Avatar Storyboards:In a real treat for fans, veteran Avatar director Giancarlo Volpe has posted a series of 27 storyboards from "The Awakening", the premiere episode of season three! Click the thumbnail at left or the link above to see all 27 on Giancarlo's DA account.

Each storyboard has four panels on the left in which key scenes from the episode are sketched. Directing instructions and other notes are placed in the box adjacent to the sketch. These storyboards are a key part of the animation production process and it's great that Giancarlo has provided everyone with a glimpse into the massive amount of work that goes into making our favorite show. He writes:

"I thought maybe the fans would be curious to see these. But also, I hope all the aspiring storyboard artists and animators can learn by observation."

Thanks again to Giancarlo for posting these, and if you haven't checked out his DA account yet, make sure to stop by!

Avatar Comics: Checking with another Avatar staff member and prominent DA artist, rufftoon has posted an update on her DA account that indicates each of the individual DVD volumes for season 3 will contain a set of Avatar comics!

The awesome cover for the first set of comics is seen at right, though a spectacular full size version can be seen on rufftoon's DA page, as well as the a sample page from one the comics from the one of the discs.

Ruff writes, "These will only be available with the 3rd season DVDs, the first one coming out at the end of October. They won't be available with the box set, and at present there are no plans to collect them all together."
