I think I can finally say this in some official way - somehow I've managed to win the Corel Painter Storyboard competition! The competition was announced via the corel website and Painter magazine way back in July last year. Entrants were lured with the chance of winning a Wacom Cintiq 21UX if you managed to snare first place.
Corel contacted me with the news that I'd won, but I didn't really believe it until I saw my boards in print in the current (Issue 13 Feb 2008) copy of the Corel Painter Mag. They've been very kind and given me a double page spread to show off the boards. There are so many images though that inevitably some of them are difficult to make out and its quite hard to follow - so I think I'll post some of them here for those who are interested. Below is a kind of 'trailer' for the main feature a few of the illustrations at a decent res to show you how they looked as I worked on them. I'll put the full boards up soon. You have been warned.
