What's happenin'





Not much happening really:
Went to a most wonderful wedding this weekend. Congrats again to Kazu and Amy. Much love, and much happiness for all eternity.
I did take a few pics...but they are kinda weak, compared by those taken by the others. May upload at some point.

Went and survived through another Storyboard thumbnail pitch. A lot of small changes, with a few drawings surviving as is. One of the idea I pitched was waaaaay too far fetched. I'll probably post it after the episode airs.
One of our meetings today happened outside! That was so nice and relaxing, and warm. Good thing, the AC in the office worked full blast and I was freezing despite wearing two shirts. Brrr!

I need to do more Avatar drawings, as prizes for that contest I held on DA. Actually, one of the request has sparked this whole small comic idea. Dang it, now I want to draw the whole thing!

Quote of the day, from Giancarlo: "Make it make sense"

Reposting something I had put on DA- personal construction notes about avatar characters.

Just various little notes about character construction. These are my own, and in no way official.

[insert generic but heartfelt squee for art, and the humor, and the expressions, and the doodle]

Katara and Aang have similar headshapes, when you take off her hair? Huh! The hair-thingies had distracted me...

I selfishly hope that you get the time to at least sketch the comic idea. O:>

I am fascinated that the storyboarders get to, well, suggest ideas -- actual plot embellishments or ways to present the script visually or...? (I know about as much as... seeing Disney and Shrek "making of" trailers. So probably slightly more than my cats do, since they don't watch TV with me much.)

Actually, Katara's head shape is slightly longer, while Aang is rounder and Toph rounder still; she still has "baby cheeks", heehee.

I will most definitely sketch the comic idea: it is part of the artist's prize. And I get to get it out of my head.

Storyboard artist most definitely need to add visual elements to the script to be able to tell the story. When a writer simply puts a line like: "all ninja like, they enter a random camp and kick butts"...you gotta be able to add up and build up around it.

the perfection needed to be an animator scares me so!
But I love seeing these :D

And outdoor meetings are great!

I don't know if I would call it perfection...or obsession, heehee.
Outdoor meetings in good weather are the best. Less stressful, and as productive. At least, we were.
Oh, still working on that story pitch. They may team me up with a writer to work it out better.

EEEEEE!!
I hope you'll pardon my random fangirling, but everything you draw and sketch is love and win and stylistically of awesome.

and much cute how you describe Toph as having "babycheeks" >3< *squees of cute*

Especially love the "Doodle of the Day"

You're too kind *blushes*
I can't say that stylistically it is always good, but I try.
I must must try and do more Iroh stories. Perhaps that is something we could possibly collaborate on at some point- for you have the knack of putting a lot of heart and emotion in stories (me, I can't stay serious. Drat!)

Iroh stories rawk!

And a potential collab idea in the future would be sheer joy plus awesome, to work on something like that!

my "knack" for it, is more out of remembering copious amounts of old anime that I watched years ago and reading a lot of samurai manga XP.

AND BAH, you put just as much heart and emotion plus humor and MORE in your stories, thusly why it works well and harmonizes with the skill of your art!
