Noatak by YoriNarpati Noatak by YoriNarpati
:iconreadplz:

I really like Noatak/Amon's character. And I'm really really upset that he died in the finale. So I drew this to cheer myself up. It's not working though. :(
To be honest I was a bit disappointed with the finale. It wasn't horrible, but it's definitely below my expectations. Maybe because it's so fast paced? I don't really know.

Anyway, this is also to continue this series :

It's rougher than the others, but I'm too tired to fix anything. So I'm leaving it like this for a while.

Comments and faves are always appreciated! And leave me a critique if you have the time, I'd be really greatful!

I rarely write critiques, but this is amazing, I'll admit, I'm a big LOK and ATLA fan, so I'll attempt to be fair.
It's expressive, the lighting is quite nice, I rarely see people come at pictures with the angle, so composition is original enough, and it's accurate, you got Amon/Noatak's outfitting correctly, and even the expression is right, it's accurate!
I do have one issue with this picture however super awesome (XD) it is a bit...close. If you could zoom out just a bit and show the water, not even the other Equalists, it could improve the picture, just my opinion, but still stunning.

That's all!

I've yet to write critiques but here it goes. :)
This drawing is amazing. You shading is briliantly done. The hair looks as if it's actually flowing in the wind.
I do however, think the hand looks a bit sketchyer than the rest of the drawing, and the water looks slightly more like lightning. And i do agree with jirachithegreat, that if you zoomed out slightly more, it would greatly affect the drawing's drama. The thumb also looks like it was slightly cut out, maybe you accidentally went over it with that color you used for shading.
but, Other than that this picture is so awesome! :)

I'm more upset that he's a bender in the finale.

I wanted him to be the Batman of villains. No powers, but kicks ass anyway.

i think it was face-paced because aang and katara got together after 3 seasons and Korra and Mako got together after a couple of episodes

I don't mind him dying, the death scene was properly done, it wasn't a pathetic defeat like Ozai's.

The only thing that annoys me is the fact that he is a bender... I really didn't want him to be one. I wanted him to be like the villain version of Batman. No powers, yet can still kick ass.

He is possibly one of the very few animated villains that a) had me scared shitless of him from start to finish, b) was competent as fuck and continually proved it, and c) managed to make me feel so incredibly sorry for him in the end. Say what you will about Legend of Korra, but THIS GUY makes it ALL worth it... :nod:

I really like this one; the roughness kind of goes with the scene. There is a nice sense of movement and I like how the water kind of frames his body.

Wow! I can't critique artwork ('cause I don't really know what to say in a critique, should it be something about the elements of design and media used?)- but I'll leave a comment! Powerfully drawn and coloured, I say! The movement is beautiful!

I agree with the fast paced and disapointment of the finale.

I really don't believe Noatak/Amon is dead though, since he was THE bad guy. If they had established somebody working over him I would say "okay, yeah, they killed him off" but you cant just go killing the main baddie after just saying who he is... Its not good story writing.

I actually love the roughness of this image, because its very much like the roughness of the character.

Great work! ^^

:love: Such gorgeous lighting and dramatic shades! I really love this piece! (And no, I'm not saying that just because Amon is such an awesome character XD) Your art is amazing!! :meow:

Also, I too was disappointed with the finale. I made up a completely headcannon version to replace it. XD Hey, it may not be as nice as if it were reality, but at least it somewhat cheers you up... :shrug:

I actually really do like the roughness of this. I think it suits the character and the mood you chose to put him in in this drawing..... it's less solid and more movement focused.

Nicely done!! I love the sketchy look this painting has. I know you probably might not be fixing it, but in case you do, you can add a little more foam and spray in the water.
*Spoilers below. Read at own risk*




Also, i was sort of disappointed with the ending too. Yes, it was too fast paced. The ending wasnt fit for Amon's story. And, I didnt like how easily she got her bending fixed and helped out others.
