Layout is a question of drawing and background is a question of painting. Another way to say it is that layout is like designing a set which supports all the action in the story. The relationship between the characters' actions and the background is the focus of the layout artist, so the layout artist must study both the Character Model Sheets and the Storyboard. The layout artist explains the set and the relationship between the set and characters with drawings.
In this project, students will create a "Layout Pack" based on the storyboard for a 'Got Milk' commercial. The pack will include the following:
A map of the area
Layout design for each area in the scene
