I'll chime in with my first two points right now. (Family just came home and it's dinner time. Interestingly enough, I put it on pause and I'm in the exact middle of the program at 46 minutes on either end.)
1. I've received an Emiliano sketch. At Comic Con 2004, he drew Skeletor for me. I was in line with Lord Fallen Eldor; Enza drew Orko for me; Nate drew She-Ra, and Val... Val was wearing a Cobra Commander mask and swinging a sword around. It was great!
2. As a professional artist, who's worked in production the last three years, I was a little surprised at the art on the latest 2 packs. The one thing I do know is that quite often, money is allocated and has to be used for things, so maybe they can't accept free aid. Yeah, the DC characters were closer to model, and the MOTU characters weren't as much. (BTW Hawkman's wings are the wrong color too, and Aquaman's collar is off for said figure.) Yeah, it's possible the artist didn't see the right designs... HOWEVER, working in animation, I had to provide storyboard artists with model designs, for every piece of the production, be it characters or props--even if they didn't have to draw exactly to model (as our show was 3D). But besides all of that... the coloring looked like it was done very quickly. With all due respect, when I saw it, I thought, 'Did they have 20 minutes to do this?'
3. Val, great coloring on Superman Batman 75. I had no idea that was you! I love the nebula and of course the lighting and energy. I'm a total sucker for it.
I'll get back on my soap box later... Cheers!
