 Hullo everyone!  I've been a member of this community for a while but haven't surfaced, so here I am posting for the first time.  I thought I would like to share a link to the blog of one of my favorite storyboard artists, Mark Kennedy.


He works as a storyboard artist for Disney.  I love his blog because he's very analytical about shots, montages, and story.  I think it's pretty cool.  :)

In Photoshop, from start to finish.

Justin "Coro" Kaufman develops rough shots first and build them in Black & White to keep control of the values. He then goes on to colouring.
The result is well worth a watch and can be inspiring for aspiring storyboard colourists too.
Take a look by yourself.

It is not always necessary to have a story in advance.
Storyboarding is also used to develop stories, in this video, the tutor Sherm Cohen talks about developing the POV of a character which is the base and the essence of creating a story.

I have had the pleasure to get a few comments on my work from John Brito, a seasoned professional and a passionate visualist / storyboard-artist.

Here are the advices he gave me:

"- Try do develop your anatomy skills. Try to find out what the difference is between your drawings and what you actually see... which comes to the next point:
- A good artist is somebody who just doesn´t watch - but who sees... details, proporations, scales, colors, shadows...
- There is a model for drawing faces ... I think it´s called "planes of the face" try to find something about it and try it out.... I think it´s a good start.
- And very important: begin drawing from nature... begin with something easy like boxes, then move on to trees for example; and when you have enough self confidence draw real people... your friends or people standing somewhere or sitting in a café. 
And as hint for becoming a storyboard artist: get good - and get fast.  Storyboarders don´t have the time an usual illustrator has, maybe on a normal workday you´ll have to draw between 10 and 55 frames
And yes, I work remotely with artists around Europe.
There is another part where you might find a job: Sometimes, storyboard artist look for other artists to colour their boards. it´s not uncommon to have such collaborations. Maybe you think about coloring digitally with Photoshop or Painter....
And as for jobs/agencies:
There is one agency called http://www.tuveneatu.at/ have a look at the style they have; try do produce stuff like that and when you think you are on the same level just send them some samples - but only your best stuff. This agency works with colourist, too.
Good luck with your art!"

I am very grateful to him for taking some of his precious time to answer my questions and I am endeavored to share this insight with you and all of this community'readers.
