You can totally look at my test, but you should also really really not look at it like it’s what storyboards are supposed to look like. Storyboards are much more well-drawn and on model than what I did. Oh ho hooo are mine wrong.
Also, Regular Show is unusual in that the storyboarders are supposed to write everything as well, not just draw from a script. On Regular Show, the storyboarding test is almost more of a writing test than a drawing test.
That first chunk up there are all my thumbnails. I tested for the pie contest episode. At the time I was like “Whatever, it’s just a thumbnail, it’s just supposed to get the idea across right?” I still hold true to that basic tenant, but I draw them better now. My thumbnails are still pretty trashy and off model, but I think everyone has gotten used to them at this point and accepts that I always draw much better during cleanup.
These are the cleanups I did for my test.
So there you go. What you see there is the first time I tried storyboarding something, and they still decided I was worth hiring. At the time I was really nervous doing it because I was living in China. I couldn’t really bounce my jokes off of anyone while I was writing it, I was just sort of living in a joke vacuum. Seemed to work out okay though!
Haha, I feel so much discomfort looking at this, but whatever! Have at!
