79 drawings #1

My storyboarding class started today, and at the beginning of every class, we will be doing 79 drawings of frames from movies/animation. They start out as quick 10 second sketches and gradually build up to a final 5 minute sketch. It's hard to do quick 10 second sketches at first, but you get used to it, and just move on to the next one. I actually liked it a lot, really good practice of making quick drawings and quickly deciding how much detail you need and what is important in the scene.

Here are the 79 drawings from the first day, and the movie today was 2001: A Space Odyssey. Will try to post these from each session. Should be a fun class.

Working on a layouts for a mock-up of my portfolio website. I think we are just creating the mock-ups for class, but not coding this. Hopefully I'll be able to code it fairly well by the end of the class so that it is easily updatable through CSS.

p.s. resisting the urge to use helvetica!
