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.
It has been too long since I drew something for this blog.
I’m having fun looking through the roughs for these old DVD covers. This one is from October of 2005, and is a rare case where I am actually happy with the final version, even now. I like this sketch too, though. This piece always felt very serene to me.
We had this idea that Korra could not airbend. She had a block. And any time we talked about having it earlier in the season, we felt like we weren’t satisfied. If that’s what this season is about, her learning airbending - the season is called air. It’s gotta be a pivotal thing and the moment that she breaks through - for me, it’s the moment she’s not thinking about herself. Korra’s a very self-centered character. She’s very confident. But that is actually not what she needed. She needed to be selfless.

BRYKE IS ACTUALLY MAKING COMMENTARY
AND THE THING ABOUT KORRA AND AIRBENDING
SHE AIRBENDED CAUSE OF MAKOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I love what they said about her getting over her block because she finally wasn’t thinking of herself.
THERE. Everyone who was like “She didn’t do anything to get through her block”
YES SHE DID
She started thinking about someone else. <3333333
THAT’S IT I SHOULD REALLY WATCH THE COMMENTARIES NOW
I LOVE BRYKE
