Revisiting the storyboard

In case anyone is curious about how the thumbnail sketches work for me and what kinds of things I'm looking at, beneath the cut are a few things that I've done/thought about since doing this storyboard.

Here is the photo again so you don't have to click back to my previous entry to see what I'm talking about

So, while looking at the storyboard, I noticed that spreads 2, 4 (well, actually in the 5th position) and 10 all have illustrations that are basically disembodied heads.  Spreads 2 and 4 have something else going on, and 4 will pretty much stand. But 2 and 10 even have the same angle. So, I moved the pony over a bit and will show some of the back along with a suggestion of a horse's back to give a size comparison. I also did a mirror flip to the critters on the right-hand page so that they are facing the pony.  Gives, to me, a more cohesive feel to both pages. The composition then resembles spread 8, but the animals are not face-to-face, so I don't feel it is too repetitive.

The second thing that jumped out at me was the almost identical horizon line (which might not be too noticable in the photo) of spreads 7 and 8.  That led me to rethink exactly what I want each image to portray and how that can tie in to what is under the flap.  Out came the pencils and I sketched some cattails with flowering spikes on spread 8. The spike closest to the right-hand page has seed fluff blowing off to the right, which will transform into something else under the flap.

I might also need to consider adding one or two different "camera"/POV angles to further change things up...

I can't quite see which spread is which (deficient eyes...), but I do know what you mean about not wanting to to have repetitious layouts, same horizon line, etc.

Very cool!
