Storybeats, Boards, Leica... The Whole Thing!

Here's my entire storyboarding project for the second half of first semester.  This story went through lots of revisions along the way.  Several different people came up with fun ideas for this story to help it along, which is how I found out that storyboarding really is a group effort.  Had it not been for different people's input, I would have settled for simple ideas much more easily instead of trying to come up with more creative/fun ways of telling the story.  Anyway, I'm really starting to ramble, so here's the whole process:

Character Lineup

Story Beats


And finally, the leica reel

I made a few final revisions for the leica reel.  I also added in a gradient sky in each of the panels in order for the white army to read a little more clearly, but it also helped to establish a more overall mood.  I would have loved to add in even a few more fights for the pawn to avoid, but I simply didn't have the time.  Alright, that's all I have for now, hope you enjoy!
