Adam Hughes' Nite Owl
Titan Books has provided Newsarama with an exlcusive look inside Watchmen: The Art of the Film book which (according to the publisher): explores the evolution of the movie’s look, revealing scores of production
designs and stunning set photos, costume sketches, original storyboards and
other pieces of conceptual art. Filled with unique characters and layer upon
layer of arresting detail, Watchmen is a triumph of design; and this
hardback volume, a lavish celebration of a comic book made real, offers a unique
look into the genesis of that design work.
The same here, Adam Hughes concept design for Nite Owl II. Early - early in the stages of development of the film, Hughes, John Cassaday and other comic book artists were asked to contribute their vision to the project - in fact, Newsarama reported it back in 2006.
How much of the concepts were used will ultimately be seen by audiences in the screen, but many sketches and designs can be found in The Art of the Film. The book is due in stores on February 10th.
