May Proko Challenge - Storytelling with Moderndayjames

Lesson by
Stan Prokopenko

Show off your storytelling skills! 


Visual mediums provide tons of opportunities to tell rich, dynamic stories. This month, Moderndayjames is here to bring the Proko community a challenge that will encourage you to tap into your storytelling prowess as you see fit! Take either a pre-existing story to reimagine, or a new one of your own creation, write up a brief summary for your own use and then create a small comic, storyboard, or animation. James will judge entries based on clarity of story, anatomy, stylization, use of composition and cinematic language. Entries will also be judged more on their ability to convey the plot rather than sheer aesthetics. 

Medium: Any medium, traditional and digital, 2D and 3D is allowed.

Sponsored by Wacom, Sentient Academy,  Vision X Live Conference,  Canvy and Proko.

Reimagining of scenes from Frank Herbert's Dune by Moderndayjames.
