In color correction suites they have these cool scopes and mini monitors that look like something you’d find in a vintage submarine. Usually the patterns that appear on them are indiscernible, but if an image of a face is particularly clear and contrasty a ghostly visage will emerge. Here is such an image appearing in the RGB parade on the waveform monitor of the Book 3 villain.

I love this Book 3 still of my hero, Lin Beifong, from Studio Mir’s animation of a storyboard panel by supervising producer Lauren Montgomery.

This Book 3 still seems like a good one for the caption game.

It’s great to be back in Seoul visiting our friends at Studio Mir. Here are some exquisite original animation drawings of Wan and Tahno framed in their lobby gallery.

Congratulations to the Korra design team members for taking home the Annie Award for Production Design in TV for Book 2 Chapter 10 “A New Spiritual Age”! From left to right in the top photo, skipping Mike and me: Angela Sung (background design), Christine Bian (prop design), William Nanqing Niu (background design), Emily Tetri (background paint), and Frederic Stewart (background paint). And congratulations to the other designers who worked on this special episode: Sylvia Filcak-Blackwolf (color stylist), Christie Tseng (character design), Angela Song Mueller (character design), and Lauren Zurcher (background paint). Every day I am blown away by their talent, dedication, and enthusiasm, so it is nice to see the animation community recognize their work as well.

The deeper we get into the Korra production, the more horizontal Joaquim’s posture gets in animatic meetings.

Pretty much immediately after we made Naga, a staggering number of people suggested we should make a Pabu… and due to some late supplies, for a change we had a little spare time. This guy was a good exercise in ‘okay now make that 37% cuter. No, cuter than that even. Cuter. DANGEROUSLY CUTE.’.

Straight up cute isn’t necessarily something we do often (we’re weird, and like ugly/grumpy/monstrous things) so this was a bit of a departure.
Also a little tough to paint something 3-dimensional in a style that aped the animation…. but tough in a good way.

Like Naga, Pabu is articulated using ball and socket joints, from head to tail to toe. He’s a little under two feet long, so I THINK he’s roughly to scale. His head and feet are hand sculpted, then painted and sealed and assembled with his faux fur body.

We don’t often keep things, but Pabu is going to stay with us, and if all goes well, should be the perfect accessory to Bones’ costume for Costume Con in April.

Pabu and his design for those not in the know, are from a show we highly recommend you check out, The Legend of Korra.

Cute stuff! I really like the pose in the second pic.

A few recent Book 4 animatic sketches that had us laughing for several minutes. Ryu drew that Meelo, and I’m not sure who drew the bison initially but Mel put those eyes on it for some unknown reason. I’m glad he did.
