Wow. Baltimore Comic Con peeps are pretty amazing. I spent all day on the floor talking to excited Atomic Robo fans. The response to the trialer was fantastic! Me and the crew are more excited than ever to get back in the studio and start animating again! The only bad thing about being at the show is not being in the studio. But it’s more than worth it to hang out with Fans, recharge our batteries and be reminded who we’re doing this for in first place… the audience!
A lot of people asked us to buy Atomic Robo Comics today, but unfortunately we don’t sell them currently. But that doesn’t mean you can go to the official Atomic Robo Site and get your hot hands on your very own copies of Brian and Scott’s badass bot books.
If you are coming in on Sunday, make sure you buy raffle tickets. You could win a signed Atomic Robo: Production Poster (the whole crew), Feltingard (a plush ARLS model Helsingard), or an actual hand drawn Run sequence from the short. We are also selling copies of American Terror at the table. Here’s a link to buy the AT Books, or watch the Fictory short, American Terror: Company Man.

Here’s a little behind the scenes for some of the Jenkins clip we’ve been posting. Above is a shot of Helaine Crawford, intern from PCA&D (Pennsylvania College of Art and Design), posing over one of the first Story Board sequences she completed with us. When Helaine first joined us, she said she loved storyboarding! So I had her put her money where her mouth was, and damn if we weren’t all impressed. Since the Jenkins scene Helaine has gone on to board other shots for ARLS. Keep an eye out for more of her work, and the work of other crew members, as production continues!
Oh, and Helaine… CONGRATULATIONS!

Here is an update from last week! The Jenkins shot is coming along quite nicely. Now that the key animation is finished, we’ve begun tweening.
