Sorry, I’ve been neglecting my blog. I was busy with commissions for the last few days. I wanted to do some concept art for Alex and Cruz. A comic my friend and I are working on.We are shifting from ‘anthro’ animals to ‘normal’ ones. My friend Cruz needed a head shot of his character for the comic. I thought I would do a bust for each. Although the final designs will not be as details as this. I enjoy painting details, It’s very therapeutic. Currently Alex is a white dragon, but I have been on the fence about making him a golden dragon. For both characters, I used reference images of my friends and my own face to attempt to inject as much of our personalities into the characters . the eyes will probably be bigger in the final designs.
This was my storyboard assignment. The goal of the assignment was to tell the story with no dialog. Pictures only. And I was limited to ONLY 10 PANELS! The story is somewhat based on a Welsh fairy tale with a twist. I am curious how you interpret this storyboard /comic. If you have the time, tell me what you think it the narrative is. :). I noticed there is a fine line between sequential art and storyboarding. Using a fixed picture frame and seeing the picture frame as the eye of the camera takes away the complexity of panel layout and design and helps me just worry about what is important… The narrative. I will be performing a test run of ‘storyboarding’ my Alexis Hawkenstone story. Since I am such messy writer. The visual aspect of storyboarding/comics might be a better fit for my story.
