Five Line Story Activity !

on: January 02, 2015, 02:09:55 am
Hello Pixelators!
It's a new year.
And near the top of my list was:
Add new activities consistantly to Pixelation.
So why not start it off on the 1st day?  ;D

Five Line Story Activity !

Rules
  • Choose one of the stories given below
  • Create the visuals for each line of the story!
  • Include ALL of the text
  • Be creative!
  • Post your amazing interpretation :)

Story 1
It's been a long time...
What have you been up to?
Some of this and that...
Well... should we get started then?
Let's do it!


Story 2
HELLOOOOOO
That's weird...
I don't see anythi-
WTF!?
*drip* *drip*


Story 3
Mmmm....
Oh yes!
Soooo goood...
AH!
... whatever




Tips
A story board or comic strip layout is a good place to start, but is not required.

The number of characters, location, and context are not defined.
Stretch the meaning of the story.

I would give visual examples, but I want part of the fun to be figuring it out. ;)

Have fun!

Sounds interesting.
One question: are my own phrases allowed or must I use only the given ones?

This is a classic storyboarding exercise.
The point is to have a set limitation, the text, and a creative element, the visuals.
At first glance you might find that text defines visuals.
But with some experimenting I think you will find that visuals can define text just as easily.

Obviously story 1 is Private Muricca from "Call of Honor the Battle of Medalfield 4" visiting his grandma and baking a cake.  :)

Wanted to polish this, but a deadline suddenly came up, so here is an incredibly unpolished submission. A WIP submission? Anyway.
