SH: Storyboarding by Turtle-Arts SH: Storyboarding by Turtle-Arts
I apologize in advance for how large this is. And I also apologize that it's not larger so you can see the details better. It was hard to find a good size because it would have been difficult to split these up since they're all one scene and I didn't want you guys to have to do a bunch of clicking around to get them in the right order. ^^;

I've had this sitting around for a while now, but I kept forgetting to post it. This was the storyboard assignment from my Entertainment class that I did for my IP Sky Herder. :thumbsup: And I have to say I actually really enjoyed doing this. I always thought I would enjoy story boarding, and it definitely didn't disappoint. XD But I actually had the longest sequence out of the whole class, which was kind of hard because we only had five minutes to pitch before we started losing points. >_< I went over, but only by a few seconds. And actually my teacher suggested that I should even add a few cards in some spots. Which originally I was going to make it longer, but I ended up on a 100 card limit because I didn't have enough pitch boards to do more than four (25 cards each) so I could only have 100 max. ^^; Basically, it took the length of the entire classroom wall to hang my boards and it required me running along the whole wall while waving a stick and making sound effects and funny voices to present. Yay college. XD

Anyways, this scene is actually the first introduction to the protagonist character, Mier, so it's right at the beginning of the story. And it's wordless, which was nice because it meant I didn't have to write or pitch any actual dialogue. XD

This scene is actually the one that comes about 10-15 seconds before my animatic, which I posted a while back for you guys -->

So, enjoy. :>

This is awesome! I'm thinking about going to school to become a storyboard artist. Do you have any advice for someone new to it?

Thanks! Hmm, I don't know how much I can give. I'm not actually a storyboarder by profession. I guess I tend to think of it the same as illustration. Try to make every frame something that would be interesting as a standalone image, you know?

Thank you for the advice! I agree that would be a good idea. I'll also look into I suppose showing motion stuffs as well. Already got a book about traditional animation to help!

We had two weeks for the project so I worked on it a little here and there. I'm not sure how long it would have taken if I had tried to do it more like a normal picture though. XD

Man that is so crazy. I was looking through your gallery after having seen your 'problems with wings' fun page and I was thinking 'Dang, this looks way familiar!' and then I saw Mier's head and thought 'No way!' but then I found the storyboards and it blew my mind. I love reading it when we are taking breaks!

I was in there for oil painting this morning. :nod: I don't actually recognize anything in your gallery, which probably means you're either a different field of study than me, or you're younger than I am because I thin I know most of the older art majors. ^^; But I could be wrong

Wow. That's an amazing storyboard! And suddenly the animatic is a lot funnier XD
The humor is this is fantastic! And I love the fact that there isn't any dialogue in it at all. Love the humor in it (for some reason, the clouds watching Mier fly by is probably my favorite part) and the pacing throughout the entire scene.

I am curious though: where did your professor say to add some cards?
Reply
:iconturtle-arts:
Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! ^^ And yeah, I probably should have put this up first. ^^;

My professor suggested I add cards in exactly the places I wanted to add more, but didn't have room. XD We both thought it needed a couple more shots of Mier and the sheep bouncing in and out of sight over the hills before he decks the first guy in the face. And then at the end, we both though it needed a couple more showing the annoyed villagers and such. :I
