Do yourself a favor and watch this :)
I don't know if anyone here has ever watched or followed Feng Zhu but this video I found particularly useful and thought it was worth sharing. It does tilt a bit towards video game design, which is primarily what Feng Zhu's school focuses on, but there is a lot of really solid info here for illustrators that has to do with thinking through environments and characters that helps build story narrative. I think a lot of those principals bleed through.
It's a bit long at like an hour and half, but worth it imo.

Thank you for sharing this. At first I was like I'll listen while I draw, but I didn't get much drawing done. great information. Especially, the Fundamentals, bas, set dressing, and the story telling. Thank you.
@dafoota Lol yeah I did the same thing. I kept having to look back up and realized I hadn't drawn anything
