When I realized that I could export Hexels files as .csv’s I knew that I had to make some procedural animation in processing! Each triangle is programmed to act like a damped harmonic oscillator with some extra randomness thrown in.
Hi! I'm Colin Heck. I work in animation as a director on The Legend Of Korra. These are some of my drawings and smartass answers to Korra questions.
Hey- I’m getting your messages, but I can’t answer them because then they’ll go away. I’m starting the drawings, and once I finish a few, I’ll check the list and send messages to anybody who hasn’t sent me their info.
Okay, here’s the deal. I have a list of 20 winners, but I’m not completely sure it’s accurate. This is what I’ve got:
yamatoast, sn-orlax, mrspiritual, raestic, hanjeez, gruenteeblatt, dickyfitness, gregoryverrault, benditlikekorra, avatarzeldaobsession, sabrinagarridoz, puffthejiggly, pabu44, saikhantheloyal, bazuzuu, jennyatsdcc, makos-lightningrod, amiraelizabeth, mischiefeevee, beifonger, megannkelly
All of you should send me your desired character immediately, if you haven’t already, as well as the email you’d like me to send the picture to and your name or anything personal about yourself that would help me personalize it for you.
NOW- because I’m not completely sure if that list is correct or not, this is the list of people with correct answers that submitted before 9pm:
rainpool989, half-blood-printz, iciclebadge, inverselylogical, numbah-wan-avatar, thespacebrat, kitkyat, dontmesswithwatertribe, rueroo, christineisforc, lion-turtle-duck, apersoncalledyou, -asphyxiation-, kellyykao, quinchilla, destructokitteh, fireferretfuzzies, frylordazula, gotochell
So if you’re listed in that second bunch, send me your character too, and this is the deal I’ll make: if your favorite character happens to be the same as one of the characters submitted by that top 20 people? Congratulations, you get a drawing. I won’t do any new character drawings for the second group, but I will happily send along a duplicate of the drawing for the first group with at least some text personalization on it. That’s fair, right?
YOU SHOULD KNOW that it will probably take me a while to finish these drawings and get them sent to you, so please be patient with me.
EVERYBODY- thanks so much for watching and taking the time to take pictures of your tv screens and sending me blurry upside down Varrick shots. I hope you enjoyed the episode, and hopefully we can do something like this again soon.
Okay, nobody change their tumblr name. I’m trying to figure out the winners. Further updates soon.
Also, make sure your ask box is open, because I have no other way of contacting you.
It’s true, the east coast US has an advantage for this contest. I can’t really figure out another way to do it other than just picking random entries from the pool, which doesn’t sound very satisfying, and would require an end deadline, etc. It’s just going to have to be this way for this contest and maybe I’ll figure out a more equitable solution for a Book 3 contest. In the meantime, things balance out because you get to live on the west coast, and that’s easily worth more than one of my crappy drawings.
Answer 1: I’m not telling, you have to figure it out on your own. Answer 2: the only tag I’m going to use to determine winners is #NOATS, since I can’t figure out how to tell exactly when things are posted. If anybody does know how, let me know.
Korean phenom illustrator, director & now Creative Producer of The Boondocks Seasons 3 and upcoming season 4, Kim Seung Eun sketch studies. STUDIES. I learned a lot from him in my early years of The Boondocks animated series as we both started out as Directors on season 1. Considered one of South Korea’s best kept secrets and now Tv animations. One of my Hyeongs who constantly remind me I need to get better everyday. Responsible for some of the most memorable sequences in TV action animation. An absolute MASTER.
Kamsahamnida for the lessons big bro. :-)

I’ve answered this before, but in the interest of reinforcing the idea: only posts with all three screenshots in the same post will be eligible.
Tomorrow night is a one-hour Korra special, and the first episode of the pair is Chapter 11, “Night of a Thousand Stars,” a hilarious and dynamic script written by Josh Hamilton. Colin Heck did an amazing job directing this one, which feels like two episodes jammed into three acts every time I watch it. The image above is the movie poster featured in the episode, drawn by Christie Tseng, characters colored by Sylvia Filcak-Blackwolf, background painted by Emily Tetri, and art directed by me. It was based on a retro movie poster Nuktuk illustration Colin drew for fun early in Book 2. Studio Mir (back in the saddle for the remainder of Korra’s run) did incredible work on a tall order for this episode, once again. 8:00pm/7c Friday!
More news coming soon…
