No rest

Looks like work will be labour intensive until after American Thanksgiving. Possibly more afterwards too until the holidays. Never underestimate surprises!

And I've got a Flight Explorer story to get through too. Ouch. I may need help with the colours for that one.

I'll probably end up regretting the two days I'll lose this week for NYCC.
Or maybe not. Naaaaah, I won't. I'll end up cherishing the little break.
Looking forward to return to the east coast!

Sad though that I won't be seeing the parents until Christmas.



It really hit me this week.
In a year from now, the movie I'm working on still won't be done. It is supposed to be out November 2012.
2 effin' years.

Korra will be out before that, with a total run time longer than the film!

Jack Frost, you're a lucky bastard that I don't mind drawing you.



Let him rest- who knows how much the story will change until he makes his entrance two years from now.
I should mention that I don't mind redoing-reworking scenes. Not at all! Up till now, it has always been for the better. May it keep going that way.

I'm already slightly worried at the sort of trailer we'll be getting for this project. I know it's silly to think about that right now. But seeing what was done with Megamind, and even Dragon at the beginning (except for the last trailer- they got a good vibe in the last theatrical trailer)...
Bah, I shouldn't stress about that right now. I've got a scene here that needs to be done first.
Let's see how much of it survives until the end. ;)

(I'm hesitating posting this image on DA, even though the project has been officially announced and there's one official image out)

yeah, I wouldn't worry about the trailer too much. I'll still go see it.
I'm excited about Dragon coming out on DVD soon. I only got to see it once in theaters due to my budget, but I'll prolly watching it 10 times in the first week of getting the DVD. ^__^


If you need help coloring the Flight story, I'd be happy to help. The pic of yours of Aang that I colored is still my most faved piece on DA. lolz.

Also, *squee* a little over a year until Korra. ^__^

Also looking foreard to Korra- one year isn't so bad of a wait. I expect (but can't confirm) sweet previews for San Diego comicon next year.

The Jack I draw is somewhat different from the design. We all draw him differently, ha ha! But that's okay: as long as he's recognisable, his model exists in 3D. We'll let the animators handle him.

Love the drawing! And it's good that scene rework is for the better, your hard work deserves it :3

And Flight story, yaaaay <3

Everyone on the team does reworks and tweaks and stuff. All part of the prod.
We all hope we do a good job with it in the end.

If Jack Frost is slacking off, does that mean the day's a bit warmer than it should be? XD
rufftoon

It's certainly warmer than usual around here for this time of year. Hmmm...

That explains it, then.

If you don't mind me asking, are you working on Korra as well? It sounded like you really loved working on ATLA but it also sounds like your really busy with Jack Frost sooooo....

And I guess you should just be glad you're not working on an old fashioned, all hand animated film, didn't those take four years to produce?

To my great sadness, I am not part of the Korra crew. I went with the Jack Frost project instead (there is not one single day where I don't bash my head upon the desk about that decision).
Not all the old crew could return on it- most of my ex colleagues are at other places, on other projects. I'm one of them too.

Surprisingly, a 3D animated film can take 2 to 3 years to make. This one with Jack Frost had been already in prod over a year ago, then they decided to make some changes and bring in a new crew.
At least, it shouldn't get as crazy as Dragons (reworked in one year).

Definitely looks like the best version of Jack Frost since the Rankin Bass movie, which is my all time favorite.

He can't possibly have the same charm as the Rankin Bass version.
But hopefully he'll have charm of his own.

Oooh trailers... More trouble than they're worth, I've found! It's a shame the release date is so far away, but then again, it's certainly something to look forward to!

It's so far away, I'll have to keep reminding people it exists, ha!
