Testing out a new way of doing my storyboards. I’ve noticed two things : 1. I really dislike the sketching step when I’ve got no time 2. I tend to rush my storyboards when I should really take more time on them.
And then I’ve noticed another thing : the sketching step is more agreeable to me when it’s just “executing” what I’ve drawn on the storyboard (which implies I’ve already searched for references, poses, etc, at the storyboard step).
So I’m trying to develop way more my storyboard… and so I hope to use it as a sketch later on. So first I do a storyboard which is total crap just to know which angles and scenes I’m going to choose (and I used to stop there, which is a bit sad since it’s rushed and Dam - who helps me on the storyboard - is supposed to judge on the final result depending on this storyboard, which isn’t representative of the final result), and then I draw it better, with references and such.
Later on I’ll just scan that and re-print it at good size so that it will be my sketch. (right now it’s an A3 format on the photo, if you were wondering)
Seems like a good plan.
… Except for the part it makes the storyboard step waaay longer and shit shit shit Dam is supposed to call me at midnight to check on my storyboard aaaah I’m so screwed ! (but so is he anyway |D)
