This piece was inspired by the bewitching and bewildering work of Amei Zhao, aka seventypercentethanol, who consistently blows my mind here on Tumblr.
EDIT: Yep. Made a couple tweaks.
I’m having fun looking through the roughs for these old DVD covers. This one is from October of 2005, and is a rare case where I am actually happy with the final version, even now. I like this sketch too, though. This piece always felt very serene to me.
More old stuff while I’m buried in new stuff. This was the rough for one of the last DVD covers I did in 2008. As usual, the rough was a lot cooler than the finished piece.
This is an update of sorts, based on a little concept I did almost exactly 10 years ago. I worked on it a few minutes at the end of each day this week. *Trying* to get better at digital painting. Hope you guys enjoy it. Have a great weekend!
I was planning on doing this sketch a few weeks back, but I just got around to it tonight. Il Kwang at Studio Mir did a fantastic job designing young General Iroh, in my opinion. I saw a funny “CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR FACE” post after he showed up in the end of episode 110. I say, “CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR HAIR, SIR.”
I love Lin.
Episode 110 is tomorrow! (And once again, the Book 1 one-hour finale is next week.)
Have a great weekend!
Bryan: When we finally made it to the big finale, uhm, it-the main thing was just like-we’re at the end. At this point it had been years of our lives. 15 hour days. 6/7 days a week. By that point, we were crazy.
Michael: It takes so much work to make these animated shows. You don’t really see all the blood, sweat, and tears in the behind-the-scenes stuff.
“If it were up to the majority of the audience, we’d probably have a show where Tahno and the Cabbage Merchant play beach games on Ember Island for 500 episodes”
Wait, so that will never happen now? But…but…
I LOVE YOU
