Hey all! The last post was holiday related. This is not. I've had this Batman project stewing for years now. My friend and I basically re-invent the Batman universe as a TV show, adapting comic stories for seasonal arcs, plotting long term character arcs, and reworking characters to create an interconnected and believable world. Most of our discussions start with "How in the hell would we make ____ a cool character?
For example, Poison Ivy is kind of lame. She's a botanist who turns evil when she gets plant powers. The only thing she's got going for her, honestly, is how freekin hot she is.
But we though "Ok, she basically becomes an eco-terrorist, right? What if she's a low level operative of the League of Shadows, a major eco-terrorist group in the Batman Mythology?" We do that kind of thing for pretty much every character. If we ever get to tell this story, you'll be amazed at how awesome Killer Moth's 9 season story arc is.
Anyhoo, from time to time I draw characters from this universe, trying to figure out exactly what it'd look like. I've been on a graphic-style kick lately, so here's what Killer Croc might look like in this world.
Next post will probably be art I've done for Christmas gifts. We'll see. I havent really started any of it...
Hello my three followers and those who somehow find your way here!
For years this has been specifically storyboards, acting as an online portfolio. But then I said "wait, you HAVE one of those on daportfolio.com!" So I'm re-purposing this blog to showcase my awesome artwork! And only the AWESOME STUFF. Check my DA for the other...
Anyway, here's some of what I've been up to lately:
And since I want to storyboard, here is a little board sample I did:
Anyhoo, I hope to be updating this at least once a week, hopefully more!
Hey guys! I'm still working out the best way to present my storyboard work. Here are some deviantART links to high res "strips" of panels. They're WIP, but I wanted to share what I've got until they're done! Feedback is always welcome!
Hey guys! Here's part of the scene I did for Rad Sechrist's storyboarding class. At the time I assembled these pages (I applied to Dreamworks) I had not finished the scene. I'll post the rest when I assemble the pages.
A side note, I've been assured that the scene reads and makes sense when each panel is viewed full screen, but I'm worried that some of the subtleties that hold it together will be lost at this size, so please look at the pages as big as possible.
So, here's some setup, since my scene is scene 04.
The project is called "The Haunting of Science Falls." The story is about Max, who has been raised believing that science can explain all, and that there is nothing more important that advancement of technology. His journey forces him to reconsider these teachings and to find the value in all life.
He lives in a stuck up, science oriented town that's just about reached their energy producing capacity and must find a new power source. Max is the son of the head-hancho of the scientific community, and he very much wants to live up to that name.
The town denies anything and everything that can't be explained by science, but early on we meet a group of curious ghosts from a town deep in the forest.
In this scene Max is working late in to the night, trying to figure out why his power-source machine doesnt work.
From here, Max basically tries to capture the ghost, and chases her around the room. She escapes from the room by bursting out the window, but she leaves behind some ectoplasm. When it's discovered, it sends the plot hurling forward.
I hope you enjoyed, and dont hesitate to give me feedback!
