Matilda The Professional by OhSadface Matilda The Professional by OhSadface
Here is part 1 of 3 of my final for Advanced storyboarding.

We basically had to watch The Professional (aka Leon) and make up 3 Pre-Vis boards for a sequel starring Natalie Portman revising her role as older Matilda who is now a cleaner.

I think this is gonna end up being the best in the bunch but who knows, I really like how this came out.

I used this photo to work from for the skyline [link] and for the sniper rifle i used a google sketchup model as reference.


I like how she looks like Meg Griffin the Professional lol XD

Excellent job. I like your style. But there's just one problem. According to Leon, "the closer you get to being a pro, the closer you get to the client." Sorry if I ruined it for you, but it's still a great pic.

Yeah, so? That doesn't mean that professionals don't use sniper riffles at all. And I don't think that Matilda would be that good when it comes to knifes- she wouldn't be very strong, being a woman. :shrug:

Good point. Some jobs call for being as far from your target as possible.

I'm just going by the fact that in that one scene she showed a lot of interest in the sniper rifles.

Yeah. I think she was just eager to start training, but whatever.

Lol see the problem with transporter 2 and three is they were ridiculous and taking themselves seriously....if it didn't then it would be cool like the Crank movies, they totally did take it seriously XD

Grrr. This looks awesome. Nitpicking, I think you should add the indication of the other eye. But that is just me.

I redrew the eye like 7000 times and it never came out right so it was like "fuck it!!!" XD but thanks for the suggestion!

Awesome! The composition works so well. The only thing I'd say though, is it seems the rifle disappears slightly into the background. Not sure if that was intentional but I guess it could be fixed with a few more highlights?
