Today I thought I'd share some storyboards from Terminator 2. They were published in the now out-of-print book Terminator 2: Judgment Day- The Book of the Film- An Illustrated Screenplay (Applause Screenplay Series).
Director James Cameron is a respected artist in his own right and has done concept design and storyboards for many of his films.
The storyboards here are actually from Philip Norwood (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, TRON: Legacy, The Abyss) and Steve Burg (Prometheus, Star Trek: The Motion Picture) who worked with director Jim Cameron and visual effects supervisor John Bruno developing all the visual effects story boards.
Check out the rest of the images after the jump. Keep in mind some images are duplicates of others, but I didn't want to cut any of the pages up. Click on the pics to enlarge.
"These preliminary storyboards, drawn by Steve Burg, Philip Norwood, and John Bruno, depict the destruction of Skynet from the point of view of the beleaguered human' soldiers In the original Future War sequence. A wounded soldier is about to be blown away by a terminator endoskeleton; we cut close to see the light fade from the it's [sic] red eyes as it prepares to fire, With Skynet destroyed all of the remote-controlled machines freeze up, the Flying HKs failing out of the sky."
