Love it...so you just do these for practice? If so, that's really cool. Sometimes I do storyboards for local filmmakers, mostly horror & exploitation stuff (Have you heard of Revenge is Her Middle Name?), and my storyboards are similar, just very quickly rendered marker sketches.I have a portable dvd player at my desk with stuff playing while I work (Bad Taste is in there now), but I've never thought of just pausing certain scenes and doing sketches like you do, for fun & practice...I'm going to watch Deadbeat at Dawn later today & sketch a few scenes from that.
I do them as a warm up to loosen up a bit. I should pick shots that are more reliant on good composition, rather than iconic ones like the one that preceded it. I think I'll start focusing on black and white horror movies. I'm working on a sketchbook of this stuff as well as a sketchbook with a still from every X-Files episode.I think I saw the cover art for that movie on your blog? :)
Cool, just curious why you did them, not sure if you did storyboards on the side or whatnot. I'm more of an illustrator & concept artist, and I'm trying to build a portfolio of published stuff right now, but I love hearing what other people do to practice, etc...I didn't post any artwork for Revenge on my blog, the dvd cover art is for another film called Double Dose of Terror...made by some local filmmakers here in PGH, PA.
