X Fools Storyboard

This is a storyboard I produced late last year in preparation of an X Fools animation I've been preparing for and am currently overlooking character designs. Because I'm making it by myself, I only needed to write out the dialogue with the boards as the one reference to the audio.

For those who aren't familiar with the X Fools, it was an Australian-produced radio show spoof of The X Files which they syndicated across the UK which I used to listen to and transcribed into a comic. The characters are Agent Fat Smoulder; stupid and childish, Agent Donut Sulky; mardy and serious, and Assistant Director Skinhead; a brute homosexual masochistic transvestite. The scene begins at Stone Henge in Salsbury Plane at night, where they discover a mysterious time crack. Press ">" on this special audio player I made for you below to playback the audio that goes together with the storyboard...

Robot Scarecrow


Every time I ride to town on the bus, we pass these crop fields and I imagine a robot scarecrow waiting to dance there.

The Gong Sketch


I found this fantastic book in the library about Japanese graffiti art, which influenced the dragon sketch at the bottom right there.

The Fletcher Building


I studied in the Queens Building where they teach you Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at De Montfort. I was involved with this art project and thought I'd work better in the Fletcher Building where they teach you art, but got in a spot of trouble.

Me at 25


I was feeling down one night, so I took out my book and set myself a target which made me feel better.

Nearly 24 years old now and I've got one year left to turn my life around.

Minisketch Promo

Whenever I leave the house, I always take my mini sketchbook and pencil with me in case I get bored or have any ideas form in my head. Here are a few bits I scanned from my book, which has just about been filled up...



...not a big fan of football.


...If I was a Happy Tree Friend, I'd be Nutty. :p

...Hmm...Wonder if there's a patent pending for a rotating ice cream holder.

When I went to meet someone at Confetti who would take me on as a volunteer, he asked me what skills I had. I took out my mini sketch pad and drew this to prove I could draw...


...all I do is draw people shouting...



...shouting...


...AND MORE SHOUTING! :S

Flying Car 4 Scifer

A friend of mine by the name of Scifer wanted a flying car for his birthday, and I said I'd work on something for him...



I usually sketched and outlined on the same platform, but wondered if sketching and then doing everything else digitally would help me out better.


Take it from me, that you can't rely everything on photoshopping to get a piece out. You should try out materials and experiment.

Women

I got lent a copy of "How I Met Your Mother" on DVD and thought I'd try out a few sketches.


Wise Words #1

To draw without a purpose is "visual babble."


But if I asked a child what they were drawing, let's say some random green cow on a rainbow, if I asked him or her why they drew it, what if they replied "I dunno"?
