Picking up something
I also finished Dereks Long storyboard this week so here it is :) (haven't done boat/ character designs but they wont take too long :), i will post them when there done.
TA DAAHHHHH!!!!!!............. yeahhh its not the best storyboard but derek said your storyboard dosnt have to be really detailed it just needs to get the point across its never going to be seen by the audience, and if it is well you can have a laugh with it :P. As long as your character designs are good and you can tell where said character is in the board then it works and is all gooood :P. Thats the way i see it anyway :D
