Stargate Universe / Atlantis - Joseph Mallozzi's Blog - MORE SGA Production Artwork

From Joseph Mallozzi's blog update for March 19, 2010:

A pitiful sight! Production goings-on! Brackets busted! And more from the Atlantis Art Department Archives!

... Got most of the notes for my Resurgence outline (episode 10) and, while I’m still a little leery about the third act, I’m just going to forge ahead. I feel it might be a little short but Brad [Wright] was quick to point out that I thought Incursion would be short – and it turned into a two-parter.

VFX Supervisor Mark Savela came by the offices today to solicit our opinions on the fast-developing new aliens. Paul [Mullie] felt the hands were too large, the fingers too pointy, while my main concern was the potential expressiveness of the face (or, at this point, lack thereof). Mark assured me that they were in the early stages and, as things progressed, they’d be adding layers (ie. musculature and flesh) that will address my concerns.

Second cast read-thru today. It included regulars and a few recurring including that Prison Break veteran I mentioned in a previous entry. Very nice guy – unlike the character he plays on SGU. Or Heroes for that matter...

[NOTE: Could Joe be referring to Robert Knepper? Hmmmm...]

[Update: March 20 '10: Spoiler TV confirms Robert Knepper will have a recurring role in season two of Stargate Universe.]

... More goodies from the Stargate: Atlantis Art Department archives:

Captain’s Chair – Stargate: Atlantis, Season Four, Travelers. Thank goodness for neural interfaces. It’s a wonder anything ever got done without them.

Writer Takes SG-1 Character Back Through the STARGATE

By Troy Brownfield
posted: 19 March 2010

Brandon Jerwa's no stranger to licensed comics. He's written across the spectrum from "G.I. Joe" to "Battlestar Galactica". Now he gets a chance to put his stamp on the Stargate Universe with Dynamite's initial offering. The first book out of the Stargate stars Vala Mal Doran, the character brought to life onscreen by fan favorite Claudia Black. Jerwa tells us why Vala, what makes her great, and why Jack O'Neill fans should be on board, too.

A brief excerpt:

Newsarama: Out of all of the characters in the Stargate Universe, Vala Mal Doran gets one of the first looks in comics form. What about her is particularly compelling to you?
Brandon Jerwa: How can you not love her? She's snarky, duplicitous, self-centered, easily enraged and somehow still adorable.
