Tuesday Tip - Beat Boards / Storyboards
It can be a daunting task to just “start storyboarding”. Because there’s so many things to think about when storyboarding, we all need a roadmap to know where we are going. Beat boards are not even the first step to creating a story, but it’s often the clearest way to pitch an early concept to someone. It’s also very useful to plan out the larger beats of a large physical sequence (action, chase, etc.). This way, you don’t have to go on a limb for a week or two and have to redo it all if it doesn’t work. They’re sort of like your Key Poses in animation, but put on a story scale. Does that make sense? Message me if you have any questions or suggestions about future posts.
I’ve seen some background noise pages around tumblr like rainymood, but I don’t think I’ve really seen this page recommended on tumblr.
The plus of this page is without a doubt the huge list of sound machines that you can open in several tabs and mix as you like, ranging from natural sounds like rain and waves to industrial noises to relaxing tunes like in utero. It’s suitable as background noise for work as well as for relaxing and sleep.
Someone find one with buzzing bee sounds and i will be happy forever okay

IF YOU WANTED TO TRAVEL BUT YOU HAVE LITTLE MONEY, I RECCOMEND USING THIS SITE!
It’s a site for students to travel cheap! This screenshot above is the price ranges for a flight from Columbus, Ohio to London, England one way trip for March. I set ot up as an example.
AS AN AVID TRAVELER, this price is actually quite amazing! One year, i got my (formerly $2000) round about ticket to Japan for only $800! DO YOU FUCKERS KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO TRAVEL ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD FOR THAT CHEAP.
It’s commercial air flight, but that’s not so bad when you CAN ACTUALLY TRAVEL WITHOUT GOING INTO DEBT. HALLELUJA.
So i reccomend this site for all!
REBLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD!
I BET THERE ARE TUMBLR FRIENDS WHO WANTTO MEET EACH OTHER! THIS MAY HELP!
This needs more notes.
Now Mina let me fly to you and we can be besties
brb guys, flying to Canada to see Ash
The first Wild Kratts Episode that I worked on airs today! Super excited :D!!
My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).
What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.
MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.
This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.
For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!
Now go draw, babies!
Very helpful! This works whenever my tablet is having any problems at all. It’s very simple and very effective!
I am just crying tears of happy joy and whispering GAIAONLINE TAKE NOTE
