This semester I am taking ANM 372 Drawing for Features Storyboarding with Disney Story Artist Tamara Lusher-Stocker. I am chronicling my experience on the blog for myself and for those interested in learning more about storytelling. I highly recommend trying your hand at the assignments we were given. Happy boarding!
For our final assignment we were challenged to tell a story about the weather. Prior to coming to school, I had an idea about a group of characters who band together to find the missing princess of their realm. One of the characters, Echo, the future leader of the group, meets one of the other characters, a Hamadryad, when she is saved from a group of ruffians.
In order to have my much larger tale work for this class assignment, I changed the seasons so that I could draw the forest during a snowstorm (hence the weather part) and shortened the sequence so that I could finish in three weeks.
The result is Winter’s End, one of my most ambitious boards to date. Enjoy!
