Vis Dev A Fish Story

Above is a vis dev story beat for A Fish Story. For those of you not familiar with the terminology “vis dev” is short for visual development. A “story beat” is an important part of the story…one that “drives the characters”.  These are all terms in “previs” which is short for pre-visualization.

My daughter said the drawing reminded her of the “original Cinderella story. You know, the Chinese folktale?” I never heard of this.

This has a wonderful sense of mood and story! I’m amazed at your skills in being able to do this with just a few pencil lines

I really love your sketches. I love the realism mixed with the fantastical edge of caricature—really, really lovely.
