A short animatic clip from the "Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja" episode "McFists of Fury" that I did storyboards for. In this scene, Randy finally finds out his arch nemesis is actually Hannibal McFist, Norrisville's lovable gazillionaire.

Directed by Mike Milo, edited by Tommy Meehan and written by Hugh Webber. Ninja awesomeness created by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas.

just got into the series (it's trending now in Hungary) and already fell in love with the moves, the dynamics. even the characters' anatomy fits for the whole thing. oh, and the villains :D love them.
same thing with storyboards, I also wanted to be an animator..and I have some animations already, it's such a big work if you make the sketch and the inking alone.
btw, as an animator, how much did it take for you to draw/sketch one frame- for example Randy in the crowd? just curious

Oh, I'm so jealous. This is really great. You've really got dynamic shots and you make it look so easy! I started watching this show and was blown away by the animation. I've been trying to get into this studio as an animator ever since. 
You guys did a great job :)

Thank you! Great thing about Randy is that all the voice actors are excellent and bring so much more to the table than simply reading their lines, so there's a lot to work with when you're figuring out your acting.

And if you want to learn storyboarding, go for it! Study movies and people and practice, practice, practice. There's also the storyboard group here on DA for more samples and information, if you're interested. :meow:

Wow! You did the story boards for McFists of Fury?! I'm not gonna lie to you, the battles inside the museum were probably some of my faves from the whole series!

Yes, thanks so much!

Each episode was boarded by a team of two people. My awesome partner (and BF!) would always split the action sequences because they tend to be a heavier workload. He boarded the ninja fighting the famous Norissvillians and I did the McFist fight.

I haven't convinced him to join DA yet so you can see a clip of his at his tumblr.

You're welcome! And yeah, I haven't tried to do any kind of animation before, but I can understand why there would be more work involved in a battle.

Acting and action are both pretty pose heavy, but the action stuff usually has the added dimension of faster cutting (so more shots) and trying to think up cool angles/compositions. I was watching a whole lot of anime for inspiration during Randy.

So awesome! I love the shading style. May I ask what your process is? Do you board directly into flash or is this toonboom or photoshop? :)

Now I really want Storyboard pro! Your board might have convinced my boss to buy it :D

What about thumbnails? Do you tend to thumb straight into the program or elsewhere first?

Sweet, I wish I had a personal copy myself! I'm hoping to snag one if it goes on sale again or next time I'm in house at a studio and can possibly get a discount through them.

I usually do my thumbs in the program. If it's just me seeing them, I'll throw a couple of scenes worth of posing into one panel frame. Really small and rough - stick figure rough. Like using the panel as a sheet of paper with all my thinking down on one page.

If I have to pitch my thumbs, I'll do them cleaner and one per frame, so it'll be understandable to whomever will be in on the pitch.

There are times I do thumb on paper - usually in the margin of the script. Since its so casual and there's no need to worry about making the images pretty, it helps me go fast and bang out all the thinking quickly.

Thanks! This was done completely in ToonBoom Storyboard Pro.

Randy was the first time I had ever worked with that program and it took a board or so to get the hang of it. I've heard people hate on ToonBoom because "it's hard to make a pretty drawing in it", but the camera tools, timeline, how it streamlines your entire workflow... I really love boarding in it now.
