This was supposed to be posted on Wednesday but I didn’t finish it in time. The Mochi!Lanterns wear their costumes (except for Sinestro) and enjoy their favorite Halloween treats! Can you guess who dressed up as what?
It’s not too late to put in pieces. The week is all about providing fun prompts and incentive to create something.
Something I think was cool about GLTAS was that the female characters had distinct facial features.
When people first brought up Aya and Ilana looking similar, I dismissed it as just sameface, because a lot of cartoons seem to use the same cute round face for their female characters, and I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be intentional.
GLTAS showed a distinctive variety in facial structure, eye and nose shapes before you even started looking at more cosmetic details of eyebrows, lip shapes, and color palettes. Every facial feature is different on each lady. It speaks to the quality and extra effort not just of the animators, but of the character designers, producers, and directors to make sure each woman was unique.
This is an excellent fan edit, and (I think) we all wish it were our season 2.
I heard it was a certain GLTAS producer’s birthday today. >u> Wanted to draw a little gift for him.
Hope you had a wonderful day, Giancarlo!
Happy Birthday Giancarlo Volpe!
Some thoughts about GLTAS and its ladies
Warning: long, LONG ramblings and images under the cut.
I’m happy about the things we did right.
And sorry for the things we did wrong.
Learning. Hope to do better on the next show.
#GLTAS, #GLTAS ladies, #mea culpa
"Mea Culpa" — an acknowledgment of one’s fault or error.
I can’t express enough what wonderful creators the Fanterns are lucky enough to have. They have from early on encouraged and engaged the fans, been vocally appreciative of positive responses, and acknowledged criticism fairly and with grace.
Worth noting, writer Ernie Altbacker also responded, saying this was “Good stuff!”
Love you guys.
