In fact, it is a picture of a famous Japanese singer who sang in an all girl pop group named SPEED during the mid to late 90s. Her name is Hiroko Shimabukuro. Hiro for short. Unfortunately, they disbanded several years ago. I recently found out they are back together and singing as SPEED. Freelance Union Article: 5 Tips for Preventing Procrastination.

A Storyboard Sheet I've Created Using Flash



I'm not only an artist but, a designer as well. The week of Christmas last year I had a cold and was sick and shut in. That gave me plenty of time to create a storyboard template in Flash to use as a paperless way to draw storyboards. I've been debating whether or not to post the .fla files for them. If I do I may have to post a video, as well. There's a bit of functionality that needs to be shown for people to use them. Included with the storyboard .fla file there's a scene that's set up as a Character Design Sheet. In addition to that there's a Beat Board scene to sketch out your ideas. Without any further adieu. Here's the .jpg file to oggle. :)

Also, I've uploaded this at full size so if you'd like to use this to print your own storyboards that's fine. This was copied from a storyboard I found online from Scribd.com. It's based on an actual Frederator storyboard of El Tigre. The title of which is: No Belt, No Boots, No Brero storyboarded by
Ricky Garduno. Unfortunately, Ricky passed away. I would have liked to sit and talk shop with him about his storyboarding experiences on El Tigre and Mucha Lucha. If someone would upload the full No Belt, No Boots, No Brero episode to Youtube, that would be great. I could then see how good the translation from storyboard to film was.

Here's the link where I found the story.

If you'd like to learn more about "Adventure Time" and "Bravest Warriors" by looking at the storyboards of these two animated shows here's somethings you really should have a look at.

Sometime in the near future I'll post some storyboards drawn from some scripts I've found online. :)
