Stoic and brooding, Mako has an aloof and dark personality, though he is not incapable of genuine kindness. He is responsible and controlling, due to living on the streets with his little brother since a young age. In light of the brothers' pasts, he has come to care deeply for Bolin and is very protective of him.- Mako, Avatar Wiki
Oh gosh.. I love him already.
After watching the first two episodes of Legend of Korra, I know I'm hooked. The animation is just stunning, especially the fighting sequences, I find myself catching my breath every time Korra bends. And the characters are very likable! I fell in love with Bolin instantly, and no need to mention Mako. He reminds me of Zuko (definitely), although no one can replace the awesomeness that is Zuko. I find myself really liking his character..
I can't wait until the official airing of the series in April!
I hope you'll like it! This painting started out just a doodle, but as usual, I got carried away. I've actually painted Mako couple of times before, mostly from last year. I'd like to think this one as a repaint of my previous (uglier) drawing of him,
. I'm quite happy with the improvement. And I would really really appreciate it if you guys leave a comment for me.. Pretty please with a cherry on top??
