graphite storyboards


here's another storyboard page from an avatar episode.
it's kinda refreshing to look back at my old boards.
especially since i work all digital now.
i really enjoy drawing on the cintiq,
but there's something very appealing to me
when i draw with a pencil on a piece of paper.
i guess it's the textural quality it achieves.
or maybe it's because i've been drawing on paper for so long.
