Storyboard Colors

OK, here we go. As promised, here are a few of the storyboards I showed off the other day but now in eye-popping full color!

Again, I did all of these really quickly. From contact by the client and initial explanations of each board to finish was probably less than thirty hours. But, what is nice about doing stuff that quickly is almost all self doubt and second thoughts go right out the window and you're just drawing and coloring as quickly as you can.

It's exhausting but very satisfying at the same time to get things done so quickly. When you lay your head down to sleep it's a very calming sleep and I love it.

Here are a few of the boards I thought turned out particularly well in both drawing and color. I look at stuff like this and think I'm getting better at being fast and good. As I read somewhere long ago, first you get good, then you get fast, then you get good and fast. I think I'm almost in the third category. Maybe not quite yet but I'm getting there.

And I think these are perfectly fine to put in front of a potential client and show off what kind of concept you have for their ad campaign. I just hope the client and their potential client liked them.

And here is one of my favorite sequences from the whole job. Art wise it's not the most complicated but I love the panel to panel transitions as the kid, obviously not scared by the zombie, prompts the monster into fist bumping him. I was only supposed to do a panel or two for this sequence but I couldn't help dragging it out a bit and having some fun.

Remember that thing I said in an earlier post about working too hard?


Have a great day.

These storyboards are great, are they for an animation or something? Love that Zombie!

These boards were for a big name gum commercial. Most of the stuff I do like this is so the ad agency can pitch their ideas to potential clients. If it does ever get to the point where it becomes a full commercial it will probably be live action.

But, thanks, I like that zombie quite a bit myself.
