feelreds asked: another great red lotus piece. love it!
Thanks! I plan on doing more whenever I have the time. The Red Lotus backstory is a fun area to explore!
new-age-air-nomad asked: I really like your designs for the young Red Lotus :)
Thank you! Glad you like them : )
A young Ghazan and Ming Hua (with arms)! I imagined Ming Hua to lose her arms at some point between this drawing and the Legend of Korra timeline. Losing her arms changes a jovial Ming Hua to the dark and deadly Ming Hua we all know. But this also pushes her water bending skills above and beyond.
I was tempted to give Ghazan a mustache.. but I refrained.. Bolin is silly.. hahaha
Late night coloring. I’m aaaaalmooost done with this illustration.11x17
My good friend and talented artist, Kenji Ono, finally started a tumblr! The page features amazing artwork and visual process for Nora and Beta, a children’s book he’s developing and working on.
Kenji is currently a storyboard artist at DreamWorks animation. He also worked on Avatar the Last Airbender, Generator Rex, Turbo Fast, Kung Fu Panda: Legend of Awesomeness, DreamWorks Dragons— in other words: Go check out his tumblr and show some love for the talented guy!! Nora and Beta is going to be amazing!
osatosmind asked: Great work on Episode 11 of book 3!! One of the best fight scenes this season are in there!!! :D
Thank you!! I’ve been super excited for this episode to air, and I feel so lucky to have worked on this episode! A shoutout to olgaulanova! She helped me with this massive fight sequence! Couldn’t have done it without her. Book 3 is the best!!!
A Sasuke/Korra crossover request for my buddy, misterforgetful!! Sorry for the long wait.. been so busy!
TOMORROW: Don’t miss two brand new episodes of Korra, starting at 7/6c on Nick!
Hey! I directed episode 5, which features the Korra debut of kickass storyboard artist Eugene Lee, or misterunagi;in tumblrspeak. He boarded the shot used as the thumbnail above, as well as a bunch of other cool stuff in the show. Along with character acting specialist Natasha Wicke (she was responsible for a ton of the great acting details you’ll notice throughout episodes I directed, as well as some great action stuff) and Will Ruzicka, who did some funny Mako acting (which is pretty rare, right?) and put in a ton of hard work on a very difficult fight at the end of the show, my book 3 crew kicked all kinds of ass. I can say “ass,” right? Please don’t unfollow me because I said ass
I hope you guys like it! I thought Anne Heche did a great job as Su, and I think you’ll like getting introduced to rest of the metal clan. I mean, you and I have known each other for a while now. It’s fair to say I know your tastes, right? You’re gonna like it, I bet. For sure.
If you have any questions about the episode, send ‘em to my ask box and I’ll do my best to remember the answers. I finished my part on this episode like FOREVER ago, so remembering is an effort.
I forgot to mention my wonderful Assistant Director, Olga Ulanova. I think I left her out of the crew mentions because she was management level rather than crew level, but she did a ton of work getting everything in shape and adding tons of great stuff throughout Book 3 and Book 4.
Team 2!! The first episode I worked on, episode 5, will be airing this Friday! I feel so lucky and grateful to have worked on this episode with amazing artists!
Thank you Colin for all the shoutouts!
