Hello

My name is Maddy. I am a storyboard artist at nickelodeon, I have a webcomic called Help Us! Great Warrior and a cat named Dirtbike.

depcute asked: What sort of revisions do storyboard revisionists make?

depends !

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!)

Here’s the demo version of the song me and Maddy did for last night’s Adventure Time!

The chords are B flat, E flat, F, B flat 

To make it easier, on guitar I play it with a Capo on the 1st fret and the chords A, D, E, A

This version was played on a ukulele tuned down a step (to F, B flat, D, G) — and the chords played as C, F, G, C

Here’s the lyrics:

Bb

Where are you

Eb

little brother

F

are you happy

Bb

or do you feel weird

Bb

have you changed a lot

Eb 

or not

F                                                   Bb

are you ever gonna come back here?

Bb                                     Eb

I shouldn’t have been so hasty

F                                 Bb

You were just a little baby

Bb                     Eb

Or maybe you weren’t

F                                           Bb

I’m not really sure how little brothers work

Bb                    Eb

You were the first friend

F           Bb

I ever had

Bb                  Eb

No one can compare

F                                             Bb

Together we could probably fight a bear

Bb                                        Eb

So if you’re ever sad slash lonely

F

Don’t be

Bb

Cause I’ll be

Bb                          Eb

Right here next to you 

F                                                                 Bb

Cause that’s what big/little brothers are supposed to do

My fiancé and i wrote the Little Brother song for Adventure Time yesterday, here is the demo used for the pitch- it was super fun because we both have little brothers, so we used them as inspiration! 

Note: i am not a singer, nor do i claim to be!!!!!

littlegreenhat asked: I'm sooo envious!! How did you become a story board artist?? How do you apply??

I was contacted by AT after they saw my comics online, they asked if I wanted to do a test, I said yes- I did ok, and was asked to do some freelance revisions, I said yes and did ok, then they asked If I wanted to do a board and I said yes and here we are.
