I acknowledge that there isn't much value in storyboarding a completed cartoon except as an exercise. And to gain an understanding of just how much work storyboarding is. Trust me, it's a ton of work. And I did things the easy way. I'll never amount to anything as a storyboarder, that's for sure.
To all the professional storyboarders out there, hats off to you!!
Anyway, let me pitch the premise for our third project:
1) It's either a poster or a comic book cover. Right now I'm leaning toward poster because the visual lays out better in landscape rather than portrait. But then... I'm not very good at these things.
2) I envision Baba Loo pushing El Kabong into a bullring. Here's the capture:
|I plan on putting a guitar in her outstretched hand.|
|The capture actually has the Terrible Tabasco facing the other way but I want him behind and above El Kabong. Conversely, I want the lovely senorita above the menacing bull and facing El Kabong.|
The bullring will be very simple. We'll be at a grounds-eye view so, really, all we'll see is a concave wall and two door openings facing one another. I love the soft, pastel clouds in the cartoon and I just know I'll try putting them in the poster (I'm a sucker for visuals).
Visualize: a door at either side. From the left emerges the bull. Above the bull, in the stands, the lovely senorita desperately offers El Kabong his guitar. From the right Baba-loo pushes a reluctant El Kabong into the ring. Above them, in the stands, the Terrible Tabasco laughs his evil laugh... delighted that this arch nemisis is about to meet a "gore-y" end.
Hey! Not a bad lil' pun!
