Mononoke Hime
In 1980, Miyazaki did some rough image board art for a feature called Mononoke Hime [or Princess Mononoke]. The studios did not like the story and Miyazaki gave up on the idea. He would later revisit the script taking only certain ideas in his 1997 feature with the same name.

The image board was compiled and published in a 100 page book. I've only read about this book on nausicaa.net [Link here] but never saw the images from the book until recently.

Apparently someone posted up the images from the book along with the loose translation. It's an interesting read to what could have been Miyazaki's first original major feature film: http://ghiblicon.blogspot.com/2008/03/mo...azaki.html
