Simple Shape Animation Challenge in Storyboards

Animation Short: 'Eat Moon' Storyboard
Ink storyboard for personal animation.

‘Eat Moon’ was a simple animation challenge:
To create a story, using only two basic 3D shapes as characters.

Inspired by the fantasy location of a painting I'd made: I picked a Sphere and a Pyramid for my shapes.  In the sequence, a small pyramid grows, grabs and eats   the bright moon, then is surrounded by a ring of other spiky pyramids as it dissolves into the ground.  Simple enough, there.

For the storyboards, I used a quick, sketchy style to emphasize the movement of the shapes and get the basic plot down.
