This is a fun, engaging course that will teach you how to draw for Animation Storyboards.
First, you’ll learn how to draw characters – how to draw good expressions and poses
From there, you’ll learn the best approaches to drawing suggested backgrounds for your boards – from rough blocking, to adding perspective, and how to draw depth and space in your panels.
You’ll also learn the best practices for story artists – these are the top directors’ tips and I’ll share them with you so that you know what is expected of professional story artists.
I’ll also share with you some sample storyboards of other students in the course series – this is going to be an amazing opportunity for you to not only see diverse examples of different styles of drawing; but importantly, to see how fellow students are approaching their assigments, and working.
There is an opportunity in this course to complete assignments and exercises for each of the topics covered; plus at the end, the class project for this course is to take a page of script and storyboard it out entirely yourself. I’m going to give this project to you as though you were working for a studio – so you’ll get model sheets and layouts, as well as the script and then it’s over to you to put everything that we’ve covered in the course into practice.
