More beautiful animation- I love how she twists as she takes off that rock pillars’ top.
There were some insane awesome shots in both episodes and great choreography for the action sequences.
This whole exterior action sequence between Korra and Zaheer is co-executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos’ storyboarding/fight choreography masterpiece, especially the 20-plus-second continuous flying shot. It was a herculean undertaking, and he had some help cleaning up a few of the scenes by Owen Sullivan (on this one) and Shaun O’Neil. If you didn’t already know it, Joaquim is a force of nature when it comes to action animation!
I am SO proud of this sequence! It was a TON of work for all involved but looking at this final product I think we can all agree that the juice was worth the squeeze. Remember this is “TV animation” folks….. So many stars aligned to make not only this sequence but this entire series possible. From the writing to the acting to the design to the boards through the final animation and last but not least the amazing sound fx and score! Not sure when we’ll get another one like it.
Excuse me while I geek out a bit.
The people who work on this show are Monsters!! And I mean that in the BEST way! Not only do they keep setting the bar for Action Cartoons, but they keep raising it to insane levels! I truly hope I get to work on a show that has this level of action and awesomeness one day.
Oh and Joaquim Dos Santos is my animation/storyboarding Hero!
Wow! I haven’t made a post in ages!! Here. Have a quick Evil Ryu doodle I did at work. I really need to get back into the swing of things
I kinda went on a Post-it drawing spree the other day! Firebending is and always will be, my favourite bending art. Anything that let’s me do flaming uppercuts (Shoryuken!!) or shoot lightning from my finger tips like a Sith Lord is awesome in my books!
Oh! And that last doodle is just me taking a jab at my friend since she loves Waterbending so much! :p
Just a Chun Li doodle I did this morning while watching some anime. Makes me wish we had some more high quality Street Fighter anime. Ideally done by an awesome studio like Bones, Trigger or Studio Mir. Get on that Capcom!

God I miss this show!
DUDES!!! That Mortal Kombat X trailer was so Hype!! I’m so happy the next-gen current-gen consoles are starting to get more fighting games! Here’s hoping we get a brand new Street Fighter and Tekken in 2015 as well!
I gotta say, I like how this chibi-scorpion doodle came out! I was having one of those “nothing I draw looks right” kinda nights, so I’m glad I was able to salvage it. Now I can sleep and have sweet dreams of Scorpion beating the shit out of people! :D
Showin’ Cyclops some love, since the movies keep shitting on him! He used to be my favorite X-man when I was a kid!
Could you imagine, what a 3rd person action survival game, that takes some of the best stuff about The Last of Us, and adds a bunch of X-Men lore to it, would be like? Because I did, and it would be Awesome!!
Just swap Joel and Ellie with Logan and one of his surrogate daughters (in this case, Jubilee). Replace the Cordyceps Fungal Infection with the Legacy Virus, OR the Techno-Organic Virus, for some awesome Tech-oriented infected. You can have some Sentinels, that attack anything with a life signature outside the safezones. OH! You can also have the Fireflies be replaced with the remnants of the Brotherhood of Mutants, desperately looking for a cure to the disease!
Hmmm…someone get Marvel and Naughty Dog on the line! Lol!
All joking aside though, I had so much fun messing around with this idea. Trying to come up with realistic clothing for Jubilee and the girls that echoed the design of their regular costumes was a lot of fun. Anyways, I’m definitely gonna revisit this after I’m done the drawing challenge. Just 3 more days till Days of Future Past hits theatres!
