Process: Using Storyboards in Comics by NelsonBlakeII
Process: Using Storyboards in Comics
I like to storyboard a script before turning it into comic book layouts.  This helps me separate content ideas from design ideas, and clarify the flow of action visually.  I’ll often change things going into the page(angles, transitions, etc), as the boards just act as a first draft.  Once the action is out of my head and onto the page in some form, I can focus on design.  It seems like an extra step, but confidence is important when working on pages and this step takes a lot of the doubt out of the process.

Zatanna by NelsonBlakeII
Zatanna

Zatanna is the best illusionist in the Gothamverse.  Everything she does is practiced sleight of hand.  She’s one of the most intelligent, skilled and dangerous characters to visit Gotham, but almost everyone falls for her act.  Zatanna didn’t learn her craft from the magic shop on the corner and her best kept secret is just how powerful she really is.

The Penguin Oswald Cobblepot by NelsonBlakeII
The Penguin Oswald Cobblepot

He’s the realization of every corporate conspiracy theory.  He’s an occultist cannibal that only sees people as food for his various appetites.  Our compassion is an absurdity and a weakness that makes it impossible for Cobblepot to see anyone as an equal.  His expensive but outdated clothes are a parody that belie just how far gone Oswald is.  A sane psychopath.  

Underneath the perfume, he stinks of inhumanity.

Hey all.  Usually when I make a journal I have to apologize for a year of inactivity.  This time I've been posting art semi-regularly and I hope you've all been enjoying that.  Thanks to everyone who stops by and even more so to those who take the time to comment or favorite a pic.  I've been playing around with video more lately, recording some drawing sessions on Livestream and today I posted a sped of version of one of those sessions on Youtube.  Links below:

Following me on Twitter is the best way to be notified when I'm about to stream.  I usually tweet about an hour or two before I start streaming, though there is no rhyme or reason to what times I stream.  Twitter: twitter.com/nelsonblake2

Upcoming books:
Witchblade #165
Witchblade/Darkness Western issue
Artifacts #29

Should I start using this journal for all that opinion stuff?  I'm being convinced more and more that broad internet opinions are a waste of time.  Then again, this journal or a blog is a much better format than Facebook or Twitter for that kind of thing. Still on the fence....
