cool storyboard art!!! I myself have tried doing this kind of work and realize it’s really tough to do well. So I really admire those who succeed at it! Keep up the good work! :slight_smile:

The former animator and director (Hendel Butoy) from Disney is “developing a full
length
animated feature on the life of Jesus using computer generated
imagery.”

I have a few from college … sorry for the load times. :smiley:

An unfinished 3 pager …

Jack and Jill went up the hill … you know the rest.

This one is for my father.

All of these have character, story and design by myself. I haven’t done a board yet that wasn’t something of my own design. The luxury of being a hobbiest. :smiley:

Kirt,
“Hobbyist”??? These are fantastic!!! Thanks for posting these! :bounce: Did anything become of the storyboards in terms of a project? :slight_smile:

The first set could be titled, “The Office Gone Wild”. :slight_smile: And, erm, your father is a robot soccer player???!! :scream:

Yes, see CGSociety forums under CGSociety Collaborative Short Film (can’t post those boards here yet) and here’s my first project details (3 pages - more storyboards on last page).

And, erm, your father is a robot soccer player???!! :scream:
No he’s not a soccer player. Maybe it’s too much of a story to explain here. Let’s just say he passed away shortly after helping me move for college and he was always with me and in my thoughts during that period of my life.
I forget, Kirt, wheredja go to school?

Gotcha about the school…gotta go check to see the “Turning Forty” project out!

And BTW, hope you consider my offer. :slight_smile: :deal:

I just found this cool thread, and though I would join in. This is a storyboard I did for a class last quarter. Sorry that I don’t have the captions that go with them.


#16

Frumsylgu,

WOW!!! This is just fantastic work!!! Can you tell us something about the medium used, the project these were done for, etc? :slight_smile: Also, it would be cool if you could tell us a bit about your bkgrd / training. :slight_smile:

Cheers! :slight_smile:

Thank you, I appreciate the feedback. The project was done for a story boarding class I took last quarter. The assignment was to find a script for a movie and produce 25 boards dipicting the action. I used the Disney version of the Three Musketeers. I chose it because I had read the book, but couldn’t remember seeing the movie (I didn’t want my work to be influenced by it). It turns out that the scene I did wasn’t even in the movie (after doing the story board, I understand why).

The medium I used was prisma markers for the most part, but unfortunately I ran out before I finished (not to mention I was getting a headache from the fumes) so I did the last 10 on the computer with painter.

As for my background, I am currently in my second year at the Art Institute of Colorado going for my B.A. in Media Arts and Animation. I’m focusing myself toward character animation, but I also really enjoy doing concept work.
