The Advanced Forms of Bending: Part 2
For some reason, this “tight rough” for the second piece of press art we released didn’t make it into the Korra art book, but I like it so I’m posting it here. I based it off of a storyboard panel of Joaquim’s from the premiere episode, and he did some further revisions on top of my drawing, which are included here in what you might call a “jam.” I wouldn’t call it that. Without wincing.
Sorry again for the lack of posts! Our production schedule is simply brutal as we are working on Books 2, 3, and 4 simultaneously, and I have little time for anything else once I try to fit “being a human being” in there. Such is the nature of TV production and its protracted, overlapping schedules… Despite the absence and the delays (which are all symptomatic of The Difficulty of Making Animation and little or nothing else), I would (as I have in the past) humbly ask you for your continued patience: It is a good year to be a Korra fan, and a lot of great stuff is coming down the pipeline that we are excited to announce (when we are permitted to announce it) and to share with you all. Thanks, sincerely!
Masks from the Avatar World
Fan and Sword!
Avatars calling their animal guides.
And they thought Waterbending wasn’t sinister enough to be the antagonists for the ATLA…0.o
“Early on, we hit upon the idea that Korra had been sequestered away in the South Pole, which is why she didn’t grow up with any close friends and hadn’t seen much of the outside world. She spent her childhood mastering water-, earth-, and firebending.”
Well, it looks like I’m right about Korra’s childhood… though I kind of wish I wasn’t. =( =( =(
