Legend of Korra by YoriNarpati Legend of Korra by YoriNarpati
:iconreadplz:

It's finally finished! The new Team Avatar! I am officially obsessed with this series. I've only watched the first two episodes, and I'm already hooked! It'll definitely be a great series. The fighting sequences are so good! I'm on the edge of my seat every time Korra bends. SHE'S SO BADASS!!!
And the brothers, my GOD they're awesome too. I love them both so much! Bryke has definitely done it again, wonderful! Just wonderful!

Okay, so onto the drawing itself. It's been quite a while since I made a complicated drawing like this one. At first I struggled with the pose, because I'm not used to drawing action poses, but it turned out quite well. I do hope you'll like it! Comments would be very very much appreciated. I love feedback.

A visual work of art that captures the fluidity of not just the elements but the characters as well. The color and lighting effects are all spectacular for the eyes to enjoy to the point where you can not help but stare at it for long as possible. The details are definitely breath-taken; Mako's fire is like a swirling flame-orb that helps give this work the warm, Korra's water whip is not only blue and brilliant in color but it is also down transparently...an effect I find difficult to perform!

Not only does this work capture the powers of these threesome and their elemental bending ability, but also the strength of their unity and their friendship. It is literally screaming, "The new Team Avatar!"

This image is definitely mid-combat. That's apparent from the determined expressions on each of the characters' faces. The style is dramatic and bold, almost impressionistic but cleaner. I especially like the lighting and how the background doesn't take away from the action of the character's poses. The colors are bold and play well off each other, giving an earthy feel to the piece but the blues, reds and greens contrast enough to balance out all the brown. You don't lose Korra's dark skin to the background and the shadows and lines do well to preserve that.

The costumes and details of the character's themselves are spot on and the expressions of the characters individually represents their dominant traits. Bolin's is sweeter and softer though he's still obviously concentrated. This shows his more light-hearted nature. Mako's is obviously more intense and this highlights his broody personality. Korra's expression looks almost as if she's challenging the viewer/her attacker, a confrontational attitude we know her to possess.

There are minor trifles that I find wrong with this piece. One is the casting of light off Mako's fire. The arm looks like it lines up to the side, not slightly forward like the light on Mako's face suggests. I recommend tweaking the highlights on his face to reinforce the location of the fire relative to his body. Also, Mako's brow looks a little too pronounced to fit the character. This might be a result of the deep and dramatic shadows.

The reason I give four stars instead of 5 because this looks a lot like the first Korra poster and I can see that inspiration was drawn (pardon the pun) from it.
