Eureka!


Holy Crap! Check these out.
i think it finally clicked. I've been watching a lot of animated films' storybaords on DVD extras, not to mention trying to analyze their appeal and expressiveness.

It's not about drawing entirely 100% on model. Sure, that's the fundamentals, but in the end it's all about APPEAL. Personality, staging. shapes, lines. negative space, rhythm. (Or, as Flying John Culhane says, Gradation, Repetition, Unity, Contrast Harmony.)
