    Watching the gnomon vid where he does those is actually quite helpful.

    I forget which director it was, maybe Kubrick or something, but he had the absolute ugliest thumbnail drawings. It was wobbly and crappy, but the composition was defined and that's all he needed to communicate the visual he was trying to achieve. Maybe it wasn't Kubrick, but he's awesome so I'm just going to say that it was him.
    Scorsese? His storyboards are atrocious.
    Though thumbnails for an illustration are a little different than storyboards for a movie.
    I don't think it's really necessary to have accurately drawn storyboards if you have a D.O.P. you know how to communicate with, and you have the shots in your head. A lot of people's story boards are block people and a bunch of shapes, pretty much like indecipherable hieroglyphics.

    anyways, this is an awesome idea. like how it's going.

    Ok, I am completely burnt out now. 15 is all I could muster. :(

    I'll post the next assignment tomorrow, I want it to be a good one. Maybe I could get some suggestions? I'm leaning towards character silhouettes.

    This was tough.

    edit: maybe all a tad large

    They're larger here than they are IRL. They're about 1.5" tall and 2.5" wide.

    Well I meant, in perspective to the people, everythings very very ant size people, even the sewers are ant size people, thats a lot of poop

    The assignment was for large-scale interiors.

    The sewer one could be a view from one of the main lines...large overpopulated futuristic cities have lots of poopers, Loom.

    oooooooooh wait dont mind me, I didn't even catch that part in the title, a durrrrrrr.

    If you're having trouble with ideas what about using something like Sketchup/maya/3ds to build primitives and set a camera angle and then drawing environments from that?

    Obviously you could also draw them, but maybe doing it like that would add some constraints which might make the idea makin part of your brain kick in.

    I was actually thinking I could do exactly that. :) Next time I do thumbs, I'll try that out.

    it works awesome and is a method a lot of artist use. Also allows for perfect perspective and easy to get those weird perspectives correct like fisheyeing a scene.

    Looks like some sort of Town Crier to me. I like it. Though the horned helm makes him look a bit like a battle type dude when the rest of him looks rather domesticated.

    Maybe he's a town crier with dreams of being a great hero.

    I've been really sick! D:

    I've done some crappy thumbs, I will post them and draw up my sketch tomorrow. I also lost my password to my ftp so I don't know what to upload everything with.

    Sorry to kill this thread, but I'm going to try and bring it back to life!
