James Bonds by ArkadeBurt

I prefer the upper row consisting of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, and Roger Moore. You can find more of his work here.



How the effects in the new James Bond film SKYFALL were created

Plenty of spoilers abound, so I recommend checking it out after you’ve already seen the film. If you haven’t seen the new film, what are you waiting for? Honestly, it is the best overall Bond film since Octopussy in the 1980s. There are also plenty of homages for the longtime Bond fan who has seen all 22(or 23 if you include Never Say Never Again) films in the saga.
