The Storyboard is "Done"

I drew the final storyboard yesterday.

This doesn't mean the storyboard is finalized. It feels off-kilter; too many shots to communicate some things, and too few for others. I plan to spread out all the drawings, then look through the flow.

But this is a milestone. Many animations don't even get this far. And I feel good, like I've accomplished something. As I should.

So, next I need to analyze. Criticism gets a bad rap in creative circles--deservedly--but criticism can be constructive. Sometimes you need to take something apart so you can rebuild it into something better.

And flow is a complicated aspect of storytelling, but that's for another post. For now, yay! I finished the storyboard! Time to celebrate.
