Years ago, on the Avatar production, we all became pretty obsessed with Futa, the seemingly-bipedal red panda who had captured the adoration of the Japanese public. I recently remembered that Futa was the original inspiration for our red panda-ferret hybrid character Pabu. Unlike the rest of his derpy species (and Pabu, who is also fairly derpy), Futa always looked businesslike and no-nonsense standing on his hind legs all the time, like he was looking for other red pandas to boss around. “Hey! You there! Stop being a derp. Back to work.” I always thought he needed a tie.
We put together some artwork for these giant decals to decorate our two production areas in the Burbank studio. My favorite is this life-size one of Naga & Korra. That’s the same look my dog gives me 90% of the time, and now I can see it towering over the cubicles every time I step outside my office.
I should have just waited an hour! Now I have something interesting to post. Christie, my assistant designer, just came in and gave me this AWESOME Pabu keychain by Akusesu. THANKS!
am i kicked out of the fandom yet
I love uniform!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is the final press art I did for the upcoming 1-hour finale of The Legend of Korra, which airs on Saturday, June 23. Thanks for all of the kind words and support as I posted some of the in-progress elements along the way. I was sick and exhausted through most of the process, so the positive vibes were more than welcome. Amon’s mask received a minor nose job since I posted that layer last week: he has less of the signature Konietzko schnoz now.
