Legend of Korra sketches by inklou Legend of Korra sketches by inklou
argh I'm sorry for meandering away from commissions for a bit cus I made the grave mistake of watching Legend of korra (yes, I promised myself I wouldn't touch that goddamn show until I've outgrown my other fandoms cus I know I wouldn't be able to handle them all). So now I'm a little obsessed despite the super lame season finale.

So uh anyway have some Korra characters. It was really...awkward trying to translate their names back to Chinese because if you know this language you'd know most of their names aren't translatable since they were pretty much borrowed from different cultures and then mixed into a mess lol. But that's pretty rad of the creators to do that though. Makes things less linear!

So uh, excuse my hilariously bad attempt at translating them, if you can read them that is.

And yeah Tahno the "not-really-an-asshole" asshole is my favourite character deal with it.

You don't need me to tell you how beautiful this is.

Also, I'm a Tahno fan, too, and am revising a fanfic short story about him. I'll link you if you're interested.

Anyway. You're an inspiration for artists, and your tutorials are really helpful!

Tahno.... <3
Let me just say, I think you captured their personalities perfectly, not to mention I love the rough sketchy art feel to it. And that the faces, poses, are at different angles displaying your skill for different facial positions and expressions, which you certainly have! (Skill, that is) I really love this!

This is really good. I like how it seems to be a watercolor too. My Chinese is pretty bad. I tried to translate the names a while back and all I got was Jinora's name.

Nicely done, mind if I try naming all of them?

Tarrlok, Iroh II, Amon/Noatak, Asami, Tahno, and Jinora.
Am I right? Admittedly most of them are kind of obvious...

yessssss :D omg I was a little worried people wouldn't recognize them if I don't put in tags in the artist comments, since I sometimes doubt my skills when it comes to likeness hahaha //shot But then again, the creative team has pretty much nailed the designs, all of them are very iconic and unique!

Oh no, the likeness in this case was quite good. I just wouldn't have paid it any attention had you not pointed it out. Might have on later observation, but not initially like I did after reading your comments underneath.

And I'm so glad I'm not the only one disappointed by the season finale.
