Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to participate in this challenge at the specified time. When I saw today that the time of the challenge is coming to an end, I said that I have to work on at least one storyboard page to play a role in this challenge. In the next challenge, however, I will do a complete job The desired text is in the storyboard.

Hi everyone! This is my submission for the Storytelling Challenge. It is a 7-page short story titled, "APE." I am planning on lettering it, but for now I wanted to submit it without any words since this challenge is about storytelling using art. Each page is done with a black Fudenosuke brush pen on 9x12 bristol board. For a bit of context, the story is about a gorilla who is essentially a hitman (or hit-ape, if you will), and has been assigned to take out two men who have been perpetually robbing a trade route in the desert. I will probably expand it at some point, so think of this as the opening scene.

heyo! Well I made this sequence inspired by an episode of Love death and robots, I really would have liked to be able to refine it better and add more frames but I was very short of time hehe, I hope you like it:)

Hi everyone! Your works are great! I really liked this challenge. Unfortunately, I was very busy this month and only took 2 days for my storyboard. This is just a sketch of the first page of three or four. I had no idea for a script for a long time, so I decided to present the cinematic version of The Lord of the Rings. This is the scene where Boromir sacrifices his life. I'm sorry for the unfinished version.

This is a story about the hunted and the prey. It was a fun project. I learned a lot and that’s really what is all about.

Hey James, Stan, and team! I wrote a pilot last July, and began to build the first scene's environment and storyboards in Blender on April 20th, so I was PSYCHED to see this prompt for a May deadline. It was the perfect motivation! I'm still figuring out the process for this whole 2D/3D storyboarding, so I actually spent the last few days cleaning up frames in Fresco, only to find it was incredibly time consuming to place them back into the Blender project, and ultimately turning to Premiere ... with a hundred more problems as the sketches jump around the frame! Lessons have been learned!! Anyway, I'm happy with how much I was able to learn and build for this. I'm going to continue to refine the sequence, and another THANK YOU so much for the deadline. James, it's great to see you partnering with Stan, you two do some fantastic work and teachings. Animatic!! (2 minutes) https://youtu.be/6fYb_p7MU-I

Here are my attempts at the example in the video after being recommended by someone who gave me feedback. I know this post isn't listed as "Asked For Help", but I would love to receive feedback.

2021/9/21. Hello everyone. This is a personal interpretation of Elsa from the Disney movie, FROZEN. Before presenting the final version to my illustration course teacher, I would like to hear some of your opinions and possibly some advice on how to improve it. In particular I would like to increase the sense of depth of the background and three-dimensionality of Elsa (Elsa has a very fair complexion and I would not want to exaggerate with the shadows since the light of the ballroom is very strong and diffused). Also I would like to add a halo of brightness to the chandeliers. If you have any useful ideas please post them below. I also add some of the reference pics I used. Thanks for your valuable contribution.

Lovely soft shading, her face is gorgeous and the dress is stunning. Torso looks fantastic. Love love love love love love love. When it comes to adding depth, that could be illustrated with a bit more perspective. In your two references (the celebrity, and Cinderella) you'll see that all of the guests heads are close to the horizon line. If you have Elsa on a different layer from the background, it might be worth bringing them up to match her head. Granted their heads would be this low if the camera was super low, but that might require redrawing Elsa in a low angle. SO if you're looking to add depth, you could add a couple guests in the midground. Or you could add some perspective lines on the floor. A lot of masters showed off their perspective with checkerboard floors for this reason! You're also working with a warm subject on a warm background, it might be worth playing with some subtle cool tones to really highlight the warmth of Elsa. Anyway, I'm going to attach an image that shows the head perspective trick, and I hate to point you away from Proko but I don't think Stan (or a mentor) has created a video covering this yet. PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong. To give credit where it is due, this is the thumbnail from a clip by Circle Line Art Studio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIBgJgBvga8

Could you talk about the production pipeline for Loving Vincent? That movie is incredible! How did you all manage to make a film ENTIRELY out of paint?

This is fantastic! Awesome work. You've added 3D forms to the tail which give a stronger sense of the form. If you do more insects, it might be worth incorporating more of those forms into the thorax and head and legs. Especially if you can add cross-contour lines in those shapes! It's okay to lose details!

Hey folks! I'm working on some lip studies and referencing Stan's lip video in the portraiture class. It's a lovely breakdown for neutral lips, but he mentions that someday, he'll make a video for more advanced lips smiling and laughing and smirking. I think this is still in the works, so does anybody know of a good reference for how facial muscles create expressions, and how to illustrate these with their new and unexpected plane changes?
