Something New: A Despicable Comic!

So in going along with my self-induced Month of Storyboarding, and to celebrate the release of Despicable Me 2, I'm doing something special!

I was a big fan of the first movie. And I was a big fan of the Minions! As soon as I saw the first one, I realized there was tons of potential for short stories involving them. And being the person I am, the gears began turning, and I started writing down ideas for shorts or comics (since at the time I couldn't animate yet). So that was a few years ago now. And the second movie just came out! So what better way for me to celebrate the movie's release than scrounge up those ideas and turn one into an actual comic!

So here you go! I thought of making a series back then called Despicable Comics. They would be the shorts I came up with and I would make them periodically and put them online. Well, in essence, this is the first run of that! Below is a link where you can find scans of my mockups or plans for the final pages of the first Despicable Comic! I hope you enjoy!

Currently Preparing Boards

Victory! After three days of work, last night's lasting until six this morning, I've finally finished the shots for FACED! At present, I've designed 105 shots for the short. Everything is now ready to continue moving on towards an animatic. Now, let's see how many of these shots I can pump out in the next month! Here's to staying busy!
