WIP for a storyboard from the second sequence I’m doing for the pilot. I’m not sure if I’m going to redraw over this, or tidy up the explosion and leave it as a photo.

Storyboard #1 is complete! Now onto the second, which has lots of external shots. 
Aaargh, apparently Tumblr resized that image weirdly. You can see a full-sized version here

The first storyboard sequence is done! Now I just need to figure out how I’m going to get it up here, as it’s longer than the 10-image limit for individual posts.

I finally got around to soldering the LOLShield to make Dr. Swan’s face with, but as I was about to attach it to the Arduino I have, I realize I have the wrong size, and it won’t fit. 

So now I have to order an Arduino Duemilanove, so I can actually connect the thing. 

On the plus side, that means I get to order more stuff from the Robot Shop, and buying from a place called “The Robot Shop” (robotshop.com) is pretty great.

Detail work on the Pilkington. The body is all done, so next I need to igure out the lighting.

Adding some detail to the Pilkington model. This one side is basically done; now I have to do the other side, and I suppose tidy up the bottom. The rear of the ship needs some ornamentation for the engines, as well.
It’s looking pretty cool, I think.

This is the initial build of the Disney Bird of Prey. Hopefully the front of the ship is believable as a giant battering ram. 
I’ll get this puppy painted just as soon as I finish my spray booth, which *hopefully* won’t take too long, as I have figured out, I believe, how to wire it correctly.

Whatever you say, Ernest Hemingway
Your midweek inspiration.

"The first draft of anything is shit" is a wonderful bit of truth by Mr. Hemingway; this isn’t. The notion of the writer who has to be drunk or high to access his creativity or his art is offensive to me as a writer. Also, regarding Hemingway in particular, he drank to push away his demons, but given the way his life ended, that obviously didn’t work.

Blogger Drone MK 2. I think this is a much nicer design, and will look appropriate when large swarms of them are moving around. Still haven’t decided on a colour to use, though.

More storyboards! Only 11 left to colour for the first sequence. Then I can work on the second, which involves spaceships, and likely me making cardboard versions of all of the space ships, so that I can get proper photo reference so they look cool.
