|Thor (2011) storyboards by Tom Nelson|
Thor: The Dark World is now a global hit. The US box office gross of Thor 2 is over $89 million this weekend. But it's never too late to look back at the film that started it all back in 2011. One of the most exciting scenes in the film is the attack on the Frost Giant world of Jutenheim. Storyboard artist Thomas "Tom" A. Nelson helped develop boards for the film and shared Thor storyboards and Thor concept art on his YouTube Channel TomNelsonStoryboard and site http://www.tomnel.net.
Nelson is a professional concept and storyboard artist who's worked on Hollywood projects like Thor: The Dark World (2013) The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) and Batman: The Animated Series (1995).
Check out the videos and the rest of the storyboards after the jump (click to enlarge).
Here's the animatic of Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) Arrival at Jotunheim with Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) and the Warriors Three - Fandral (Joshua Dallas), Volstagg (Ray Stevenson) and Hogun (Tadanobu Asano).
Here's the animatic of Thor's Leaving Jotunheim and Odin's (Anthony Hopkins) attack. Notice that Odin was originally supposed to lay the smackdown on the Ice Giants. Can you smell what Odin's cooking?!
