Warner Brothers Batman Animated TV Series, Episode /"Off Balance" (Day 3)

I am doing a serialized post of my storyboard for the Batman: The Animated Series, episode 406 550, entitled “Off Balance”. I did this storyboard, I believe, in 1991, and it was aired on November 23, 1992 as the 44th  episode. I boarded most of Act 1, part of Act 2 and most of Act 3.

Looking at this artwork again, after 25 years, I’m struck by the resemblance to Jesse Marsh in his Tarzan Comics for Dell and Gold Key. I was unaware of Marsh at the time; I thought I was emulating Alex Toth, filtered through the TV series design sensibility (which was heavily influenced by Alex Toth). I wish I had been able to work the freshness and spontaneity of this ink treatment I had stumbled onto here into my comic book artwork; I really like it.
