01. It’s all about telling the story

By reading and proving the script of the show, it is important to remember the character of the story.

  • What is happening in the story right now?

  • How does it affect the character?

  • What is their state of mind?

  • How do they feel?

  • How should the audience feel?

  • What is the emotional moment that I'm trying to communicate

02. Build on the line of action

The line of action is the design foundation for your characters

It is a design related to the energy by the characters which they draw. In this character, the world on the shoulders will touch the head on the ground, with the success of the opposite direction throwing the weight into the air.

03. One drawing equals one idea

Each frame should represent a single step in the story

In this drawing, some of the multiple ideas are given by the audience to create a new idea for the storyboard artists to commit and create new ideas which it takes one or more steps to describe the character of the drawing in which how they look and react with their expressions respectfully.

O4.Draw cleanly for animation

Make sure your drawings retain the energy of your initial sketches

Sketches are very important while drawing the character with simple shapes and volume; it ensures the dimension of the character with space with tilt and twist on the shoulder.

05. Find clarity in silhouettes

If your character's action isn't clear in silhouette form, it'll need more work

People have a very short time to absorb the information before they get the next idea. They should not get any doubt or any state of mind of the character.

To draw a character is very easy and simple, these characters won’t stop moving my losing their emphasis on what matters the characters are lost on the screen. These will change the position and attitude of the text.

07. Think like an actor

Use a mirror to help you get the right expressions for your characters

They plan the performance of the characters on the television. Voice actors will define the characters to listen to the dialogue expressing each and every movement to draw. Each character can reflect the performance individually which is challenging for the story artists to maintain.

08. Use the frame as the 'eye'

16:9 is the standard aspect ratio in most countries

09. Sketch thumbnails for a simple panel

Use quick thumbnails to explore storytelling solutions

It uses quick thumbnails to explore storytelling solutions.

10. Establish the point of view with the horizon line/eye line

A low horizon line is often the best choice

When the element bisects the scene from the horizon line, everything in the horizon line is the same height line, which makes the scene easy. All the characters of the scene will fit in the world which we have created.

12. Create a rough storyboard panel

Once you've found a suitable thumbnail, work it up into a rough

The elements which come through the rough panel have been selected the size of the thumbnail of the finished panel which poses the structure of the character.

13. Clean up the storyboard

Clean up the rough and add any requested changes

Some of the productions require tight-ona model drawings like looser or more energetic drawings.

14. Ensure continuity

Don't allow the camera to cross the line through the characters

It is very important in the film-making principle and fundamental acceptance of continuity. They translate the 3D world into a 2D experience in the world.

15. Consider film time and editing

Learn the language of film and use it to tell the story

It extends to compress the reorder time to the best suite in our story. The shot’s size and design should be varied from the translation from one shoot to another shoot.

It has a camera replacement and camera movement within the scene sequencing of the shot’s when the time is allocated to the scene.
