Saw this on Tumblr. I don't know if it's vintage or what. Here for Marty if he has a use for it.
Couple of squiggles I revisited after my painful viewing of Thor. I like the surprise ending. Not the Nick Fury part. The part where it says "Directed by...Kenneth Branagh!" Final Storyboard Freelance Project

I could really pile on with everything wrong with John Carter. But since it's better than 4.5 Star Wars, what's the point. The main thing it doesn't do is set the hook and yank you through a story.
I thought these guys were Tharks on my first viewing. Now I see the difference. They are Green Men of Warhoon. More primitive, four armed creatures, possessing no firearms.

And I just received good news--they like it! It's into the second round of consideration...along with 93 other proposals (out of 470 some odd...). They say they'll only be able to publish 15-20 of these. They've never done a
The bad part is, my sample chapter is terrible. In trying to get my ideas together and research the subject, I barely got anything down. Out of the 24 pages I'd planned, I was only able to get a dozen on the page--and only a few of those anywhere beyond pencils. And they're very confused! Ugh.
But this is the interesting thing: even with this major impediment, I think two things really helped me: (1), I had a decent idea, (and one with a very readable outline attached to it--so I made it easy for them to imagine what the finished book would contain); but more importantly, (2) they had an extensive list of submission requirements (essay answers to favorite books in the series, what books currently in the market place would be most like mine? how would mine differ? what is your marketing plan for the book? etc., along with the usual CV stuff--and my CV was very weak, never having published either a comic or regular book before, having no university degree, and not being at all involved in the music/music criticism world (this is all for a semi-academic book series that's primarily authored by music critics, music professors, and famous writers/musicians (Jonathan Lethem being the latest...))) and in answering these essay/marketing questions, I think I was able to make a reasonably professional impression. This is probably what kept me off the reject heap--at least for the first round.

"Finished" this page. Needs balloons and all. But I'll revisit after I have the main art all finished. Back to my storyboards for a final revision. That has been a fun collaboration. Got high praise. I want more of that work.
Moby Games it says summer 1995. I have no idea where it was taken. Who took it. Or why. Kind of a trip to find it.
And Then I found... All submitted by the same "göbbi"I wonder who he-she is?
