Akiak Storyboard Project Picture

Sometimes in the schoolwork I’ve been doing I get to mess around with my original ideas a bit.

In the class we have to create an original storyboard sequence. I decided to take a scene involving my hero character Akiak and his first confrontation with and evil deity. This is the very beginning of the sequence so there is more to come, and if the rest turns out as decent as these did I’ll post the rest, as they are finished over the next few weeks.
