Interesting, thanks. I have always been fascinated by the different working process of directors, some who use storyboards or don't, and different approaches. Recently I saw Spielberg say that he uses them on most big movies, but for "The Post" he decided not to, to give himself and actors flexibility on the set. That sort of thing is very interesting.

Then too, some directors can draw themselves, at least simple stick figures. Or work closely with the artist.

Nice work here Metalni .

That piece with Batman and Predator has a great sense of dynamism.

Keep going dude.

@TimR: Yes, that's true.
Every director has a different approach... But, from my professional point of view, I will say that the storyboards are really helpful asset.
Before everything, they will give you a great insight into the scene you need to shot. Also, it's easier, cheaper and faster to draw or change a sketch, instead of the whole crew.

Once, I saw a storyboard booklet from some famous movie... Interesting, most of them were drawn very poorly- but, they served their purpose perfectly.

I'm always saying- its not about the quality of drawing, but about the essence of the scene and a perfect camera positions/transitions.


@Artloader: Thanks man... I'm a fan of both of them.

That makes sense. I wonder if board artists get enough credit for what we see on the screen. I guess every case is different. I know some directors are famously closely involved in the boards, eg Hitchcock.

Regarding the credits, not sure about that- I guess that every case is different.
Last year I got a credit on IMDB for a storyboard I've done for one short movie in the Germany.

What I dont like is that sometimes, some directors tries to cut down a price with a big words like "you'll receive a credit" or something like that... I didnt count, but I've drew more that 5000 pages so far- and I have no idea did I got any credit for them.
I just did my job- and that's it.

In general, I will say that directors get the most of the cake.
It's sad, because, many times some movies were very successful and famous not only for a perfect directing, but also because of their storyboards and concepts.

I love your approach, I'm a big fan of high contrast art. BTW the screaming face on the last page is great

The heads proportions are anatomically off ...They fall to short on the back of the skull and the faces drop too low on each sketch...Proportions need to be executed properly before changing or bending the rules which in turn will be believable.

I cannot tell what is going on in these drawings...Why are they so damn black???..Wrinkles on the drapery is poorly executed even in silohuette...Done properly, drawings blacked in can be believable when all the proportions, anatomy and drapery are done correctly...No matter the genre or reason for the art. You really need to work hard as hell as well as study to get this stuff right and doing "finished?" Doodles without knowing the basics is futile.

your crit is very interesting but I thought I would chime in and say I love black. metalini can speak for himself but if you look at Kelly Jones, Frank Miller, Mignola, ect., they smother the page in black ink. Many pros and fans do it iincluding me because it is part of us. I dont think I'd like Kelly as much if he cut down on the ink.

You missed the point...I did not state that black is BAD nor did i state the use of black being wrong..My point is that " pro work" is drawing correctly before black is added to insure the compositions and figures "READ" clearly and tell the story...If you are a pro, I would like to see that work and what publications you have been published.
