Ryu drew that!
Early development artwork for Ikki, Tenzin’s daughter and Aang’s granddaughter. An Airbender as well, Ikki is very hyper and inquisitive.
This is amazing! Especially the Bolin guy’s hair. (Sorry I’m not linking the actual source of this. The photo was emailed to me.)
Here we were finalizing an animatic for Colin Heck’s first episode as a director on Book 2 of Korra. I was testing out a new prime lens and I liked the shots. Nothing exciting… A lot of times we just sit there looking at stuff.
the right one looks like old Aang
Ian Graham and I have worked together for many years, starting back in our formative days on the insane production of Invader Zim. He was a storyboard artist on all three seasons of Avatar, then he came back as storyboard supervisor on Book 1 of Korra, and now he is a director on Book 2. Here are some shots from the animatic meeting of one of his episodes, along with some of his storyboard panels. He and I share a big passion for Gainax, as evidenced by his Gurren Lagann shirt. Ian is an incredibly hard worker, known for rolling into the studio at 4:00 AM on a regular basis. He’s a big part of our animation family. You can check out lots of great work from his career on his DeviantArt page here.
Ha ha ha, nice! Yeah, I wouldn’t know how to put these GIFs together. I had to have my 21-year-old assistant designer help me upload the GIF yesterday in the first place.
Bryan uses himself as a reference= perfection.
–Wow! Thanks, everybody! I’m really glad you like the art.
–Ha ha, some people just see what they want to see, I guess. Korra is not wearing Mako’s scarf, nor his jacket. Look more closely at her costume, and Mako’s.
–The finale on June 23 is the Book 1 finale (episodes 111 & 112). But first,…
They’re great… and will be just greater as teenagers/adults.
