I was never as big a fan of the movie as most people seem to be but for those that like it you really couldn't ask for a better print. This is incredibly well done.

Some comments from Mark, Adam and WIP shots. Copied from Odd City thread.

Both of us geeked out about certain parts of the movie and what should be included in the piece and I always know that if he was telling me to change something it was from a design point of view and for the benefit of the peice overall. that's something when you are an artist and you are staring at a picture for 3 days straight, I mean, like ONE CORNER of a picture for 3 days straight, sometimes you need someone to help you with the bigger picture, and he knew what he was doing. so thank you Adam, best art director (well, the ONLY) art director I've worked with yet.
My pleasure Mark :pint:

I've always loved the film and was thrilled to help out. Since we're both big Nimh fans, Mark and I really wanted to do it justice. Anytime an artist makes a poster based on an animated property, there's a delicate balance to remain true to the original art and still inject their own style. We wanted many of the characters represented, and just as importantly wanted to nail the feel of the movie. Electricity is a theme and is represented. One of our favorite scenes is the epic Justin/Jenner duel and we wanted that front and center, as well as Mrs. Brisby and her iconic amulet. Mark spent a lot of time on the expressions and the detail and it should impress in person.

Here's some sketches and progress shots:

The owl in the top left corner looks VERY similar to Uncle Dukey in Rock-A-Doodle. Hm, Neat.

It's been awhile since I've seen the movie but when you put them side by side the owl in the print looks much more sinister. :shock:

this movie scared the fudge outta me when i was younger, but i loved it! the animation was amazing for the time and the story is fantastic!...surprised so many people never saw it. i probably shoulda bought one....oh well, maybe the lack of interest in the movie will keep the aftermarket prices down and ill pick one up down the line.

Mark did a fantastic job on this print, it looks amazing! :clap:
