Storyboarding is a very tough business, and many, if not most board artists struggle to make a decent living. A new storyboarder really needs to have their wits about them and have some professional savvy to survive in this very tough, competitive field. Storyboarding: Rules of Thumb offers highly illustrative examples of basic storyboarding concepts, as well as sound, career-oriented advice for the new artist.  This book also features a number of veteran storyboard artists sharing their experiences in the professional world. * Includes exercises, case studies, and interviews with leading professionals - grounded with practical advice and experienced step-by-step workflows. * Great for beginner to intermediate storyboard artists; explore the basic principles of storyboarding including design, composition and color as well as panel to panel storytelling and page to page storytelling. * Breaks down what new professionals can expect on the business-side of the artform - from an experienced professional artist.
