I SPY BABIES (3 and 4)
THE ENGINES ARE REVVING the more i see Korra Book 2 on my dashboard i’m slowly getting more and more excited for it!!!
it’s still going to be difficult getting past the horribly forced romance script that TO THIS DAY my jimmies have not recovered from… let’s see what Book 2 comes out with… if not healing through writing, then at least some wicked concept art, outfits, design and style.
The Legend of Korra Art Book,
Pages 10 - 17 for Book 1
[All the text I tried to type out, past the cut. (Things in brackets) are usually stuff I couldn’t read/look up properly.] [By the way, it’s implied that pages 8 and 9 have a spread painting.]
Can’t wait for this book! :-D
I just got back from a trip to Studio Mir in Seoul, the studio that did the animation (and a lot of preproduction) for Book 1 of Korra. They are currently hard at work on several episodes of Book 2. Bryan and I have known Mir’s president, Jae Myoung, for over 10 years. In fact, he animated a lot of scenes on the pilot and went on to oversee and direct numerous episodes of A:TLA. With Studio Mir, he has created a very inspiring, artist-friendly environment. The talent he has assembled is top-notch and the artists are all excited to be working on Korra again! Can’t wait to show you the amazing work they’ve done (and will be doing.)
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to join Mike, Joaquim, and Benjamin on this trip, but I’m glad they were able to go and connect with the artists, and I hope to get over to see the folks at Mir and their new studio soon.
oh look a dream career :D
Probably the last Korra related piece I’ll do for a while. I had a lot of fun (especially with the water and “earth”) although coloring it was super challenging.

•Title is from the amazing song, “Spiritual State” by Nujabes feat Uyama Hiroto [link] I could listen to that song on loop forever.
•photo of clouds that I took is used in the background
•Calligraphy site used for generating stylized Chinese characters which I traced over. [link]
•About the chinese characters from the Avatar wikia: “the characters can be translated to:
降世神通 - the divine medium who has descended upon the world (e.g. the Avatar).”
ohno it’s gorgeous
Finally done with these! KORRA GANGNAM STYLE!! I am just really obsessed with this song right now so I decided to do something about it…Just some fun/stupid sketches for the Korra fandom. :) There’s a possibility these may be up for sale as mini prints at the Kamira booth for Sakura Con 2013. I had fun making these.
