    Sequential Art and Storyboarding Ring

    The idea was born from the storyboard crit exchange
    that ashess and I have started recently.

    If you're working on a storyboard for a comic or an animation film,
    and you'd like to keep in touch with other CA members in order to
    exchange critiques and advices specific to storyboarding, then

    reply to this thread with a short presentation of your project(s)
    (and a link to your sketchbook if it isn't already in your signature)

    then add a link to this thread into your signature:
    [URL="http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=142985"]Sequential Art and Storyboarding Ring[/URL]

    That's it!

    It's probably a good idea to subscribe to this thread
    so you can quickly know when newcomers arrive.

    Also, have a look at this thread about protecting your work:
    The ConceptArt.Org Independent Artist Philosophy and Biz Thread

    ooh yeah ^^ seconding this idea!
    people, love your stories, and give m love ^^. and that means attention
    my storyboardthread, meant for an animation, is my sketchbookthread.

    its a funny action story playing in a sci-fi universe.
    it centeres on red 38- a biological weapon-warrioress, cursed so she cant kill again-
    and a ragtag crew of very special people that she gathers in her quest to break the curse and kill her brother the emperor.

    What the heck. Leo invited me over, and while it's still going to be a few months before I have the free time and skill to storyboard much, I'll give a list of my main projects. I'm in a pre-animation course right now, and will likely be moving on to animation next fall, but what I really want to do is comics.

    So here's what I've got in mind.

    Xeno's Paradise
    Webcomic about an inquisitive slime and her friends who escape a restrictive society to discover the wonders and pitfalls of the world at large, and are eventually caught up in much larger events. I did this for about six months before realizing that I really need to work on a lot of my skills, and put the thing on hold.

    Minion
    A former evil minion on the run from an influential group of heroes and their allies from both sides of the fence after a final solution against evildoers goes into effect. Eventually she and the young man who ends up as her sidekick realize that being on the run isn't enough and they need to fight back.

    Air Born
    Steampunk enviro-fable, slightly inspired by the opening credit sequence of Laputa: Castle in the Sky. A young girl from a floating island and fascinated by flying machines finds herself in the middle of a conflict between the sky-dwelling humans and the beast men who now populate the surface. I'll probably leave this off until last of the three.

    I've got other minor ideas kicking around, but those are the Big Three, so to speak.

    I have a storyboard/comic book project going on. It's for a company called never.no, and they deal in interactivity-solutions.

    I've basically been comissioned to do a short storyboard for them, which they can hand out to clients to easier explain what their systems offer. It's kinda hard to explain, you see.

    Thing is, the storyboard IS the final product, so I don't know if this belongs in here. Anyway, I'll keep you posted. It's right in the starting phase. Haven't even begun sketching yet.

    @iambanana:
    Sure your project fits in, a storyboard is a storyboard whatever the purpose
    I'll watch your thread and try to help when you start sketching.

    @Nezumi Works:
    Finally! ^^ Maybe you can start storyboarding right now in parallel to training your drawing skills?

    To all: Have a look at ashess's storyboards, they're quite inspirational.

    Posting a preliminary sketch of the storyboard in my sketchbook now

    Have done a few storyboards before. There's only a two-frame long one in my sketchbook though, apart from the one I'm posting now.

    If comic book artists are welcomed in here as well, I'd say the sequential thingy would be better. I wasn't even gonna post here, since my stuff wasn't going to be made into a movie. But then I changed my mind.

    Yes, the ring is for whoever is working on telling a story or scenario.
    I first wanted to name it the Storytellers' Ring, but then I thought that at first sight people would picture medieval minstrels or the like ^^

    Only worked on it for about 1,5h - 2h. Around that. That's why it sucks so much, and because it my first storyboard ever. Man I'm bad at characters.

    Come on and post you too

    hi pokepetter
    I don't know what other members think, but I think it would be better to keep the storyboards in our sketchbooks, and only post a short introduction to our projects here, otherwise the members' intros will get lost in a sea of pictures.
    I'll come back tonight to crit your storyboard

    I think I might wanna get in on this, I have a little project that I wanna get started soon and this'll be a good reason to start a sketchbook thread too. Though it might be about a few days before I really even have anything to show.

    Also I agree about posting pages/storyboards in sketchbooks instead of this thread.

    Hi, Leo. I had a look at ashess' stuff, it's very good. Funny though, I'm playing around with Bridgeman at this point too, I'm thinking I like his "block" approach better than Loomis' "mannikin", so during my break I'm going to be working with that a lot. I think cubes and such come more naturally to me.

    I've got a practice layout for a fight scene (not actually part of any project, just trying things out) I should rework and maybe post later on. If I do, I'll put up a link to the entry.

    And some gameplay boards by the same el coro along with his graphic novel there: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=123338

    How about starting a resource thread in the Resource section of CA?

    I've added a list of links to the intro posts in the first post of this thread.

    Thanks pokepetter! I knew about a few similar programs but never thought of using them for story telling.
    Do you encode the whole story with it, or just chart some entangled situations?

    I'll list up all tutos and resources up the thread. When we have enough of them, maybe we can start
    a special thread for them in the Tips and Tricks section of conceptart, what do you think?

    In the wake of ashess I visited all member threads I didn't know this morning, I encourage everybody to do so
    and leave constructive crits about their storyboards whenever possible, this is the primary purpose of the Ring

    I just had an idea that may either be completely idiotic or completely genius.

    You see, for the last three years, I've been taking a line of study that focuses on film, photography and so on. I could probably dig up some notes from our online class-system that may relate to this and translate them into english.
    There's a whole lot on composition, and I know that can come to good use around here.

    I'll see what I can find.

    That would be ace, iambanana!
    If you feel like it, create the resource thread in the Tips and Tricks section, I'll add the link at the top of the ring thread.

    Question storyboarding critique needed

    Hi,
    I'm a new member. I am a freelance artist who among other things has done a very limited amount of storyboarding. My most recent project was to provide samples to an independent film company that does straight-to-dvd movies.
    The script/screenplay I was given did not contain much information...Nothing in terms of shots, camera movement, or lighting. The scene descriptions, if they existed at all were sparse.
    Anyways, I submitted 8 boards and was rejected. The reason they initially gave was they really could not follow my boards.
    What I want is some constructive criticism that will help me to develop stronger visual communication skills, in the future. I want to know if the boards are truly that hard to follow (I sketched each scene in order, as it was presented in the script), and what I can do to make them flow better, given the content of the script (included on the storyboard forms).
    I know in terms of the quality of the art itself, it is rough. The process I use to minimize time spent is to create fairly detailed thumbnail sketches, scan them into the computer, scale them up to fit maybe four on a standard A4 sheet, and trace them with a light-table, cleaning them up (and adding detail) as I go along. For a more finished piece I might repeat this process a couple more times, until I am satisfied with the results.
    Deadlines and scheduling are not kind to us in the creative fields, however, and that being said time didn't permit me to refine much of anything.
    so I know they are rough, sketchy and lacking in background (most of them) and detail, but the main purpose was to provide key scenes and establish some idea of where this thing was headed, in terms of direction.
    Any criticisms along these lines would be much appreciated. I'm mainly looking for ideas on how to make it flow better.
    Thanks for everyone's time...from the newbie

    P.S.:
    I do apologize for the language/content contained in the storyboards. I did not write the script, and only included it for scene description and information.
