Backgrounds and Boards

Here are two sample backgrounds in color, and some images pulled from the storyboard.

It's taken me a long time to work out all the kinks of my story, to have a distinct beginning, middle and end, and leave the viewer with the mood I intended. I was using the index card method of cutting, pasting and putting each shot in order, so it became very hands on and chaotic at times.

I have been working on layouts and backgrounds during the Olympics and find this to be the most enjoyable part.

The biggest challenge for me was the story, and its "logic." The best part is drawing all the scenes and seeing them in color.
Since I have a multitude of backgrounds, this means that there is limited animation to do in each scene, so I anticipate having the animation done on time!
