osatosmind asked:

As a characther designer, how many drawings does it mostly takes till your boss or yourself are happy with the design? Cause what does it takes to make the design really work?

8!

Nah! Just kidding. It takes “as many drawings as it takes” to make your boss happy.

There’s no real formula here unfortunately, but I definitely feel that a strong art director is key to strong designs. Sometimes they will have a clear idea of what they want for a character (or better yet a sketch!) and sometimes they have no idea. Of course it’s always more fun to explore characters on your own. We’d all love to have weeks or even months noodling and exploring a character. But most productions (TV) are on very tight schedules and we need to nail down characters as quickly as we can. It helps to read scripts, backstories, etc to figure out who the character is before you start and asking questions as you go. I would often send a quick snapshot of what I was sketching to my art director whenever I felt uncertain of the direction I was going.

May I take a moment to congratulate you on P'Li's character design? Older lady who looks gorgeous, badass and dressed to kill all at the same time = SO RARE. Thank you. ;_;

Wow! I’m **blushing**!! That’s so sweet of you! I do my best to maintain myself. It gets harder every year and with 2 kids around it can be a challenge to remember to try to eat right, stay active and still get plenty rest. But I still attribute most of my anti-aging to the Korean half of my heritage. My mother still looks fantastic at 65…………………………….

……………..……….. you were talking about P’li weren’t you…?  =_=

Howdy, friends. As you have likely already heard, four episodes from Book 3 were leaked this past weekend. It is bad enough that it happened at all, but it would have been a little less of a disaster had it at least been the first four episodes of the season. Instead, the third through the sixth episodes popped out online, causing confusion and, at least on our end of things, frustration. As you all know, these episodes take a ton of concerted effort from scores of individuals. We craft these continuous storylines and the animation as best we can, and hope that they are presented in a way that allows everyone to enjoy them to the fullest. But when leaks happen, the work we meticulously prepared for the audience is fumbled unceremoniously.  

Nickelodeon is obviously a massive corporation with outlets all over the world. These outlets get the episodes in advance so they can translate and dub them for their markets. We typically deliver the episodes to the network quite close to their U.S. premieres, but in the case of Book 3, we have actually already finished the entire season as of last week. The network has some plans in the works for it and needs to wait on its release, so we have been keeping quiet while keeping our noses to the Book 4 grindstone. Unfortunately, the longer the episodes sit on all these shelves all over the world, the probability of leaks increases.

So, yeah… It is unfortunate it played out this way. Hopefully it won’t be too much longer before Book 3 is released properly and with respect to all the people who worked hard to make it and to the audience who wants to watch it.

Yup… sighhh…

We had a fun, impromptu lunch with *most* of the remaining Korra design team yesterday. After a long haul, we are in the home stretch with preproduction (design/color) on the Book 4 finale episodes. I’m going to miss these incredibly talented, friendly, and funny folks when we finish in a few short weeks. Left to right: Steve Hirt (clean up/add. prop & char. design), Christie Tseng (char. design), Melissa King (BG paint), William Nanqing Niu (BG design), Emily Tetri (BG paint), Christine Bian (BG design), Jojo Aguilar (prop & add. BG design), Mike, Lauren Zurcher (BG paint), and me.

Due to prior lunch plans, I missed out :( But here’s what’s left of our amazing crew!
