Five Things You Didn't Know About the New Avatar1. Making The Legend of Korra requires hundreds of artists in three different countries. In addition to the artists at the Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, Calif., we collaborated with Studio Mir in South Korea. They handled designing characters and backgrounds as well as all the animation and compositing for the first season. We also worked with a studio in India called Technicolor. It handled the CG vehicle models — all the cars, airships, and other CG vehicles. But even though we use computers to help us make the show, all the animation of the characters and bending effects are still hand-drawn.Five Things You Didn't Know About the New Avatar3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. The character of Korra's polar bear-dog, Naga, was actually created ten years ago. When we were developing the original series back in 2002, Bryan had done a sketch of a bipedal polar bear-dog creature. We never found a place for it in Avatar: The Last Airbender. But when we came up with Korra's character, we wanted her to have an animal mode of transport and revisited tha

The official dates are: July 21st to July27th
Don't worry about time zones, we're cool with that
But we're letting you know now so you fans can pick the themes this time! As you know, you usually get to suggest themes but last year we had to get on with Dalek Week 2013 before we ran out of 2013!
That was quite fun, actually.

Day 1: Little Alek and Deryn(childhood)
Day 2: Genderbend
Day 3: Fairy Tales
Day 4: Music
Day 5: Good Morning
Day 6: Highschool(or)College

When escapists grow up: Casual VacancyTomorrow morning, I'm getting on a train that will take me through a tunnel from my home land back to my home in London, and even though I am a digital reading designer and could download the file right this instant, only once I get off the train in twelve hours, I'll buy a brand new JKR book at the WHSmith in King's Cross/St Pancras, and I'll walk past Platform 9 3/4 on my way to the tube and give it a wink, just because, and all the way down to south of the Thames, I will stroke the spine, and smell the pages, and scan the blurbs and look at the choice of typeface and I'll drop my suitcase at my flat in Brixton, where I now live twelve years after the first four Potter Books first planted the idea of London into my teenaged head and a drawing pencil into my hand and then head to my favourite coffee shop and read all day and probably a bit into the night until I've finished it and, chances are everything will be pretty damn fine in Dorkania.When escapists grow up: Casual Vacancy3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Good Luck on your projects!!!
FailureWell, this is awkward.Failure3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?
Korra: Making of a Legend on NicktoonsI would like to point out this new information to all of you find people:Korra: Making of a Legend on Nicktoons3 years ago in Personal More Like This
“After the finale, The Legend of Korra fans can learn more about the mythology and creation of this franchise by tuning into the "Nicktoons" “Korra: Making of a Legend” special event from July 9 – July 20 during which all twelve episodes from Season 1, Book 1 will air weekdays at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Each “creators cut” episode offers insight into the creation of the stunning imagery, mythology and storyline where series creators and executive producers, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, provide commentary.”
Sounds great! But if you don’t have Nicktoons it will be posted up in a journal when someone record it and put it online; that way people who don’t have Nicktoons and or live outside the U.S can watch it too.

I hope you are having a Merry Christmas! And a wonderful holiday, no matter what you celebrate! I got sick for Christmas, haha. But I got to see family and eat wonderful food. My nephew is getting so big! I can't believe it's been more than 3 months since he was born

My Progression as an Animator at DisneyA friend of mine is writing a book on animation fundamentals and asked me for a "paragraph or two" (which I can't do) on the subject of timing. I considered it and ended up writing about my progression of learning while a Disney animator in the traditional animation days. It was good therapy for me to really think this through and consider the order of things. I hope you enjoy it. "Like" or "fav" this so others will see it too.

My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft
Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.
When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating. 10 years? That's FOREVER! I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years! I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so-
Korra, Book 2 Update this week's EpisodeBill Rinaldi (Martial Arts Coordinator / Videographer / Production Coordinator/ and Doorman) just updated us on what is happening on book 2 of Korra. They have finished ten episode storyboards of Book 2, and are now working on the Season Finale. They said season, not series by the way. They are really coming together fast on season two. We will see something on Book 2 later in the year. But right now, one thing that is important to all of us is that if we really would like a BOOK 3. Then, we need to show Nick that we love Korra, and we want more. If the show does well then maybe. Keep up the blogging, the E-mailing, the fanart, the re-watching of old episode, the phone calls to nickelodeon asking for more. If they see that we want more, they will give it to us. So, keep it up.Korra, Book 2 Update this week's Episode3 years ago in Personal More Like This
About this week's Episode.
There will be ONE episode this week. And NO new episodes the week after because of Memorial Day Weekend. It will be a repeat.
I feel like I'm always asking for prayersIf you live in the United States I bet you've seen the High Park fire on the news.I feel like I'm always asking for prayers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you live where I do, I bet you've seen the High Park fire out your window.
For those of you who don't know, the High Park fire started on Saturday morning around 6am and was reported as a 2 acre fire (probably caused by lightning). Today (Wednesday) it's at 46,000 acres and still growing. It was 0% contained until today, and now it's 10% contained, which everyone is really excited about. It's not much, but it's something!
On Saturday night, I was driving my boyfriend Phil to his home up in the foothills and we could see the glow and the flames over the mountains. On Sunday, I helped his family evacuate their home. They're staying with me, and we're SO THANKFUL that as of last night their house is still standing!! It's a miracle, the fire came within thirty feet of their home and the flames licked the back of their wood shed.
My horse was evacuated safely, as

it RAINED! we got rain and now the fire is (the last i heard) 85% contained!!
sorry I took so long to get back. on Friday morning, my poor horse Hobbes was in SO much pain due to stomach ulcers. Not the most fun thing to wake up to a phone call saying your horse is not doing well.
but he made it through! it's been so stressful. it was awful because the pain would make his legs buckle, and to watch a horse that can't stand up... it's traumatizing! especially when he's your precious buddy we were able to treat him successfully and now we wait to see how he'll do over the coming weeks.
ALL I WANT IS A STRESS-FREE WEEKEND, IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK???
you guys are amazing. there will be art again, I swear!

Some people who evacuated from the fire burning near me (which, btw, is now 87,000 acres) went down south, and have now been evacuated again due to this fire.
My grandparents evacuated their neighborhood. It's so weird to think about... their area is SO heavily populated; I mean, they are in the middle of the city. I feel like I just don't even know what's going on.
Everything's chaos right now.
Interview with Dante Basco on CraveOnlineHere are the answers relevant to Avatar and Korra:Interview with Dante Basco on CraveOnline3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What’s going on with “The Legend of Korra?”
We just started the new season, I think third or fourth episode. I have a role in it and I’m always proud to be a part of the “Avatar” family. Everything is hush-hush with it always. I’d get yelled at for even talking about it but I’m excited. I love the new show. I think they did a great job and I can’t wait to see how the fans take to it.
Is that a great way to revisit a world and play different characters in it?
Yeah, totally. It’s one of those things to be a part of, like the Star Wars thing. Or Harry Potter, to be a part of something that was phenomenal in its own way, a world that someone creator or these guys created. No one was
