    Daily Storyboarding Practice...Hot Pockets.

    AztcFireFlower Thanks for the kind words, E__, it means a lot coming from someone who's been around those guys.

    I chose this commercial because I need to do something about "food" and it fits nicely in 8 frames (2 pages for me). I modified some of the actual camera shots to exaggerate cartoon-wise what's going on. Generally speaking, I think there are two styles of storyboards: presentation and camera direction. presentation boards are more about nice pictures used to sell an idea to a customer--like an ad agency pitching a concept to its client. camera boards are more about the camera angle, lighting and action.

    Also notice that generic TV is shot in 1.33:1 (4:3), not generic widescreen (1.66:1) or superwide (2.35:1) like film. these felt kind of boxy and cramped after working on film stuff.

    the frame numbers go like this:

    1 3
    2 4
    5 7
    6 8

    frame 1: 70's style car doing donuts in parking lot
    frame 2: stoner dude
    frame 3: startled stoner dude, hits brakes
    frame 4: crazy old asian man: "Why you so crazy? You not hungry for donuts..."
    frame 5: asian man pulls hot pockets from behind his back. "You hungry for HOT POCKETS!!!"
    frame 6: stoner dude goes huh??
    frame 7: shot of hot pocket, graphics, text, etc.
    frame 8: stoner dude eating hot pocket. asian guy messing around in the car.

    disclaimer... i have no idea what the fuck is up with the crazy asian guy. it's a bizarre sterotype. after thinking about it while drawing this, i'm guessing it's used to target a market audience of video game playing teenagers and hook them with an accent and catchphrase.

    you can just imagine kids running around doing variations on it like borat's "ve' nice, i like."

    i really hope i get to do movie work instead.

    Update

    28chelseaslater, VeSeljak Thanks, guys.

    Here is more storyboarding practice--I reverse-engineered it from a Subaru Outback commercial. The sequence is the same, but I changed some shots. I made some postage-stamp sized thumbnails and then drew the rest from imagination with a little bit of reference for the bird and a lot of reference for the car. I figure nobody will give you a car-specific assignment without giving you at least some photos of the car, right? but most of it, the people, the backgrounds, most of the animals, etc. were done from memory/imagination because they won't give you reference for that.

    the idea is that you here a bunch of animals chattering animal sounds, but they are tweaked sonically to sound like "ricky." ricky drives out to the forest, heading the call of nature, and is surprised to hear his own name.
    whatever. cheesy.

    This is one of my last quick sketches. page 84 and 85 in my moleskine. a carryover from the last composition-oriented batch and a 20-minute f*ck-off portrait. ballpoint pen.

    GEICO Caveman at the Airport

    AnubiZ Thanks, welcome to CA too, I guess.

    I watched the commercial about 4 times, then did this all from memory/imagination. Used Painter IX and hacked it apart as fast as I could to simulate a quickie assignment. If I was trying to impress the client more, I would probably spend another 1.5-2 hours putting in more gray tones and popping some highlights.

    I dig the song in the commercial. Here is a cool version of it with a really cool lo-fi business CGI music video. It kicks ass.

    did this about fifteen minutes ago on the way home from the gym. fire hydrant under sodium yellow street light. had to bump the contrast and saturation a little because the lighting in my car tends to make me pick duller colors than i intend--especially at night.

    watercolor + white gouache in watercolor moleskine.

    Wow! That fire hydrant is so awesome! The top part is a bit confusing though... It doesn't seem to have the curvature the rest of hydrant has. As if it's viewed in a different perspective. But the details below it are sooo great! I wish I could do that with paint
    And I love the use of graphite in the storyboards!
    Thanks for all the advices! Keep having fun!
    When in doubt, run and shout.

    last night and vacation

    Last night, I had class with Nathan Fowkes again. This week we had costume painting as our topic. To warm up, we did a monochrome. (I'm using acryllics instead of watercolors and white gouache here.) burnt umber and white. (little bit of yellow ochre mixed in with white to warm it up)
    Attachment 193580

    second pose. this time adding burnt sienna, yellow ochre and ultramarine to the mix. kinda happy with the way this one turned out. the only downside of acryllics is that wet-into-wet becomes a lot more difficult.
    Attachment 193581

    quick studies. almost too quick. i use up about a third of the time making a really quick stick figure and taping down the borders. need to probbaly just jump into it if i'm working that fast. these are 7's.
    Attachment 193584

    last pose. came out alright. need to mix burnt sienna and ultra to get that nice dark color if you forget your black (like i did)--they cancel each other out almost perfectly. ultra and burnt umber doesn't work as well.
    Attachment 193587

    last week, i was in chicago(IL), quincy(IL), and out on the western coast of MI. I did these at the Palette and Chisel in Chicago last weekend. all using acryllics: burnt umber, burnt sienna, ultramarine, white.

    and i did these up in Michigan. watercolor and white gouache
    Attachment 193598
    this one was done in a black scrapbook. good idea for night studies.
    Attachment 193600

    P.S.
    Thanks Windmaker, i'm still fighting with the paint. watercolor is so much thinner than anything I'm used to. And mixing white gouache into it changes the way it dries. No excuses, of course, but it's really a pain to figure it out. acryllic is much easier so i switched to it instead of letting my frustration get the better of me.

    Thanks Nyarlathotep the sketchbooks up here have a tendency to swallow my time too. i almost decide to just not look unless i know i have the time to spare.

    Thanks Grandmassa and D@niel I will try to keep it up.

    I will try to take a look at everyone's sketchbook that leaves comments here soon. You know how the forum is though, some days you just can't log in.
