It’s crucial to find ways to draw characters clearly and fast when storyboarding. Line mileage alone can become an impossible mountain to climb if you don’t simplify the way you draw characters. Leave all details aside and find the essence of a character. Shorthands are the gesture drawings of storyboarding. Specific characters have specific attributes that make them stand out. Sometimes it’s just the way they stand. Sometimes their hairstyle is unconventional. Find what’s key about a character and get rid of what’s common.
Hey everyone! A while ago I was commissioned to do some guest artist cover illustrations for a new comic called Veiled & Vile created by Sam Lenn.
The comic covers the story explores the lives of several incarcerated female super villains that have to work together to survive as well as escape. Throughout the comics it will go in depth about the characters’ complex pasts of super villainy as they try to break out.
