‘STAR VS. THE FORCES OF EVIL’ SPOILER ALERT! These are untimed boards from the end battle of “Starcrushed,” the season 2 finale of “Star Vs. the Forces of Evil.” There were story points I had to hit, but I still got to invent a lot of what happens. I had the honor of boarding alongside the talented Evon Freeman and Gina Gress for this episode.
Hey art guys, here’s a tip: Reverse storyboarding.
Watch a movie that you really like the art or composition of, and whenever the camera angle, viewpoint, or characters actions/interactions change noticeably, pause the movie and draw a little sketch of what you see. It doesn’t have to be gorgeous. This is just for you. Get down the layout of the composition, the placement and gestures of characters, or the lighting or color that is used to make that particular moment in time express that particular moment in the story.
You don’t have to pay anyone to teach you to do this. You are paying yourself forward. Your future art self will thank you for taking the time now to study masterfully created compositions, gestures, light/shadow, and settings/scenery. Think of how much your own compositions, gestures, use of light and shadow, and settings and scenery will improve!
This started out as a simple idea: I wanted to portray a possible season 3 scenario where a battle (with Toffee?) just took place, Marco is on Mewni with Star and lately he’s been realizing why his heart always jumps out of his chest when he sees Star. Realizing this was one thing - actually confessing is a whole ‘nother deal … (yes, he already broke up with Jackie)
This is a purely fanmade storyboard by me. I put a lot of effort, time and dedication into this though, so I would love, love, love if you guys share this so maybe, just maybe, @arythusa, @hug-bees or any other member of the Star vs the Forces of Evil crew could see this. It would mean the world to me.
Thanks for reading and enjoy this piece of shameless Starco fluff!
Storyboards of the Summons from the Kingdom Hearts video-game: Bambi, Mushi, Simba, Tinker Bell and Genie!- Dedicating this to my girlfriend nefowls for 2 years of making each other happy !^_^18/11 I LUV YA!
Here are some panels from the section that I storyboarded from the Ducktales pilot movie. It’s funny going back to the FIRST board I did and seeing how different I draw things now. (I used to draw everyone so lanky!)
I’m so proud to have worked on this. Working with John Aoshima and Matt Humphreys was a joy and they pushed me every episode to be a better board artist. Also, Dana Terrace’s team SLAYED their episode. Proud to have worked with them.
