happens when you mix Adam, He-Man, Teela, and a Monster,
with Busta Toons?
2001 I decided that I wanted to animate He-Man, as it had
been too many years since the most powerful man in the universe
had graced the animated scene. The basic idea for this animated
short was to tell a story that had a beginning and an end
with a substantial amount of action in-between.
of writing the idea down on paper and scripting the action
I did what the old Warner Brothers animation directors did;
create the story by boarding it first! The storyboards were
drawn about half a year in advance of me getting around
to animating it. I pretty much followed what I had boarded
originally, making only a few changes.
I was animating the short and making minor changes I had
to make additional sketches and notes so that I could keep
track of what I was supposed to be doing. Below you can
see how I created some of the new scenes, and just how messy
my notes can be.
