How is that half ass? It contains all the information it needs to contain.

Steve Skrose is probably the best storyboard artist I have seen! His stuff looks like finished comic book panels! Whoever did the chicken scratch here is a lazy artist!

@TankD- Storyboards are just references. They are not supposed to be beautiful works of high-art.
webheaded - 12/29/2012, 11:37 AM
@TankD Half-assed? I don't think you understand how storyboards work, kid. TDKR was a spectacle to behold.

I bought a collected edition of the scripts, and it has the airplane hijack scene storyboard, freakin great man.

Just looked in the book... A lot different... I don't know how to post pictures from my phone or I would.

As in from my camera

Looks pretty good to me. A lot of people say storyboards are like a comic, which they are.
Bandido - 12/29/2012, 12:33 PM
That's actually pretty cool! Nice find @nailbiter111
Parker2017 - 12/29/2012, 12:33 PM
those are soem greast detialed story boards :p

@TankD, i'm a storyboard artist and i can garantee you: they're fine! Cinematic storyboards aren't supposed to be like comic books. They're decoupage of intentions and camera angles, not design.

Thank you nailbiter! Those bad boys went directly to my references folder! ;-)

He looks like a friend of Tobias Funke and Barry Zuckercorn.

@nailbiter, at the moment i'm working in TV cartoons for kids, as 'My Big Big Friends' [Discovery kids] and 'Sitio do Picapau Amarelo' [Cartoon Network Latin America].

Say what you want about TDKR but Bane's voice is one of the most entertaining things in the history of movies.

"It would be extremely painful....for you."
ToddDamian - 12/29/2012, 4:59 PM
Not bad, not bad at all.
Parker2017 - 12/29/2012, 5:00 PM
@PapaMidnight Thats pretty awesome! good luck to you on your story boarding (cause its always fun to do story boards)

I love how detail these are and how really awesoem they look.

Pretty nice stuff, nice find nail.
AUSSYACE - 12/29/2012, 7:44 PM
How about some body art instead...

mgeoff88 - 12/29/2012, 8:57 PM
Those storyboards are great.

I don't want to sound like a broken record here, but Bane's mask there is a lot better than what we got in TDKR.

@PapaMidnight That's great! Good luck with your career and everything. If you keep working hard, one day you could be doing storyboards for big-budget CBMs like TDKR. :)

Katy Perry is so beautiful...
monkeyhead78 - 12/30/2012, 7:09 AM
It has to be said, as an opening sequence that plane scene was amazing! and possibly one of my favourite quotes 'Now's not the time for fear..........that comes later'

I think I'll stick the film on now and watch it (again)
brickwall - 12/30/2012, 12:48 PM
Great Movie. Great Trilogy. Encore....
PapaEmeritus - 12/30/2012, 12:52 PM
@mgeoff and @Parker - thank you very much, guys! Work in a CBM would be a dream come true!
