when you read through a storyboard, you look for scenes that use the same angle and same camera distance
when you find them, you try to design a layout that can use the same "setup" for all the scenes
In other words, one master Background that all the action can take place in
That means you have to plan how much space you need around the characters in order to be able to draw all the most extreme poses
Like all these images can use 1 setup:
This is a "long shot" That means the camera is far away enough to show the whole bodies of the characters.
so you have to plan all the drawings to work on the same background, and the sixes of the characters have to make sense from pose to pose
if they are on the bed they are smaller
if they are on the floor in the foreground they are bigger
if there are consecutive poses within a scene, the poses have to "flip" between each other
This lesson is to draw all these poses, so they use the same background, and that the consecutive poses flip.
You also of course have to remember everything from previous lessons - like negative space, style, not toning down the poses etc.
Questions?I went through all the scenes in the last setup and blocked out the spacing for all the poses and the background.
I haven't commited to any finished detailed drawings yet, because I wanted to make sure all the actions would fit into the scenes.
I had to push and pull shapes around to get the best possible positions.
all these poses have to register to the same BG as in the first pose.
The next step would be to start tightening up the drawings to make them look good.
