The Legend by Phil-Sanchez The Legend by Phil-Sanchez
I love the Avatar series. So when I heard about the Korra Nation Fanart contest (judged by the show’s creators Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, where the winners will be featured at the San Diego Comic Con panel on the 19th), I knew I had to submit something, and—after many hours or work—here it is!

I toyed around with several different compositions before choosing this one. At first, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do: a lot of Korra pieces seem to be just a portrait with her doing some bending in it--which is great--but I really wanted to push myself to do more than that. I toyed around a bit with a more graphic design/styled approach, but I realized I really wanted to “tell a story” in my piece.

Ultimately, I settled on the composition you see above, and I was able to finish it just in time. (Actually, I would've liked to include a few more details and what-not, but my work time was cut short: the day the piece was due, I found it was due at 5PM EST, not 5PM PST--those last couple hours were pretty rushed!)

Anyways, hope you enjoy! Bring on Season 2!!!

Why does Korra look so pale? And like a white girl?

I'd say the lighting, but looking back on it, you're probably right, I probably should have tried to make her look a little less caucasian...oh well, live and learn I guess...
