LEGEND OF KORRA STORYBOARDS Ep 10 by LeSeanThomas LEGEND OF KORRA STORYBOARDS Ep 10 by LeSeanThomas
"STAY AWAY FROM MY DAD'S EX- GIRLFRIEND!":

Here's some more storyboards i boarded of as staff at STUDIO MIR in Korea in 2010, EPISODE 10: "TURNING THE TIDES"
I believe this bit is from ACT 3 where Amon and the Equalists attack Air Temple Island.

Here, Lin attempts to defend the last Air Benders from the Lieutenant and The Equalists as Pema is about to give birth to Rohan. What many of you who've seen this episode notices is that this is the first version before final edits. So you will see sequences here that were cut in the final aired on TV for running time or other reasons.


Fun times!

This are amazing!

Here's a question: Have you tried out Toon Boom Storyboard Pro or other storyboarding software that lets you board and edit into an animatic at the same time? It seems natural to work out the boards and at the same time work out the timing and rythm. In the past year I've transitioned to complete digital storyboarding and I find it much faster and it lets you explore all the stuff you can achieve in editing, also you skip the part where you scan all the storyboards and separate them into layers and it saves time.

From what I've seen storyboard artists in Korean and Japanese animation studios still work traditionally, what has stopped them from transitioning into fully digital?

A full act (10-12 script pages) takes one month: Two weeks for rough boards & 2 weeks for clean-up.

Man that part where she grabs both soldiers with the lines and the camera angle changes to birds eye view as she makes them slam one another in the sky is golden! Such a wonderful shot.

this is sick...i don't really remember that scene very well, but your storyboards are very clear and understandable. I've always wondered why they don't do the action in comic books like they do in storyboards to give the reader a very good sense of what is happening verses drawing "extreme" poses of the actions...

Well... with comics you dont have nearly as much room to tell a fight for example, as you do in animation. Animation is generally 24+ frames per second with many scene and angle changes. Comics, as LeSean stated are generally 22 pages, with anywhere from 1-6+ panels on each page. It's not exactly a fair comparison. As a comic artist, I can say that most of us do what we can with what we have :)

It's also fair to say that LeS is in a league of storyboarders/animators that stands out above head and shoulders in the industry. There are plenty of people in comics (like James Harren and Felipe Smith for example) who convey action beautifully.

Hey thanks, Jeff. As a guy who's still known as a comic book artist from time to time, it is very difficult going back and forth from still images of comics discipline, to the staging and timing for seconds in animation/moving pictures. Both are very difficult to do, but are still very fun. And thanks for the kind words. I personally think there are better board guys out there, ha, ha. but i do my best with what i get.

I definitely consider you a comic artist (hoping to see your work back on the shelves someday!). And I think it's often mistaken that comics and storyboarding go hand in hand. They really are 2 different ballparks! Boarding is intimidating, I dont know if I would have the constitution to do that. But comics are as well. Telling a story that flows visually without hiccups, be it any media, is HARD work! I wish there were more kinetic action sequences in comics, but it's hard enough to tell a slow or emotional scene and sometimes those are much more important.
Ah, anyway Im rambling. Visual storytelling, any media, any medium is a beautiful thing. And you, sir, do it right!

It could possibly be a personal preference for certain artists in comics to be concise and clear in their storytelling. It could also be a lack in ability to do so, or lack of time as most comics have only 22 pages to get their story across. Also, comic book readers as a collective, seem to be far more forgiving of poor storytelling in comics because they don't hold the abilities of visual literacy of comic book artists up to the same standards as storytelling or a director for moving pictures. The art is still in comics. it has to hold up well on a page, so if it's drawn well, it doesn't necessarily have to be told well. Just a theory. Thanks!

Good theory,...I guess that's why we're just gonna have to wait for the CANNON BUSTERS, to get all that...keep up the good work.
