Production Blog IV: Storyboarding II

Back on track with the new episode, but the Storyboarding is going a little slower on this episode as it's a little more complicated than usual. At the moment the board is about half done, but probably rougher than normal, which might slow things up when I go to clean up the poses in animation.

Below is me drawing one of the poses for the current board. I draw these poses quite rough and quick, and one like this I might actually stick to quite closely when I clean it up.

I used your approach to storyboarding when doing a little 36 seconds sequence of a dancing baby. But I found out that when cleaning it, one practically has to do it all over again; like tracing it. I found it a bit time consuming. Did I do it correctly? And, how do you keep your line thickness consistent when zooming in and out at the time of drawing using the brush tool?

Yeah, there is a bit of redoing when cleaning up, but that's what it's all about - you can't really do your best stuff straight up, you need to get down a rough version first. As for line thickness, I just change pen sizes and do it manually - although another programme I am getting into now, Toon Boom Solo, always has the same line regardless of zooming in or out.

Heheh, just when I'm getting the hang of flash, everyone's switching to TB. Thanks for the answer and keep up the great work. I truly think you and Phillips are the most influential web animators of our time.
