That made a lot of sense, and now I'm going to see it in action by perusing cartoons on t.v and YouTube!

Would this type of paneling also work in comic books, or is it less effective with still-shots? (in regards to trying to convey emotion). Storyboarding seems a lot like doing a rough comic, but I'm assuming there are huge differences between the two, seeing as one is intended to translate into animation, and one remains still.

The thinking behind it works for comics but that's a whole separate medium. In animation, you're thinking about acting and movement. With comics the acting is harder because it's reduced to a single expression instead of a performance. But you can suggest movement by the arrangement of panels in a comic. My next post will probably be about comics and touch on this sort of thing.
