A Storyboard for David Bowie’s Space Oddity.
This is a piece I worked on independently and for my own benefit. I have always loved Space Oddity by David Bowie, and wanted to find a way to honor his memory. I took it upon myself to learn the basics of storyboarding, and in the process I found that I had a lot of fun working on this project.
This project is composed of 97 different drawings, created using reference photos and Procreate on my iPad Pro. Below is the completed video, along with five of my favorite frames from this project.
