I remember back in the Avatar days… the typical fanart we would get would be a charming, childish crayon drawing stuffed in an envelope. Nowadays on Korra, I take a skewed screenshot with my phone, post it, and shortly thereafter someone un-skews it, crops it, separates the character levels, clones the background, “Ken Burns” it with a multilevel slide, animates the characters blinking and talking, tints it, and makes a GIF out of it, that I then see on the same phone with which I took the original picture. Times they are a-changin’…
P.S. In case it is unclear, I’m not upset, I’m just amused and amazed.
EDIT: Wait, I got it! A more appropriate classification for this: not fan art, but a fan retake.
First off, here’s an update video for the Korra Artshow. I won’t be able to make it WHICH IS A HUGE BUMMER but I do have a couple pieces that will be on the gallery walls! And that is AWESOME.
Anyway, I was thinking about Atlas and how he had the world on his shoulders and how that could relate to the position of the Avatar. I just wanted to draw a sketch to practice the pose and ended up coloring it. Don’t really know what I was going for but practice pictures don’t need to ever make sense. Although I wouldn’t find it surprsing if Korra could chuck a boulder at her enemies with her bare hands if she wanted to :J
Korra belongs to Mike and Bryan
