This is kinda a follow-up to the post that I made earlier this week, where I talked about scripts. Thumbnails/breakdowns are the step that follows the scripting stage. The timing is good, as my student Maddi and I are at this point now. Her script is in a near finished state and I emailed her yesterday with a brief explanation about how I do my thumbnails and included the example that I am using for this post. These 2 pages are from the upcoming Don mini. In a very rough form, they show the panels and within them the placement of characters. Also, at this time I try to include some idea about what I want the dialogue to be. Once the book is laid out, we can see what each page will look like and make changes to the story or visuals if we decide it's needed.
