Today starts a fairly long series, where I will be posting a bunch of thumbnail storyboards from shows like Kim Possible, Recess, The Recess Movie, and other little bits and pieces. Some will be full episodes, others just fragments, and still others mere scribbles as I tried to work something out. I just thought it would be fun to share these as a window into my process. You will see notes in the margins, questions about bgs and props, crossed out panels as I tried and abandoned certain approaches. Thumbnail sketches are often more energetic and fun than the tied down clean-ups. Hopefully, you think so too.
Today’s thumbs come from the episode “Showdown at the Crooked D.” It is only a partial board, but it’s a pretty good chunk. I really had fun drawing Dr. Drakken in a ten-gallon hat and chaps. That’s funny right there, before the story even gets started!
