ECHIDNA'S BROOD Storyboard
Ray Harryhausen is not only my favorite animator and a legend among monster-movie lovers, he's actually also a master draftsman and concept artist. Unknown to most fans, Harryhausen actually storyboarded all of his own animations, and did them beautifully. I refer you all to the excellent The Art of Ray Harryhausen for further reading about this genius of cinema magic.
These boards were an attempt to visualize an action sequence, much in the manner of the classic fantasy/adventure/monster films that Harryhausen made so great.
