Hello Avatar fans!
As this pandemic continues, we hope you’re staying safe and healthy wherever you are. Remember: keep wearing your masks, wash your hands, and practice social distancing. Everything is going to be okay!
We’ve had a few more exciting developments with the Legend of Genji that we would love to share with you! As a quick reminder, this project is NOT official and we are NOT affiliated with Nickelodeon, Viacom, or the original creators of the show.
Writing Team Updates
The Writing Team has been working hard to strengthen the plot and polish our existing content. They’ve especially focused on the scripts for Episodes 3 and 4, which are really close to completion! While working on the episodes, the writers are also creating video scripts for some future YouTube content! We will hopefully be posting more videos soon, so keep your eyes on our channel!
Art Team Updates
We opened up positions for artists to join the team back in April, and the response was amazing! We had so many impressive applications come in and enjoyed reviewing them as a team. Thank you to everyone for applying; the Avatar fan community is so ridiculously talented! We would like to formally introduce our four new amazing artists: Kim, Kriska, Nickita, and Troy! You may have seen some of their art on our Instagram already– there will be more to come!
And! Even more exciting news for the comic: all draft pages for Episode 1 are complete!! With that, the artists are editing layouts and starting the final lineart. The wonderful Thyago helped us work through our page production process, and we’re building new standardized templates and color palettes in an effort to keep the work consistent across several artists.
Social Media Updates
It’s been an exciting time on our social media accounts– in May we reached 10,000 followers on our English Instagram account and 5,000 on Tumblr! And, very recently, we hit 1 million views on the Legend of Genji prologue!! It’s all been mindblowing and so exciting; thank you all for your continued support and stay tuned for more milestones and updates in the future!
Speaking of updates, some (or most) of you might have seen a new video discussing our project! Macky, Kourtney, Indi, and Juan talked about the story’s premise and answered some fan questions.
While you’re over at our YouTube channel, you’ll also be able to watch some speed drawings of our characters practicing handwashing, social distancing, self-care, and mask etiquette! Let’s work together to keep each other safe and healthy.
Thank you all for the likes, comments, follows, and shares!! Your support means everything to us! Until next time, stay safe and take care!
