Now I am at the phase where I just want to visualize the story.
I don't want to think too hard about the logistics yet.
First I go look at images that inspire that I am going to draw. This of course can be dangerous as research can easily turn into another form of procrastination. So I try and only look at images a bit then get onto drawing. AND limit my researches to only what i need for this particular project.
A simple list of the elements I will limit myself to:
Farm, farmhouse, fox, crow, rural landscapes.
I will open a couple tabs with the different queries and keep them on hand to just look through while I am boarding.
So in the case of this boarding project these are all opened in tabs:
I Really like having these images sites open as it helps me visualize and keep inspired as I work.
So Here I have put my first ROUGH thumb-nailing pass.
Now what I was trying to do with this is just getting something down. Even though I already thought of better shots and things I wanted to add I just wanted to finish this step so I don't get caught up in editing before I have a step finished.
The only editing I've done to these thumbs is to put them in order as my first first pass was very random. I just start getting images down. Then after I put them in order I numbered the scenes and put the action and dial in.
