Some comparisons between my boards and final show. In case you ever wondered what it is I do. Things get carried over pretty accurately in animation so it’s super important that the storyboards are clean clear and have all the backgrounds in place (my apologies to Tony, our art director)
I'm writing a fantasy story set in the 6th century in various places around the world, including the middle east. I'm concerned about how to represent the pre-islamic world without coming off as disrespectful or islamophobic. For example, the Kaaba being used to house idols. It's historically accurate, but I feel reluctant to depict it in that way, as it might be disrespectful. Is this a legitimate concern? What other pitfalls should I be aware of in depicting this setting?
