These are some bg's I did for my college film, a short in the style of the 'Batman Animated' cartoon show that was made during the nineties. It's by far my favourite cartoon of all time, and my favourite version of Batman ever. I decided to 'homage'(ie rip off) the style of the show in my short, as we could use any style we wanted. I majored in Layout and Storyboarding, so I had a great year of drawing up about twenty of these kind of layouts, drawn in pen and ink and then coloured up in photoshop. I then threw 30 seconds of shoddy animation over it! The stuff is a pretty poor attempt at the brilliance of the actual show, but I did get the odd nice shot or two from it. Now that I look at it, the pan is pretty reminiscant of a bunch of shots from the actual show. Guess I'm easily 'influenced'...
P.S. Nobody besides myself and the college lecturers have ever actually seen the complete short, and nobody ever will!
