Found a photo of one of my canvas'. I have others done in the same dry brush technique which I will upload when I am able to take photos of them. Then maybe I can upload a better photo of this one as the angle of the camera is off distorting the face slightly but never mind.

Back into second year of uni at the University of Glamorgan !
To kick off the year we had a storyboarding project. We were given a script for an episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and had to make a storyboard for our own selected part in the script. Seeing as I have never watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I struggled with the action sequences with only a help of a standard standing turn around found online, but apart from that I am happy with how the overall storyboard came out.
I decided to do use a fine liner for the outlining, then adding grey pen to give slight shading and to overall make the drawing easier to read. I then went back with coloured pencil to show the turtle characters. I wanted to keep the overall look very simple with only a colour spotting look to show character, and used a dark background only when the background was of importance within the scene so it was clear what the main subject of the shot was.
The script I was given was Rafael ripping off the military ribbons of a gangster as he is impersonating an officer, followed by a cheesy joke involving a satellite falling on his back and impersonating a turtle. After this, the "Globfather" and Rafael battle as the turtles look on shocked and helpless.
If you see that's whats going on then I guess my job is done !
