The art of Thornwolf
[Art - Professional] Storyboards
I got approached the other day with a maaaaaaybe offer involving storyboarding. I'm not getting my hopes up, but the last time I boarded anything was when I was 17. I'm 22 now to give you an idea :P Anyways I needed some samples and I needed them FAST, so I spent about 2 hours (probably less, I had lunch somewhere in between) boarding the opening scene of Gangs of New York. Bear in mind, these were quick and dirty to show speed, so they're not hyper detailed or anything, but yes, I do occasionally do storyboards!

Linked because livejournal sucks and crops the right half of my images if it doesn't fit within their "frame".

Actually, on my comp the images just spilled over the frame. I wonder why it does that? Hmmm...

Anyways, like I said before, these are awesomes. I hope they'll pick you up on this. :)

These look excellent. I know a guy who does pro storyboarding (the Saw movies among others..shudder) and you're work looks absolutely up on par with his.

really? Wow. Thank you! :D

I really don't know how I compare to others personally. This was my second try with a 4-5 year lapse in between D:

Yours look more polished than some pro work I've seen. Some artists work very, very loosly and it works out fine. Others are tighter. I suspect it will depend on the personal taste of your client as to which end of the spectrum he's on. But seriously, these look really good and certainly pro quality. I think the client will be pretty happy:) Good luck!

I have like..a million of em in my icons. Feel free to gank!

Well... I don't USUALLY gank... but i think I might.

I've got the song, as well as, like, every punk/rock/techno/etc. cover made of it. It's so good that not even bad cover bands can ruin it :D

Oh hell I'm a sucker for covers of that song. I don't like MxPx's version though but Reel Big Fish's was totally boss.

And that song was actually what got me into storyboarding in the first place even though its rotoscope. I love the lines used in the sketchiness of it all. Hurh!

Lawl. That's ironic, because i kinda like MXPX's version. Although, granted, I kinda like MXPX :D

Rotoscope FTW!!

you already know my opinion ... ;D
... but I would like to say again that this storyboard is absolutely fantastic!

It's a perfectly done work! =D

Wow, those're pretty good for not storyboarding since...a while. XD (Don't laugh because I can't count! D: Actually, you can laugh as much as you want.)

I haven't seen "Gangs" yet. Is it good?
