The Dream That Travels Color Script by hakuku The Dream That Travels Color Script by hakuku
This is my original story "The Dream That Travels". Its more of a concept now than an actual story but I do want to work on it more in the future!

Here is a brief walkthrough of the script (but hopefully the images can speak for itself)!:

While Terry is day dreaming in class, he is interrupted by his teacher with a D+ on his recent test. Going home he is confronted by his parents, who disapproves of his grades. Deciding to distract himself with things not related to school, he busies himself with either watching sci-fi shows on the TV or going on his room, tinkering with junk and objects. Mainly clock parts. Setting out to a nearby forest on crutches, we discover a fake time machine he has been working on in the middle of the forest.

He sits inside and starts to imagine.

Going through space and time, he even imagines his own body growing into something more stronger and tall. Terry appears in a future-like city close to his era (late 50’s). Finding that he can walk freely, he wanders into places he cannot as a kid, such as sophisticated bars on top of skyscrapers. Meeting a waitress, he gives a shot at drinking but fails at making himself look composed. However, the waitress looks like she is taking something out for him, and all of a sudden, its his D+ paper!

Snapping back to reality, Terry finds himself back in his classroom, with the teacher looking down on him sternly.

He does not, however, notices the space helmet in his bag from his “imaginary” time travels.

I want to know, these color scripts, are they used as some sort of thumbnails for the color schemes of a scene? Maybe you can explain more about it to me.

I'm curious since I was wondering if it's a good idea to use this ''technique'' to get an idea of what colors to use in an illustration.

yes, they're mainly for color schemes, and to tell the mood of the story in a "story script". (ex. when he goes into the future there are more bright and unnatural colors used that indicate a high tech world. modern day or older have more natural colors)
