Tuesday Tips SUPER WEEK - FeetI don’t often have to draw bare feet, unless I’m doing Life Drawing. When storyboarding, the focus is generally not on the feet. They also are usually covered (shoes, socks), or just not shown on screen that much. Nonetheless, it’s important to understand their functionality and general appeal. Keep details to a minimum, unless the character uses its bare feet to grasp things or do things with them most humans don’t. The best example of pushing feet to an extreme degree of functionality would be Disney’s Tarzan (one of my all time favorite). Other than that, don’t draw too much attention to them, but find appeal in its shapes.Norm

Here’s a short storyboard exercise from this creeper I saw from the elevator this morning.  When I rough my storyboards I try to keep them about this clean.  Combining the looseness and clarity of gesture, while being selective about the most important information to draw your eye is key to making rough-boards readable and also saving time for cleanup later.  Keep in mind, it takes a LOT of drawing/understanding to break things down simply like this — so don’t be lazy and learn a lot about drawing first kids!!
Here’s an essay by Rad which better explains this kind of drawing: http://radhowto.blogspot.com/2010/01/drawing-for-storyboards.html
