Instead of just telling a story, we decided we would make it up. My daughter would make up the story, with a bit of direction from myself, and I would draw them as fast as I could to keep up with her creative drive. You can tell from these three images how I got a bit more comfortable by the end, especially when we would linger on a panel talking about whys and hows of the "story flow".
Basically, a story about a girl named "Alexandra" (my daughter's name is Alejandra, so I can only guess it is her wish to project herself into the story, naturally). This girl walking in the woods, stumbles upon a cave, and goes exploring, finding scary but friendly vampire bats and vampires along the way (her idea obviously inspired by the Halloween goings-on these days). The sparse speech balloons are in Spanish. In the end, the girl is given an amulet (very much like one my daughter was given a few days ago) that will protect her from evil vampires.
This, being my first storyboard experience, was fun for me because I mixed quality daughter time with art time. At the same, it opened my eyes. It was a simulation of the pressure storyboard artists may go through sometimes. Indeed, something very worthwhile to try at a serious level, if I ever want to create a story in any form.
