Tuesday Tips SUPER WEEK - Push it!
Clarity is probably the most important thing to think about at all time when boarding. Pushing your poses to an undeniable level of clarity will improve the clarity of the storytelling in general. Don’t leave space for uncertainty in posing out your characters. Your audience will be more engaged and entertained by the sequence.
This is the last post for the Super Week. I hope you enjoyed it. Back on the regular schedule next week (Every Tuesday).
What a great series. Thanks for posting these!
XII - THE HANGED MAN: YOUNG CECIL
“ It’s associated withfor the sake of enlightenment, , paradoxes, and juxtaposition between heaven and earth.”
Cassette was such a fantastic episode, I couldn’t help but find a place for it in the deck. In it we see that Cecil becoming an intern was a key step to growing up, to realizing more about the world, but at a cost that is not quite explained.
“ I think, therefore I soon won’t be.” - Young Cecil Palmer, Ep. 33, “Casette”
I did a light key for this piece, and I feel like the improvement in the lighting quality really shows! I was told I needed to work on making sure my shadows were more natural, so that was a focus of the piece this time. I also needed a lot of help making sure the pose was right. I liked doing the cracks, since they focus the eye toward the cassette and his intern badge.
Remember the 90s? Cecil doesn’t! I did a lot of Googling of 90’s fashion; thank god grunge was in so folks liked to dress in simple t-shirts and jeans, or else I would have had a much harder time. Also the cassette recorder there is a Walkman.
