A comic/storyboard hybrid. A scene from my screenplay. I was like how do these two people get busy. It's got to be like firecrackers and a slap in the face, I guess. I do know at some point I was writing this and thought, "yes! I get to have a split lip for the last half of the movie!". Because that's the way I think when I act. I'll look like a strung out Hollywood strip rock and roll dude sucking on my split lip and getting drunk in neon lit parking lots. And that's exactly what I want to play (?). I just found this yesterday, didn't remember drawing it, and inked it because I was bored. I don't know if the bloody lip or the slap really worked. If I filmed it I'd have them more silhouetted when they kiss.
I based them on me and someone I knew, and just extrapolated how additionally messed up we'd have to be to be a couple. We were close to these characters, just a little different. I was trying to write something that felt like a crazy independent movie from unhinged people about rock and roll burnouts and groupies. I'm really happy with how the female lead came out. I gave her a lot of cool stuff to do(that's got nothing to do with my character). Inspired by Sid And Nancy, Trainspotting, and Dazed And Confused. I want to film it using real lights on a low light camera, possibly in B&W.
Since screen sizes don't change, it's kind of useless to do different shapes of panels in storyboards. But this is my own thing and I get what the hell I'm doing and know how it translates. I use these sizes to get a feeling from the reader. A flow, but also where to pause, how to move the eye and in what direction. A sense of feeling from negative space or detail. You could conceivably reverse all the sizes of the panels and get a different feeling that would still work.
