Update: 

*4/29/15 Here it is. The latest update! Recorded and added a little dialogue- of Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers, Thor, Loki, and the Frost Giants. Will add more in time.
*12/29/14 Among the surprises to boot, Another Marvel character makes a brief cameo. 2200+ unique frames made it to this update.

In the next update (Date TBD) I'm working Heimdall, Agent Coulson, Nick Fury in. You'll also see the Weapons Vault.
And more.

3/16/13: Music added. Pencil test to come.
4/10/13: Pencil test...v1.0
7/20/13: New music composition added: 'Crisis' clip update.
12/5/13: New music composition added: 'Descent' clip update.
1/12/14: Working on some 'Exit Avengers' concept art for the start of the film. Here's a snapshot.  
Avengers sketch I by vocaltaffy

Making art concept for a fan Loki film.
Because I'm one who believes there should one.
Check for updates and soon-to-come animatic.

2/15/14: It just dawned on me about the concept art that I've been working on....as I'm drawing more Hogun animation frames for this animatic. the irony of this discovery is that I didn't include any Hogun in this first test and its been almost a year... and just in November last year we were robbed of Hogun time in Thor the Dark World. Almost as ironic is the fact that I'd only drawn one picture of Fandral and a handful of Volstagg. in the dark world movie, the amount of screen time they'd gotten in the dark world movie seems to correspond with the amount of time I put them in my animatic. Total coincidence I know, but when you think about it, it's rather strange, isn't it? :-)

3/3/2014. I'm still working hard on the next pencil test, with new scenes, more action, and some acting, too. Nearly a year and 2,000 frames since the first one, there's more to see, with more characters, and a few neat surprises.
3/20: Still at it.
*5/17/14. I'll start scanning new frames today. This may take all day to do (2,359 frames)*

Concept Art: New update! Loki concept art animatic 2.0! by vocaltaffy

Script Concept is being developed. Taking place right after the Avengers, Loki must now face Asgardian Justice at Odin's hands. Odin strips Loki of his power and banishes him to New York, where he must cope with its mortal dangers. Armed with not much more than his brilliant intellect, Loki must use his wits to survive, while crafting a way to regain his adoptive dad's good graces.

While on Earth, Loki is summoned to help secure another item from Odin's Trophy room, in exchange for his old powers back and his eternal allegiance. But Loki's price is greater than that... isn't it?

Loki is after the Orb of Agamotto at the request of another, more powerful sorcerer. This short takes place after the events in The Avengers, but separate from Thor: The Dark World.

This is AMAZING! Made with just paper and pencil and yet it's so cool. Although some of the animation was choppy and didn't flow well, it had a great impact. The animation was actually longer then I though I was winch was a good thing. Each little section was connect witch brought out a beautiful story. The simple music that you picket added to the awesome story. I say food fellow keep up the gear job! Your work is amazing and I was lost for words for a while and couldn't believe it. The art style you used just adds to the greatness. You sir are a SUPER AWESOME!!!!❤💕💗💚💝💞

I've watched as this artist revealed these as stills at first. This has been a long-time-coming project, and the dedication is more than I could muster myself!
At last, we see the stills come to life--and with music! The very same music that has also been long-time-coming!
The birds flying at the beginning introduces us to the ending of The Avengers. Familiar faces, expressions depicted generously onto our favorite characters' faces. We follow Thor and Loki as this artist's story takes place...
Personally, I love the birds at the beginning! It's a beautiful vision for an introduction. I also like the expression on Loki's face when the mask is taken off at Asgard. He gives his brother a look. He tilts his head back. That look says Loki all over it.
The flash-back to Thor and Loki as children; and then the smile--that ever familiar grin.
All 5 stars on Vision and Impact; I leave half a star out for Originality only because this fan-inspired, and half a star for Technique to leave room for further progress on the work.
:) I am proud that this artist still keeps this work going. It's been a long-time-coming, and it's turning out beautifully.
Keep up the beautiful work.

True. But to take it even furture I'd send links out on LinkedIn for example, to some people in the field. -I'll be on the lookout for the fight scenes, sounds awesome. :D

As for me, believe I've commented on you're Loki logo a while back, and you might have seen some of my Loki fan art floating around. The Thor fan base is huge, but the community is fairly together, lol. :)

Ok so I haven't watched this in a seriously long time so there is A LOT of new stuff to me, and it's seriously FANTASTIC! I'm really excited to see all the progress you're making here, and by the way, the music sounds EPIC! I really think it conveys the right feelings in the right moments! (sorry I never replied to that note you sent me about the song). Keep it up and I hope to see more updates in the future! :)

Nothing's too new for me right now...back in school and surviving, by some miracle. I'm definitely ready for it to be over...and I'm just having on and writing :D I'm trying to dabble in a different side of Loki (pre-Thor), but I'm sort of caught at a point of looking at how he probably would have been compared to how I would want to write him...I'm still figuring it out. But hey, it's only been on my mind for like...12 hours...

There is certain "Epic" scope to your work and the characters seem quite authentic. (One-eyed Odin, etc.) The animations show good down-to-Earth "characters in the frame" positioning which of course follows the rules of proven and orthodox direction techniques. My only concern here is a more general one which I have alluded to in other critiques. That is; an overall tendency to overly anthropomorphize Mythic personalities. Loki was a Frost Giant, adopted by Odin as a kindness and quasi-political measure. Now of course it is only natural for the Norsemen, even as the Greeks, to model the Gods as idealized images of themselves but the "Titans" (whom supposedly came first) were imagined and portrayed quite differently. Frost Giant = Titan? hmmm...

Very good work...

R.K.
