as we stand with Dr. Banner, Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanoff, and Dr. Erik Selvig, surrounding Thor and Loki.
as Thor speaks to Loki
LOKI, without moving, blinks, shifts eyes to Thor.
Before our return to Asgard… we would
pay a few of our friends a visit.
LOKI glances wincingly at Thor.
Hesitantly, LOKI clutches the portal control with Thor.
As Banner, Stark, Rogers, Barton, & Romanoff- the AVENGERS- nod in syncopation.
as we stand with Dr. Selvig and the Avengers, we watch the bright blue tractor beam of light draw Thor and Loki up.
OUTER SPACE, VOID, as the tractor beam flashes across our galaxy, warping T
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.
Marvel's Loki is the property of Marvel Studios.
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.
The next major update for this will come in late May.... when you'll hear dialogue and see ACTUAL fighting!
I've seen you around dA before. Mind refreshing me on where it was?
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.
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 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...
It's wonderful to see them move! Amazing work as always!
