EDIT: Argh! Thanks for the DD! Totally didn't expect that. Ha ha! Also, I'll get around to answering some comments over the next couple days here. Answering them all is like a whole other job. But a very rewarding one. XD lol Thanks to everyone for having a look!
Here is the beginning of a several part excerpt of a sequence I worked on for Ed, Edd n Eddy.
DOWNLOAD RECOMMENDED for these--they're big and full of little details.
The nature of storyboarding is a collaborative one. There is a first pass, a second pass... sometimes a 13th pass! And its possible that many hands can touch the board as it goes. As such, its hard to always credit where credit is due.
Scott Underwood, Jim Miller and I all contributed ideas to this sequence at the so-called 'thumbnail stage'. This is how we refer to a smaller, looser version where we plan out the shots and gags. Its the cleanup phase most often where we get to make meaningful acting decisions and of course expressions. Those were my specialty at the time (some say they still are) so this is where I really got to shine. 90-95% of the drawings shown here are mine. Because I've had such a strong overall influence through drawing and thumbing in this sequence I feel comfortable displaying it as somewhat my own.
As my friends know, I was very emotionally attached to this episode and most of all to this sequence and that in the botanical room after the commercial break.
Again, special thanks goes to both Scott Underwood and Jim Miller for their work on A Fistfull of Ed and for being wonderful mentors to me at AKA.
My god,Ed Edd n Eddy story board are so complex compare to what I see in most cartoons. But still it comes out wonderful at the end,so it's really worth it <3 I wish one day I could be able to do something like this,though I highly doubt it~
I didn't know much, if anything about boarding when I first started. My knack for acting I think is the only reason they kept me around. Knowing what kind of shots to use and when to cut took me years of on-the-job practice to get a confident grasp of. These things still don't come *perfectly* natural to me. XD
All I'm saying is, if you're willing to work hard at it, you're probably capable of doing it.
Oh really? So you voiced on of the character's to? (If that's what you meant by acting) And actually I've worked on a story board recently for an EEnE Christmas project I'm working on. It was a bitfun yet alot of work to do hehe :}
Oh no, no.. By "acting" I mean physical acting. Like the way a character gesticulates or reacts to things. Usually a script or outline will contain very little in the description of what the character is physically doing in a scene (depending on the show). Often when a character hugs someone or performs a specific gesture, that's invented by the storyboard artist. It can be akin to choreography at times.
Ahh~,so professional! ♥ It must of been really great to be able to work with them and CartoonNetwork It's actually my dream goal,but sadly I have no clue how to even start since I have no idea how to even get into CartoonNetwork.
Aw man, this is so exciting to see! Thank you for posting these. This episode was seriously one of my favorites out of the whole series, ha ha. You really do have a way with depicting emotions in their fullest intensities, it's been really inspiring to me over the the years I've been following your work on here.
You know, this reminds me of something I've been wondering about for awhile . . .If you don't mind me asking, in the EEnE movie, who boarded that one scene where Edd and Eddy have a fight after the whole quicksand incident? Were you involved with that?
