The Storytelling Begins...

View the storyboards here >>>

I have for a long time been moving towards storyboarding, and this is my first real attempt.  Don't judge a book by its cover because it has nothing to do with Crime Scene Investigation.

While I make no claims to quality, it does come with the official Michael Mercer stamp of "Bet you haven't seen THIS before."

Crits welcomed.

Star Man Master of the Universe and his side kick Princess She-Ra

I have always wondered how Star Wars would have been different if it had been truer to its original movie poster.  What if Luke Skywalker had actually been more of a He-Man Conan barbarian instead of the sissy force-is-strong-with-this-one teenager?  What if his light saber really was 100 ft tall??  And what if Princess Leia really COULD use a gun and she looked great zapping StormTroopers in her Chun-Li outfit and cape?

" what long legs you have."
And while he's looking at Leia's legs she pulls out her blaster.
He falls flat his chest smoking.

Or for Luke:

Obiwan: "A more elegant weapon from a more civilized age."  //Obiwan hands Luke the light saber.
Luke: "RAAAAAAAAAAARRR!!!!!!" //Luke cuts Obiwan in half.  He raises the carcass above his head and screams while the sky turns yellow-green, his muscles bulge, and his clothes are ripped into shreds and blown away by the Tatooine wind.

"Crom lives!"

This little guy I did awhile ago but he didn't make it to the blog for some reason.  I guess because the image lacks any sort of spatial cues you would have no way of knowing that he was small...I was thinking of what some of the guys at the gym might look like if they were a dragon...but when you think about it, a dragon should have a larger upper body, right?  I mean, what would you do with legs anyway if you could fly?

More characters

We greet this woman after another night of regret.  I have always been greatly disappointed by women that have a gift of physical beauty and then sacrifice real love and real relationships for nights of pleasure and "fun," often retreating into alcohol or drugs to aid them in this quest.  I am even more disappointed in the men that entice women to be this way, or that scheme to get the physical pleasures they desire, or that lack self control in their relationships (or don't see the psychological and emotional need for it).  Unlike some, I do not believe sex or money are symbols of manhood but I believe genuine Christlike love is.

Sneak Peak of Upcoming Attractions

Just FYI I haven't abandoned rewriting the Wizard of Oz, or working on it...I just keep most of it secreto.  This, however, is a sneak peak.  I'm still investigating how to tackle the enormous amount of work I have dedicated myself to, but my philosophy is "steady as she goes."  Ten or twenty years from now I will have a written, designed, and storyboarded film to make!

Wind-down sketch

Returned to my fantasy roots tonight.  I studied horses from life for a couple of days and I think I will do it some more after I memorize more of the anatomy.  I don't really feel like I know what's going on but I had fun and that's all I was going for tonight.  Later.
