    tyboogie VS Dan Milligan -update- FEB 10th

    Ok here we go. Ty has suggested that the classic 10th century epic Beowulf be our topic… This of course requires me read this piece of work. Being one who’s always looked at reading as a bit of a fad, and thus a slow and poor reader, advantage Tyboogie. Then, just when I’m thinking what a creep Ty is. He suggested we produce a storyboard and key production frame from any part of the story. Hey man that’s my backyard, -advantage Milligan.

    Topic: Beowulf

    To Produce and deliver on time:

    1 8-12 frame storyboard sequence color or white & black (any scene)
    1 full color key frame or character study (artist choice)

    Peace
    Dan

    evildan--i dont need luck--i just need to find that genetically enhanced drawing serum i seem to have misplaced *goes and digs through garage* muhahaha


    there are a number of translations out there, and some are more of a struggle than others

    the most user friendly version (i.e. up to date modern english) that i have found is this one

    http://www.lone-star.net/literature/beowulf/


    but the books out there are good too--if your really passionate about it you could read a couple versions--and i believe they have a cliff notes version which s really cool too

    ill post work as i do it --itll be a few weeks tho before i start

    I hope you don't mind if I suggest supplemental reading:

    Michael Crichton wrote a book called "the Eaters of the Dead" which was an account of Beowulf and Grendel from the point of view of an arabian scribe who accompanied them. This book was made into the Antonio Banderas movie "the 13th Warrior" which was just ok. Try to find the copy of the book with black and white illustrations by Ian Miller, as they are most excellent.

    WHOA! Ian miller illustrated "Eaters of the Dead"? I MUST FIND THAT!

    Great topic BTW, I absolutely love Beowulf. I illustrated several scenes from it as an assignment back in college, so I will be interested to see your interpretations!

    Good luck guys!

    ok, now I'm pissed cause I can't find my copy of the Eaters of the Dead.

    I did find my copy of A Tolkien Bestiary which has lots of Ian Miller illustrations that are very similar.

    I don't want to hijack your thread more than it is already, so here's a link to the image file:

    If you want a good hardcopy of the book with an excellent translation, check out the edition translated by Seamus Heaney. It's not expensive, and is a good read. It also has the Old English on the page opposite of the translation, which is kinda cool. This is the second translation I have read (both that I read having been recommended by proffessors), and I liked this one best.
