Turns out that this evening I just wanted to draw a demon lady power posing in her undies.
That and watch Castle.
Just a big old glut of various doodles, some going back to the summer. Studies, nonsense, weird, boring, scribbly, polished - it's all there!
Lately I've been following the Kris Pearn storyboard lessons on Schoolism. I love learning more about the craft and seeing the different approaches and methods different artists use!
These are from Week 2 - the task was to take a 3 - 5 minute sequence from a film and study it, thinking about how I responded emotionally to it and working out how the film maker uses the camera "to create emotional context for the audience."
I had been watching The Lord of the Rings, so I chose "The Sacrifice of Faramir" sequence from RotK.
One of the reasons I chose it was because there was a lot of movement - more movement than I've ever storyboarded myself, and it's usually good to take yourself out your comfort zone (or so I hear!) It's a good exercise - it took a while, but it was really satisfying to see it all drawn out (even if a lot of the drawings are quite crude. I really didn't have the patience to draw all the horses!).
I realise I may have scribbled the wrong terms for camera moves down ... I hope I'm getting better, but I used to get a bit confused with the different terms (like the difference between a dolly shot and a zoom, for example). Every day's a school day!
