I thought I’d take this week to show off a bunch of storyboards that I worked hard on that, for one reason or another, was never used. In all these instances, I’m not upset or anything, but I did work hard on them, and I thought it would be cool, and perhaps educational, to share them.
Back on the Kick Buttowski storyboard test I posted, I mentioned that I also tested for Fanboy and Chum Chum in the same week. Well, here’s that Fanboy test! This is the test that got me my storyboard revisionist job on season 2 of Fanboy and Chum Chum that quickly became a full-on storyboard artist job. This was actually my second attempt at a storyboard test. I’d taken one for the first season, but with no results. This is a much looser, rougher test than I’d normally have turned in, but several first season Fanboy boards had appeared online by this point, and they were really rough and loose! Adapting to this feel worked in my favor. That must have weighed heavily, because there’s a lot that’s technically awkward and limited about this board.

Hi everyone! It’s a little late where I am, but there hasn’t been a lot of official posts lately, so I thought I would just say that I’m super excited to see all the round three entries. The progress shots and the doodles from ask blogs is so exciting. Keep it up!
There’s no actual news but… I’m really proud of all you guys! Hope everything is going well!

"Here is an interesting duo of images to compare, but I’m at a loss to describe how or why they came to be this way.
The top image is an inked and nearly finished comic cover by Gil Kane. It functions well as a cover ready for production—coloring, adding the issue #, price and DC logo. But it never went ‘beyond’ that stage (a pun that is stillborn) … but the bottom image is the same cover, rendered completely by Neal Adams, and made its way to the comic spinners where I bought it 42 years ago.
Okay, so why wasn’t Kane’s cover used, though you can see the title changed, and actually Neal Adam’s cover is better because the angle of the comet earth is more acute, aiming right for our intrepid moon men, and the angle of the scene puts them in more imminent danger. Was Kane’s rejected? But why not have him redraw it? A whole bunch of other meaningless questions come to mind, but all I know is—any answers might stagger the imagination and would come from … BEYOND the UNKNOWN!”
(thanks!!)(and you’re welcome?? :’0)
