Right so, here we go. I sat down yesterday with the Frankenstein script and started doing thumbnails. Here's where i figure out the rough layout of each page, where characters need to be on the page, where speech bubbles will go, and what reference i'll need. From these, i'll do more finished layouts where i'll get a more specific idea of what reference i'll need exactly, work out light sources, spot blacks, etc. Then, eventually, i'll get to pencilling the page ....at some stage.
If you can make any sense out of this, fair flay to yeh. I understand it, but at this stage, i'm the only one who needs to. I'll scribble down little details, in case i had an idea of what i'd like to add to a scene and i'm scared i'll forget it.
