Update on Storyboard class!

Update on Storyboard class!

Hello all, It's been a looooooong time, and I'm sorry. I've been as busy as a one armed paper hanger, but that's an excuse. I've been around, but just browsing. I have some cool animatics from Avengers Season 1 that I'll post when I get a chance. I have them, but they have the timecodes on them, and they drive me crazy! So I gotta export my own animatics, but I only have one arm! And I'm a paper hanger! Anyway, we have made a lot of headway lately on the class. Last week, Oats announced the class on Facebook, and on the website. We're hoping that the first session will get underway in January or early February, and then go from there. The f

Don't Go to art school!

Don't Go to art school!

I've been seeing this around the DA journals all day, and it sounds like my kind of journal! It's written by an extremely talented environment artist named Noah Bradley. So I finally read it, and yeah, Noah is right on top of it. Check it out, and lets start the conversation about art and education in this country: Don't go to art school The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change. I'VE HAD IT. I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money. I have a diplo

'Comic Relief: The Art of Chris Copeland.'

'Comic Relief: The Art of Chris Copeland.'

Hey, my brother has worked his ass off and produced a mighty awesome sketch book: "Comic relief: The Art of Chris Copeland." Please drop by his Kickstarter and support him. The coolest thing to me about the book is that it has a preview of his new Graphic Novel with his character called "HIM", and I am telling you, those pages are sick!!! I'm pretty sure most of you guys are familiar with my brother, and his amazing talent. But if you haven't I encourage you to swing by:] Here's the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/253235899/comic-relief-the-art-of-chris-copeland?ref=home_location

Hey Justin! I really enjoy the work you do on the paper wings! I have a question for you that’s been on my mind for a while. What is the first thing an art director looks for in a portfolio when they are looking for a storyboard artist?

Hey, thank you for your :+fav:!!! Heart
Sup brooo, it was good to meet you at CTNX
Thanks for the fav!;)
I had never heard of that podcast before some animation blog linked to it, and I can't tell you how INSANELY helpful just the episode you were on helped me. I really, really want to get into animation so I'm trying to learn about every angle of it (storyboard, scripts, etc, despite actually wanting to ANIMATE) and that was so helpful for me, to know what goes into storyboarding. So thank you, so much.
