week #2

Storyboard course week 2 from Sherm Cohen.

After feedback. Not sure about the first and six panel. I know it's best not to show characters their back. And in the six panel I don't know if it's getting confusing.

homework week 3

It was all about acting, so I made all these doodles. After I got feedback from Sherm I made these new doodles (under). Im trying to get more fluid drawings. Strong line of action and a strong and clear silhouette.

storyboard course lesson #1

Im doing a 10 week course from Sherm Cohen. Known from making storyboards for Ren and Stimpy, Hey Arnlod, Spongebob and many more. You really should check out his blog if you didn't do that before, it's really awesome. It's a real honor to be in this course and Im trying to learn as much as possible. These drawings are from week 1. It was about what to show and not so much about drawing a final storyboard.

After this I got feedback from Sherm and wanted to do something with it. So I made this version. Still a bit rough but more finished then the first one, there are still things I want to change about (at the end I want to make a new version of this one and want to make it better). But everything in small steps. Besides that I want to learn how to draw more appealing in photoshop, I still don't like how my drawings/doodles turn out in photoshop compared with my pencil drawings.

At the moment Im practising drawing the characters. These are just a few and are gonna post some more soon. It's a really good way for me to learn how to draw poses. There's still something I don't like about my poses, especially from the alien. But I can't nail it what is bothering me about them.

I still prefer drawing on paper instead of drawing in photoshop. But it's a great way to doodle and work on layers. It works really quick.

Recently I didn't post allot of studies, like I always did. But I still making them. I still take allot of drawings from John K's blog and study them. Evry day I try to do a couple, to warm up or to finish a day. It only takes a bit too much time to scan them all in, like I used to do. But it's still important to study.
At the same time I do practicing to make my own original drawings, but I'm not a writer and I find it hard to come up with own ideas. I do learn allot from the storyboard course I'm following. I hope I will post some ideas for some own characters soon.
