Story sketch thumbs for The Road


I read an amazing book recently, Cormac McCarthy's "The Road". I have never been so into a book before....inspired me so much that I started thumbnailing some story moments from the book.....it would make a great graphic novel..as it is already going to be a movie starring Viggo Mortensen . I wanted to get my ideas down first before I am influenced by the flick.... Enjoy.....

Hey Dave, it's Carl from your animal character design class. Great idea for a storyboarding exercise. Hope your week is going well. Anyways, I just started a sketch blog since all the cool kids had one. It links to my deviant art page as well.

You shoulda just went and done the whole thing anyways! Cause now I just wanna see more. Gah, now I have to read the book. Well done man!

I just finished that book as well,
What a thrilling ride.
There were some great visuals left to your imagination, I hate to say I think a Hollywood view could really mess it up, but it might work..

I thought about drawing to old man that they give food to, he seemed like a fun character.

Nice compositions!

Twan-

I agree about Hollywood screwing it up.This is why I wanted to get my initial ideas on paper before it gets contaminated by the movie....

You have to do that character....I actually still have some ideas in my head.... should get them out as well

Sweet thumbs-The Road is incredibly visual, almost a blueprint for a movie. Looking forward to seeing what John Hillcoat does with it, have you seen his previous flick 'The Proposition'?
