Real live boards
Tom Owens' work, from one of his storyboards for "Over the Hedge". Just as a geek production note: the numbers at lower right represent the sequence and the individual panel; i.e., this is from sequence 1831, drawing 1259
Dreamworks has done something interesting in conjunction with the release of "Over The Hedge": they've actually posted a bit of visual development and a few storyboard examples, which you can see here. And the art is attributed, which little detail has me grinning broadly in the general direction of the publicity department. I wish the boards were more than the few panels they are, but hey--small caveat; it's as far as I know fairly unprecedented to release this sort of thing before the DVD comes out(if then). It's a good thing.
