Feature: The Legend of Korra

Sun Jun 24, 2012, 4:13 PM
Featuring: The Legend of Korra

The Legend of Korra is an American animated television series that premiered on the Nickelodeon television network on April 14, 2012. The series is a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, which aired on the same network from 2005 to 2008.

The series takes place 70 years after the original

When technology has advanced to that of around the 1920s on Earth. In it, some people have the ability known as "bending" by which they control and manipulate either water, earth, fire, or air. One bender, known as the "Avatar" and described as the "physical embodiment of the world's spirit", has the power to bend all four elements and is responsible for maintaining both the balance of nature and peace between the world's four great nations.

Korra, the protagonist of the new series, is the next incarnation of the Avatar after Aang of the original series. Creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko follow Korra as she learns the art of airbending, having mastered the other three elements, while facing an anti-bender revolution by a group known as the Equalists.

The first season of the series consisted of 12 episodes, which culminated with a 2 episodes special last saturday, June 23rd.

A second season with 14 episodes has been already announced.

I've said it before: fanart is not unfamilar to DA. Fans from all over the world devote their artistic abilities and inspiration to create amazing pieces of art to recreate their favourite characters, scenes, what was or what could have been.

Now with the season finale from last saturday, a mix of both positive and negative opinions have flooded the internet, specially on sites like tumblr and deviantArt. Through pieces of art, journals and blogs the fans have been demostrating their reaction to the end of this first season. It doesn't matter if they loved it or hated it, (because is really hard to stay on middle ground) the same passion for the show is evident in each post.

Now to commemorate the end of this first part of The Legend of Korra, this article intends to showcase some of these artworks devoted to the show. Enjoy!

Actually, the whole reason the series was rushed is because the whole plan from the beginning is to create a mini-series.

I'm no expert on this, but according to the research I've done, some of the animation is done in the US at Nickelodeon, Studio Mir in South Korea (they also worked on AtLA), and Technicolor in India (CG vehicles). I don't know much about the working conditions at Technicolor, but their website seems pretty legit (they have documents about corporate ethics, etc. and they do a lot of work for Nick, Dreamworks, etc.). Studio Mir does not seem to have sweatshop working conditions from what I've seen. Animation in South Korea is pretty serious since people go to animation college and they do a lot of animation for overseas. Maybe it'd be different if, say, it was North Korea, but otherwise, I haven't found anything that supports what your friend said.

Avatar: The Legend of Aang was the major inspiration that got me up and drawing, because I thought the style was just so amazing. I'm /so/ glad that I found it, because I can't imagine not drawing the way I do today :D The Legend of Korra, while there were some points I kinda disagreed with, I loved it. Ignoring the romance, the story was great and could have even been better had some points not been so rushed.

Oh, I wasn't trying to imply that you were blaming anyone, I'm sorry if it seemed like that. I was just letting you know there was a reasonable reason for it. Sorry again.

When I heard there was a season two, I figured that would be the exact case. Like Katara would say something like "She can still bend, but will have to learn all over again" or something XD
