I'm having a really rough day. Can you draw toph being awesome? It'd cheer me up so much
I didn’t want to do a crappy left-handed drawing for you, because I was afraid it wouldn’t cheer you up, and I don’t have time today to do a good drawing. However, my previously-mentioned board partner Madeleine Flores heard about it and asked if she could do the honors, so here you go. It is, undeniably, Toph being awesome.
If you want to see other places on tumblr where Toph is being awesome, I would look here:
I have a dumb idea to introduce you guys, who I assume are mostly Korra fans, to my new friends here on Bad Seeds. I haven’t talked this over with any of them yet, so it might not work at all, but here’s the plan: You send me short scripts at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will film them as quickly as possible and post them on youtube.
The scripts should be no longer than a page, and the less overtly offensive, the more likely we’ll pick yours to shoot. Also, if they’re set in an office building, that makes it easier, because I can promise you we will not be building sets.
Even though these will be shot with people that work on the show, the little films will be in no way affiliated with Nickelodeon or Bad Seeds officially. Just friends having fun.
I’ll make up further rules once we start seeing what kind of scripts you guys send in. The email, again: email@example.com.
Fair warning: there’s a very good chance that this may not end up happening at all, so don’t get angry if you send in a script and then we never do it. As I said in the first paragraph, this is a dumb idea.
Guys my board partner is doing a thing, i’m excited. I’ve been reading some of the scripts and i’m stoked to participate! Send your scripts!

My new job is Story board artist, that means I get to come up with jokes and draw goofy poses with my board partner.
The rest of the answers are “put stuff on the internet”
What sort of revisions do storyboard revisionists make?
For me it’s : redrawing characters to keep them on model- adding backgrounds to scenes- adding more poses so the dialogue is enhanced- once in a while I’ll get to re-board a scene if Standards and Practices says that there have to be changes (board artists are busy working on the next board so they don’t have time for that)
A late congratulations on the Adventure Time episode! I was just curious, how did you pick up storyboarding? Is it something you just had to get a crash course in by observing and practicing it in action? Did making comics for all those years help out? Maybe you just studied it and the answer is super simple. Does Dirtbike ever drool? My gf's cat does. It's gross and adorable. Grodorable.
I know so little about technical storyboarding(technique and camera movements) but I feel more confident in jokes and dialogue and coming up with stories- so that’s where that balances out!
Having done comics for a while seems to help a bit- but a Storyboard is like drawing a super inefficient comic. Every pose and movement has to be tracked versus in a comic I can have a person sitting in a room and then suddenly be in another room.
I bought books on storyboarding and would study whatever boards I could find online~~
For Adventure Time, Adam Muto did so so so much and the revisionists corrected every mistake I made- so it’s all a huge team effort!!
Dirtbike doesn’t drool, but she purrs nonstop (like an engine, hence the name Dirtbike!)
I'm sooo envious!! How did you become a story board artist?? How do you apply??
I was contacted by AT after they saw my comics online, they asked if I wanted to do a test, I said yes- I did ok, and was asked to do some freelance revisions, I said yes and did ok, then they asked If I wanted to do a board and I said yes and here we are.
