Hi folks...shameless promotion here. Just wanted to let you guys know about Justice League: Doom that just came out on DVD/Blu-Ray today. This was one crazy production experience. We had very, very little time and next to no crew. In the beginning it was literally just :iconlaurenmontgomery:, me and :iconphilbourassa: doing the art and storyboards. All the other designers and storyboard artists were on different productions. We had to have TMS studios in Japan do the storyboards and animation based off Dwayne McDuffie's script (RIP). Lauren and I had to then reboard a big part of the show while in Japan since large sections just weren't working out. That continued when we returned back to WB.

Overall, it was a great and very, very different experience than the other shows we're used to. There was alot of "design on the spot" situations while in Japan. It wasn't until later that we had more designers come in to help clean-up and build the BG/Prop designs in Sketchup/Maya. Well anyways, I'll be posting a bunch of the rough concept art that I did early on in the show shortly. Stay tuned! :)

Well I just finished catching up on the remainder Young Justice, and man oh man. Over the entire course of this series, every single time I thought you guys had raised the bar to a whole new level, you then proceeded to top yourselves again and again and again. And even though Cartoon Network pulled the rug out from under you, you continued to maintain that same level of visual quality, superb writing, deep characterization and attention to detail right up until the very last frame. I'm truly in awe of how brilliantly this entire series was executed.

And you know what else? Even in spite of everything, I think you ended on the absolute perfect note. I'll miss the show, but the finale was thoroughly satisfying and didn't leave me feeling cheated in the least. You even managed to pull THAT off.

In sincere gratitude,
Corey W. Smith
Thank you Corey! Its good to know the fans enjoyed it.
