digital boarding process

i recorded this for a friend. ive been asked about my digital process before, and i thought that a video would do that justice. better than typing it up anyway.. i get a bit chatty but, i hope it helps if anyone is looking for a way to streamline their digital storyboarding process

and it was a lot of fun to record. if its beneficial id be happy to do more of these just post a comment or shoot me an email :)

Wow, your demo had a lot of great stuff that I didn't realized before, like keeping the values on the side. Thanks for sharing! :D

This isn't related to storyboarding, but could you possibly do a quick coloring/painting demo? I reaaally like your "Waiting" drawing and your "Doodles" post, and I'm just curious as to how you did them.

I cannot explain to you the immense gratitude I feel towards you for putting up this video of your process on how you board, name and color your shots. Phew! Answered a LOT of questions I've always had about digital boarding. :)
I wasted a lot of time trying to shove everything in one file and then naming it was also a mess.
The only question I have is, what do you normally keep the resolution to for a quick ideation stage board vs. a final finished board?
And can you also make a video on effects in boarding, like the motion blurs, gaussian blurs and where to use color?
Thanks a lot for this! Cheers!
