Been quite a long time since last time, hasn't it? Anyways, we're up and going on our latest project - Storyboarding. A group project.

I'm grouped with CBeYe and Fused-Designs, and as we were assigned the groups, we were to choose one of our stories, and work on it to a storyboard, which is the task we're currently at.

We went with *Gustav's (Fuse)* story. 

We split the story in three, to draw each our share. At least on sketch-level.
I haven't spoken to Fuse since we split the text, since he wasn't there on wednesday, and disappeared before I got a hold of him on Thursday, but at least I've spoken quite a lot with Chris (CBeYe).
Chris isn't to happy about drawing (though he still did his share), and since camera and positions and such isn't my strongest side, we agreed that I "refine" his drawings, and he eventually help me with the camera positions and stuff :3

And that takes me over to my current task. I seriously can't draw anything, at least not a storyboard (several pictures of the same characters in different positions and poses) without a decent model sheet. So I looked a bit around for refrence. 

The Policeman is my biggest challenge, since I don't usually do a lot of big, bulky, muscly men. Therefor I looked at the first that came to my mind: Superman. And other superheroes, such as Batman, and just random "Superheroes" I tripped over in Google Images.
Even though Fuse mentioned in his post that he pictured the policeman as  somewhat similar to Mr. Incredible, I had problems working with that. So I decided to do my own character designs for the storyboard. 

Oh, and I just couldn't help myself - I just HAD to give him bunny slippers ^^

As for the Thief, I just really started sketching some stick figure with a mask over his head. I liked the style of which he turned out, and figured it was something I wanted to work with. When Chris saw my storyboard sketches, he said he really liked that style too, and that made for Point OF No Return. 
We all had this picture of the Thief being skinny, dressed in black, and obviously rather bendy and atlethic. And since I wanted some ref to work with, who better to be used as a (role) model than the one and only - Your friendly neighbourhood SPIDERMAN!!! <3
Combined with the first "visuals" from my early storyboard sketches...
...that pretty much settles it for our Thief:

As you can see, he's completely black, aside from his hood/mask-thingie, which I decided to leave grey, to enable for expressions (see storyboard-attempt-visuals)
...His pose reminds me of Tim Burton's "9" :3

So now I just have to finish about 2/3 of the storyboard till monday, and we're all good ^^
