I like your B&W value studies. Do you usually start with those before doing a finished color version?
@ Jeremy: Yes if I have time. Always try to solve composition and values on a thumbnail before rendering. On some occasions when I'm on a crunch or the piece Ill do is similar to what I've done before, I'll go straight to color.
This is so cool! Thanks for posting a progression :)
This is great! I agree with Becky, thank you for posting a progression.I hope you've been well, Armand! I'd love to see you again when I get back to LA.

hi armand your sooo amazingly awesome....dude. i am one of your greatest fans ever and a struggling designer, need some tips from you to be a successful production designer,...abt the kind of approach you should hav towards subject of design,composition and colours? i am sure you wouldnt mind sharing some thoughts,thnx.
I watched your CTN video on the Power of Thumnails.What's the difference between thumbnails and storyboards? You mentioned thumbnails making it into the final movie. Do thumb nail artists sketch-out every shot in a scene? Or do story board artists sketch every shot in a scene. Do directors use just one thumbnail as a starting point for an entire scene and give it to storyboard artists to take the essence of your thumbnail and turn it into a shot by shot storyboard?
@ryan: The storyboard process in features is taking the script into series of quick sketches/thumbnails with a limited amount of staging needed mainly conveying the flow of the story. When the workbook process in 2D takes over on the other hand, it brings these story boards into shot-by-shot design boards complete with all the mechanics of staging (lighting, camera, etc.) laying down the blueprint for the film through the layout department. In CG, process goes from story boards to previz and 3D layout. "Do directors use just one thumbnail as a starting point ...?" The story artists are a totally different breed of talent themselves that they can flesh out a series of board sketches from a single line of script. This is also where vizdev is very valuable for inspiration from his concept artwork for that sequence being boarded.
