People need to accept that not all “cliches” are bad. People still like stuff like forbidden love stories, underdogs winning, and the dog biting back. The term cliche is negative, produces an image of all that is trite and boring, but actual cliches can be very good. Storytelling is built on cliches after all.
It’s not the cliche but how it is utilized by the author.
This is my old storyboard work from the episode, “Mystery, Incorporeal” of Ben 10 Omniverse, Cartoon Network. I’ve added a color version next to my board, so you guys can enjoy comparing how the boards turn into final product. You will see some of character expressions are well translated into final product even though they were out of model. Main production in Korea has done good job. Hope you enjoy!(*Copyright is at Cartoon Network)
The awesome Steve Ahn, peoples.
PSA: If an artist charges you a flat rate for a commission, tipping is definitely a thing you can do to even out the price if you think they should be charging more. Or it could just be a favor for the artist. Either way, it is always greatly appreciated.

i don’t think anyone understands that when i say i get secondhand embarrassment easily i mean at the first sign of trouble for a character in a television show i immediately pause and sit there for ten to thirty minutes thinking “oh god they fucked up”
Fire is the element of power. The people of the Fire Nation have desire and will, and the energy and drive to achieve what they want.
Earth is the element of substance. The people of the Earth Kingdom are diverse and strong. They are persistent and enduring.
Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly concerns, and they found peace and freedom. And they apparently had pretty good senses of humor!
Water is the element of change. The people of the Water Tribes are capable of adapting to many things. They have a sense of community and love that holds them together through anything.
It is important to draw wisdom from different places. If you take it from only one place it becomes rigid and stale. Understanding others, the other elements, the other nations, will help you become whole. It is the combination of the four elements in one person that makes the Avatar so powerful. But it can make you more powerful, too.
Wow those curves holy wow.
