Since so many stories and comics center around dynamic characters, it is essential to convey the right emotions and actions in our storyboards. The drag and drop feature makes it super easy to get characters into your storyboards, but what do you do next? I have made many a storyboard in my time. Let me share some of the tricks I have picked up!

Templates originate from builders and other craftsman who made forms and molds to serve as guides for shaping materials. Templates have since expanded to include document formatting, along with many other uses like printing and sewing. A template is a pre-formatted guide that can be used again and again. Blank templates for graphic organizers are especially useful because you do not need to recreate the same thing over and over, and they can be used for many purposes.

One of the newest features to be added to Storyboard That is Smart Scenes. Essentially, Smart Scenes enable the user to customize the scene in a variety of ways - from the weather to the time of day. Now, you can customize BOTH characters and scenes to make sure your storyboard is exactly how you want it.

Incorporating a three-dimensional property like depth into a two-dimensional plane (a storyboard for example) can be difficult, but there are some tips and tricks to help create the illusion of depth. Depth is always illusory in a 2-D space (photos, drawings), which are flat. Our brains are built for 3-D environments though. They take cues from lighting, shadows size, and angles in order to interpret our distance to objects, and we can apply these tricks to a 2-D medium with perspective, thereby tricking our brains into seeing distance and depth in a storyboard.
