Newest boards!

I will be a mother fucking storyboard artist. Even if it kills my neck!
Lot of changes in this one; departing from the Kuzma style of drawing to a more rapid sketch line, much bolder guache style colouring. And an original commercial by me! The idea was a single camera moving along the bell logo. "Where ever you are, however you are, Bell is with you with new blah blah 4G service."
Crits are more than welcome! Where can I improve?

New Storyboards!

Hey! It's been awhile but I am still alive and working away at those storyboards. Here's the latest batch, the next set will look quite different as I experiment with a less watercolouree way of colouring.

Resources: Blogs and Websites

Hi guys!

This post is about some cool blogs and websites you might want to check out:

Today's Inspiration, illustration from the 40s and 50s lovingly managed by Leifpeng who is also a great illustrator in his own right.

Animation Archive, a digital archive (and actual physical museum/library) devoted to animation and illustration art. You don't have to be a member to browse a huge selection of digitally archived art. They also have a podcast.

Gurney Journey, a blog by James Gurney (creator of Dinotopia, hellz yeah!). If you're into it, he has a few books out on realistic fantasy painting and lots of neat painting and drawing advice on his blog. Also a really accomplished fine artist.

Resources: Organizing Background Layout Elements

Hey guys!

John K. is an amazing animator (Ren and Stimpy, you guuyyss!) and he posts all sorts of interesting observations and advice on his blog. I came across a really great post about the ins and outs of layout organization which I thought some of you might find useful. See the post here.

Another one about positive/negative space can be found here.
