hebrideanisle asked:

What would you say was the worst episode of RS so far that you have seen, and the worst episode you have yourself worked on? As a counterpart: what was the best episode in general you have seen, and the best you have personally worked on?

I can say my least favorite of mine that I’ve made is probably Party Re-Pete. It was my second episode and I didn’t really know what I was doing. There were a lot of things that, if I had the skills I have now, I would have caught back then.

There was a section in the outline that said something like “in a flashback, Party Pete is shown getting thrown into the cloning machines by Tommy and Vince”. I made it so the flashback showed Party Pete’s entire history with Tommy and Vince, including meeting them at college and starting a party starting business together. Also painting Part Pete as a more sympathetic character with occasional desires other than partying (such as playing sudoku). It got changed after I handed it in to just be about Benson saying what happened to him. This makes more sense as the story is supposed to be about Benson, and it really should have stuck with him the whole time, but I wasn’t able to catch that back when it was given to me.

So now every time I see that episode I have this cringy feeling as bits of dialogue that I originally wrote got shifted around and changed to be from Benson’s perspective. It’s not that it’s bad, I just wish I had known better and I could have written something that satisfied myself and the goal of the episode more.

As far as favorite episodes of mine go (from the ones that have aired) I would have to choose Portable Toilet. I really feel like that episode just fit together really well. It felt like it sort of fell into place. It has a bunch of sci-fi in it, which I’m always really into. It was fun coming up with satellites, even though apparently most of the ones I originally drew looked like dicks. I also liked doing all kinds of military jokes based on the countless amount of action movies I’ve seen.

It was also fun to do something with CJ and make her more into just a person instead of a romantic figure. I even got to research portable toilets to make sure someone couldn’t suffocate in there for that one throwaway Eileen line about them being well ventilated. I emailed a bunch of portable toilet manufacturers and they were utterly confused about what I could possibly be trying to teach about portable toilets to kids on some TV show.

I like most of my episodes. I really liked “I Like You Hi” because of Mordecai getting real at the end and how it was just my actual feelings coming out of his mouth. I also liked Bad Portrait for the art school jokes we got to make.

ketchupusername asked:

How limited are you about the things you can talk about to the fans when it comes to regular show? I've always wanted to know.

Kinda limited. I can’t talk about story points, which seems to be what everyone wants me to talk about. It’s pretty silly to ask about those things because why one earth would you wanna learn about it by asking someone instead of watching the story itself? That’s the worst way to find out about anything.

I can talk about process however. If someone wants to ask the technical details of how we work or what we were thinking about in a particular episode (that already aired) then I can answer that. I can’t answer on behalf of other storyboard teams though. Sometimes people will ask me about someone else’s episode and what something is supposed to mean, but I don’t know because I’m not them.

The trick question version of that is no good as well. Like the one where it’s actually a spoiler question sandwiched in a non-spoiler question. Like “what were you thinking about while you boarded that section with CJ and Margaret fighting in that fever dream?” You’re not tricking me. I know what you’re trying to get me to actually say by asking me something else somewhat tangentially related. Also I didn’t board that, so all around its a question that doesn’t work for me.

But really, I love questions. I just can’t answer a lot of them or I’ve already answered a bunch that were very similar. I tend to try and answer intriguing questions or questions I think could help a lot of people.

hebrideanisle asked:

Do you suppose there is a reason why RS has been taken off the schedule completely? They are not even airing reruns. Possibly to push other shows?

I dunno. I don’t really know why or how scheduling works on stuff. However, we will have a terror tales episode, so there’s no reason to worry! It’ll come back full force and everything will be back to normal. Believe me, I want them to be airing as well so I can hear reactions to our work. It’s hard working on stuff and then not being able to talk about it for a year. :-/

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 30 - Doing something hot
Careful Mordecai, play with fire and you might get burnt! Sometimes when Godzilla gets startled he breaths a little fire. It’s his natural reaction, it’s almost like a gag reflex! Hope Mordecai likes the taste of roast bird!
That’s it! I did it! This is the last day of the 30 Day OTP Challenge for Godecai! I hope it was as fun for everyone else as it was for me. I cannot think of a better OTP than Godecai and I hope eventually the leaders of Cartoon Network and Toho will finally get it through their heads how much the fans want this! Nothing would make me happier than finally seeing Godecai become canon.

yo do any of you lil shits watch the regular show and if so, is it suitable viewing for someone trying to avoid doing university work all day and all night?

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 29 - Doing something sweet

While in a stopover in Japan for their honeymoon, Godzilla introduced Mordecai to mochi! It’s the number one food in Japan so Mordecai thought he should definitely try it. He likes the sesame seed ones and the mango ones but not the red bean paste ones because they’re bitter and gross. Why does anyone like red bean paste?

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 28 - Doing something ridiculous

For their honeymoon, Godzilla thought it would be a good idea to take a trip around asia with a quick stop off at Monster Island. Anguirus has a really cool ball pit that they got to jump into after fighting off Kumonga and Kamacuras.
I decided to try and do this one in a new style without lines. I think it turned out really cool! The balls were a lot of fun to figure out!

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 26 - Getting married

The day has finally come! All of Godzilla’s best friends swam all the way from Japan to help set up the decorations. They couldn’t afford a really big fancy wedding, but Mordecai said “As long as we’re together and our love is together, then I don’t need a fancy wedding”. All their friends from the park came and also Techmo showed up and dual DJed with Thomas.

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 27 - On one of their birthdays

Okay… I know it’s against the rules, but I switched around Day 26 and Day 27 and I THINK YOU CAN SEE WHY!!!!! OMG I’m SO excited for them! Who knew that it would be Mordecai to finally pop the question?? He’s really matured a lot. I wish I could see what the ring looked like! I wonder what sort of adventure Mordecai had to go on by himself in order to get that ring?

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 25 - Gazing into eachothers’ eyes

Who doesn’t want love like Mordecai and Godzilla have? Look at those two lovebirds! They probably sat like that for hours and Mordecai talked the whole time about how he always had trouble with girls until Godzilla came along. Godzilla meanwhile talked about how people in Japan hated his guts and even tried attacking him with oxygen bombs but now he’s got a new life with Mordecai and that old life is gone.

The bottom is my original but the top is my redraw in palette #49. It turned out pretty great I think, looks really trippy!

Dude, you went to Indonesia ? So how was it there ? As an RS fan and an Indonesian , it feel so cool that a RS storyboarder actually came here.

Sorry for the late reply but it was great! I’d never visited a muslim country before so it was a really cool new experience. I stayed with a friend’s family in Bandung for about 2 weeks. It was a ton of fun. I also got to visit a beach that I’m afraid I don’t know the name of but I ate some really good ice cream with caviar on it? Also salted orange juice (which is how I prefer my orange juice now). I had a lot of very unexpected foods. A bunch of monkeys stole food from us on the beach and I also got to charter a boat to take me out to see all the fisherman houses on stilts and stuff. It was awesome! Indonesia was a fun time!
