Tuesday Tip - Beat Boards / Storyboards
It can be a daunting task to just “start storyboarding”. Because there’s so many things to think about when storyboarding, we all need a roadmap to know where we are going. Beat boards are not even the first step to creating a story, but it’s often the clearest way to pitch an early concept to someone. It’s also very useful to plan out the larger beats of a large physical sequence (action, chase, etc.). This way, you don’t have to go on a limb for a week or two and have to redo it all if it doesn’t work. They’re sort of like your Key Poses in animation, but put on a story scale. Does that make sense? Message me if you have any questions or suggestions about future posts.
Oh my god this is AWESOME can you believe I didn’t actually know the clear difference until now? This blog is also great, definitely added to my list of follows, go check it out! (:

Tuesday Tips — Painting a shiny object
the steps are:
1. matte base object
2. add ceiling reflection
yes, it is that simple. Throughout the years, I learn to edit. It’s unnecessary to paint or render every single grain of hair and detail. It’s about communicating the idea across. A lot of it is about believability. I find this technique works for me. And as always, it is a good idea to practice it on a simple basic primitives. (I know, I know, it’s not the most exciting thing). But you will be surprise on how fast you can paint when you master your basic shapes.
Attached are gif I made to show you my steps on a sphere, and one of my shoe illustration I painted using the same technique.
Some page excerpts of a Guardians comic I had to put on hiatus.
It was building up to be a monster of a story, getting close to the page count of Water Tribe. I had half roughed out and a good chunk cleaned up when I noticed some problems with the story and needed to step back. I do know how to fix it, the problem is time. I don’t know if I’ll ever finish it.
I still want to finish the North story I had started, possibly do a Jack one. I haven’t had the time due to day time work and even more comic stuff!
I just pulled out a few random panel excerpts, cleaned up pages and some rough ones from the folder.
Rufftoon’s roughs look better than my clean ups :)
Agreed, where do you get your inking skills?? Either way I’d love to see this whole story finished, I’m really excited to read a story with Jack in it!
I saw a hot lady at a grocery store, kinda trying to remember what she looked like
Black people are a small minority in Finland and every time you see one chances are they’re really well dressed
Discovered some old paintings from the holidays. Plus some new ones from a recent trip to Spain.
This is when you realize how many songs this movie has O.O
I think I don’t have an excuse, I just wanted to draw these ‘-‘
Uptown Girl has been stuck in my head for the past week for several reasons, so this happened.
I meant to add Jack and Hiccup singing into spanners in the bg too but I have commissions to finish, sooo…
