My new job is Story board artist, that means I get to come up with jokes and draw goofy poses with my board partner.
The rest of the answers are “put stuff on the internet”
Papa Triple H is proud of u…
Every time I see Randy Orton pose……
I had a really good day today.
depcute asked: What sort of revisions do storyboard revisionists make?
For me it’s : redrawing characters to keep them on model- adding backgrounds to scenes- adding more poses so the dialogue is enhanced- once in a while I’ll get to re-board a scene if Standards and Practices says that there have to be changes (board artists are busy working on the next board so they don’t have time for that)
itsbumblr asked: A late congratulations on the Adventure Time episode! I was just curious, how did you pick up storyboarding? Is it something you just had to get a crash course in by observing and practicing it in action? Did making comics for all those years help out? Maybe you just studied it and the answer is super simple. Does Dirtbike ever drool? My gf's cat does. It's gross and adorable. Grodorable.
I know so little about technical storyboarding(technique and camera movements) but I feel more confident in jokes and dialogue and coming up with stories- so that’s where that balances out!
Having done comics for a while seems to help a bit- but a Storyboard is like drawing a super inefficient comic. Every pose and movement has to be tracked versus in a comic I can have a person sitting in a room and then suddenly be in another room.
I bought books on storyboarding and would study whatever boards I could find online~~
For Adventure Time, Adam Muto did so so so much and the revisionists corrected every mistake I made- so it’s all a huge team effort!!
Dirtbike doesn’t drool, but she purrs nonstop (like an engine, hence the name Dirtbike!)
