Today wasn’t nearly as busy as yesterday yet I still learned quite a lot and the best thing was a trip to Blizzard entertainment, who are best known for Word of Warcraft, Starcraft, and the Diablo games. Thier place was amazing to tour and the environment was also great to see and one that I would love to work for someday! After seeing more galleries and talking to other people working within the industry, we spend the rest of the night at the beach to relax for a bit.
Day 3 of L.A illustration field trip:
This happened yesterday but better late than never! We took a look at Disney Toon (who make the Tinkerbell and Planes series) and their stuff was incredibly inspiring to look at!
The greatest highlight, however, was a tour of Dreamworks and guys, omg, we have some amazing stuff coming!!!!! I can’t even begin to express my excitement from the artwork for How To Train You Dragon 2, Kung Fu Panda 3 and other films looming on the horizon!!
After that we went to an exhibit for Drew Struzer, a famous poster and cover artists and is best known for his posters for Harry potter, Indiana jones, back to the future, and more! It was absolutely amazing and beautiful to see the originals
Starting on day 2 cus yesterday was just travel and getting situated.
Today was amazing! The Getty museum had such gorgeous artwork and artifacts that I enjoyed it more than I thought I would! Might not be my favorite artwork but I sure appreciate history!
But the real gem was Riot games. Guys, I wanna work there! I’m still eager to see the other studios but this one has already impressed me! Their work place looks so fun, comfortable, and creative and their environment sounds like one I could enjoy! They also gave good insights about game and visual development, which has given a lot of motivation for me! I just wish I had a portfolio to show cus they were giving pointers to those who did >
So this week is gonna be super crazy cus I’m fotunate enough to be part f a school field trip to Los Angeles, California to visit several animation and gaming studios to see their work stations and learn how to apply for their companys! These studios include Riot Games, Blizzard, Disney, Disney Toon, Illumination, and Dreamworks! We will also be doing other things like visiting some fun places in California and visiting famous Museums as well! I’m so excited to finally have some adventure this year!
But your best friend is still your best friend. Even from half a world away. Distance can’t sever that connection. Best friends are the kind of people who can survive anything. And when best friends see each other again, after being separated by half a world and more miles than you think you can bear, you pick up right where you left off. After all, that’s what best friends do.
This scene still breaks my heart each and every single time I watch it.
Azula was a terrible, horrible person. She would have set the world aflame and laughed over the broken carcass of her brother.
But she was fourteen.
She was so ruined and twisted by her childhood and by her nation, driven to insanity by the expectations placed upon her.
Azula was bad and yet I can’t help but feel so terribly sorry for her.
"I don’t have sob stories like all of you."
SHE WAS FUCKING FOURTEEN WHAT
"My own mother….thought I was a monster. She was right, of course, but it still hurt.”
actually, i think one of the shows strengths is that they didn’t shy away from what a horrible tragedy this was. even though she was clearly a villain and did unspeakably awful things, this scene was still framed as sad. there was no celebrating- they just look at her sadly.
the music for the battle that leads up to this moment is sad too- it’s an epic battle, visually probably one of the biggest things done in the entire series, and they could have played it with thumping, energetic, dangerous music. but instead it’s quiet and somber. because the whole scenario is heartbreaking, and they know it.
i think the fact that a kid’s show had so much respect for it’s viewers and their ability to understand the complexity of this situation is what makes avatar great.
