We got the script for #305 over a year ago now, and it still remains one of my favourite episodes, namely for the dream sequences. The script itself called for something much different when the turtles had their respective nightmares, but we got loose writers and rad directors on turtles, and I had been dying to cram a metal sequence into tmnt since i started. I was stranded in Toronto with no digital equipment, so here’s some of the boards I supplied for our episode pitch:
Then when it came time to actually board the thing, i couldn’t help but put it to some Slayer…
And just in case you wanted to hear a man with no voice acting talent what-so-ever, here’s my pitch for the very first Crognard sequence for 301.
After these drawings there’s about a thousand other people and hours it goes through, and then it’s a tv show. Magic.
Saturday, the entrance to Q-Pop was cluttered with goons watching cock monsters shoot green shit onto Devilman’s face, and a giant Mazinger head surveyed them through the window…silent….and sentient. Some people were kind enough to let me hog some pink wall space with a piece and I was more than happy to supply. Here’s what I came up with.
That’s Sayaka in the upside-down crucifix scene from Mazinkaiser. Seeing as I spend all waking moments on a cintiq nowadays, I made a point to do this the old way: ALL ANALOG. Screentones and everything! “Shiiiiiet” is RIGHT. There were a lot of other pieces in the show of insanely high quality, but you can click here to check them out (and buy them)…coz this is my blog dammit.
Thanks to Q-Pop and my TMNT peeps for gettin me in in the first place!
