Storyboarding

Flooby Nooby Site: The page I’ve specifically linked is a massive treasure trove of everything you could ever want to learn about storyboarding, and according to a co-worker who also teaches boarding at a fancy art school, should be required reading. When saved as a PDF though, this post is over 400 pages long. So get started. The rest of this site, run by animation director Ron Doucet, is also great, particularly his posts on the cinematography of The Incredibles.

Griz and Norm Instagram: Norm Lemay is a board artist at Disney and his illustrations are phenomenal. Griselda “Griz” Sastrawinata-Lemay is a character designer and VisDev artist at Disney whose style is the definition of charming. This husband-wife duo are best known for their Tuesday Tips, weekly ‘cheat sheet’-type content which have been published into two sought after books that are always sold out online. They’re just too very talented people who seem more than happy to share their knowledge.

Lyndon Ruddy’s The Art of the Storyboard course: Lyndon is a friend and former co-worker with over 20 years of animation experience. His class over at Aaron Blaise’s site is top-notch and so helpful for beginners, pros, and everyone in between. Check out this hour-long preview video of his class. All of the courses on Aaron’s site, Creature Art Teacher, are amazing, and I can vouch for the amazing trove of information and inspiration Lyndon’s packed into this one.

Temple of the Seven Golden Camels: A blog dedicated to storyboarding run by long time Disney story artist Mark Kennedy. It’s an endless trove of interesting articles, videos, drawings, and what have you from around the internet coupled with Kennedy’s own insights.
