EDIT: Argh! Thanks for the DD! Totally didn't expect that. Ha ha! Also, I'll get around to answering some comments over the next couple days here. Answering them all is like a whole other job. But a very rewarding one. XD lol Thanks to everyone for having a look!
Here is the beginning of a several part excerpt of a sequence I worked on for Ed, Edd n Eddy.
DOWNLOAD RECOMMENDED for these--they're big and full of little details.
The nature of storyboarding is a collaborative one. There is a first pass, a second pass... sometimes a 13th pass! And its possible that many hands can touch the board as it goes. As such, its hard to always credit where credit is due.
Scott Underwood, Jim Miller and I all contributed ideas to this sequence at the so-called 'thumbnail stage'. This is how we refer to a smaller, looser version where we plan out the shots and gags. Its the cleanup phase most often where we get to make meaningful acting decisions and of course expressions. Those were my specialty at the time (some say they still are) so this is where I really got to shine. 90-95% of the drawings shown here are mine. Because I've had such a strong overall influence through drawing and thumbing in this sequence I feel comfortable displaying it as somewhat my own.
As my friends know, I was very emotionally attached to this episode and most of all to this sequence and that in the botanical room after the commercial break.
Again, special thanks goes to both Scott Underwood and Jim Miller for their work on A Fistfull of Ed and for being wonderful mentors to me at AKA.
