First of I would like to say that I really like the LoK series, even though it hasn't been out the that long :)

The body and face is very well drawn, and I can see that smirk in her face from miles away. The anatomy is good, but it may need some work. I know it's hard to get where the waist and upper body should be positioned, and I think you did a good job. But the waist should be more noticeable. Her chest really nice, but maybe a little short in the shoulders? It could be your kind of drawing style too that does that, but if you made her ribcage and shoulders a little larger it would fit well with her hips. :)

I like the colors in this piece, too bad it's a little too dark. I know what kind of effect you wanted to make, but maybe you should try to lighten up the lighter areas a little more next time.(Or let it show more) I'm not saying it's bad, but would make the whole picture more inviting :) And easier to notice. The dark areas consume the whole picture a lot and can be a little overwhelming.

But in the end it's very well made picture and I think you have a lot of good elements you can say your more than capable of handling :) I love this piece, and that not only because I'm a fan, but because you made look really good!

There are a ton of pieces of Korra fan art out there featuring Korra with either fire or water or both in her hand and looking at the viewer. I have yet to see one of her in combat. That's the only reason you lose points on originality. I do very much like this one as you have implemented a style similar yet different from the show, however.

Your coloring on this is very good. I like how Korra stands out from the warm colors of the background but still looks like she belongs in the picture.

The only thing that actually bothers me about this piece is how intense the shadows are. The contrast in the different light levels is just too much. I know that in the anime style shadows are usually hard-edged. But, the shading in this picture goes from highly visible to almost black.

Overall, I think it's a good piece, though. I hope that this was helpful.

This looks great and I find it rather funny that Korra who is a water bender by nature seems to love using fire bending the most.

I think that's really funny too. xD It goes well with her personality. She's awfully firey. My friend and I joke that she should have been the next Fire Nation Avatar.

Yeah but we would have to go through water and earth first.

And I'm curious to see how bg a role Aang plays in the show;because in the original Avatar Aang relyed on the knowledge of his past lives

:iconrock-bomber:
Rock-Bomber Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Ya, and that would have sucked to wait.

Me too! I can tell Aang is going to play a big role for Korra, assuming that she can get the hang of the spiritual side of the Avatar. She's certainly not as meditative as Aang was. But it did take a few episodes for Aang to effectively call upon Roku for help. So far, Korra's only involuntarily seen a flashback of Aang's life, which I bet is going to have a bigger part in this season along with the "problem" Aang previously had in Republic City before Amon. *rambles on*

Yeah it would have been long wait like in the original Avatar.

Yeah Aang will play a big role I'm sure just like how Roku played a big part in Aang's life.And the reason Aang was so much better at meditation was because he was a young air bending master which made it easier for him,but in Kora's case she is hard headed which doesn't really work well for meditation.The thing that has me so confused is Amon because the power to remove one's bending through spirt bending can only be done by a fully realized avatar.Which brings up another curious thing because I wonder when Kora will start airbending and become a fully realized avatar.

And I wonder when Kora starts airbender if she will be allowed to use it in probending

Rock-Bomber Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Indeed, I agree. Though I can't help but feel like Aang MIGHT not play as big a role as he should. Because when you think about it, Aang didn't have anyone left to guide him and tell him what he needs to do as the Avatar. But Korra has tons of people backing her up and helping her understand the Avatar's role in society.
Amon is also very intriguing huh? I was freaking out when I saw him take bending away! xD But there are some people who are very closely analyzing what Amon was doing (almost too close if you ask me) but check this out: [link]

I donno if this is really true... but maybe.. just maybe this will play a role in the fight against Amon later.

And you know what!! I'm curious about airbending in pro bending too! But... I don't think Korra will be allowed to use airbending. 1) She's only allowed to bend one element and 2) Airbenders haven't been considered into the probending rules yet... Maybe when there are many more airbenders, the probending establishment might consider adding them in. But it seems against their practices to fight like a probender. When you look at how Aang was, you'd notice that he's a much more passive/evasive fighter or rather he'd prefer to avoid conflict. I donno.. xD;; I talk too much

Well I don't think the past lives will play a big role but I'm sure that they will have some key role to play.Because when you look at Aang's case he was mainly influenced by Roku and his past lives didn't play a big role until Sozen's comet came and Aang sought the wisdom of his past lives.But I know one past life Korra would get along with well and that would be Avatar Kyoshi because Korra and Kyoshi are very similar.Plus Aang has already come into play because she fough Amon on Aang's island

I'm curious as to why some people are putting so much effort into studying Amon's power,but my running theory is he is a descendant of a past avatar(like Zuko) and he somehow managed to inherited the ability to be an energy bender which only avatars can do.

Well that is what makes me wonder though because air bending and fire bending are virtually the same because you don't have to have a tangible element to bend fire and air like you do when you bend water or earth.And even if she is allowed only one element her being the avatar she can use all four and since fire and earth are covered she has waterbending and airbending.And they can't claim that she is doing anything against the rules because she would only be bending one of the four elements.And you have to remember Aang was raised as an airbender and they are taught to be passive but even though he had a passive nature he had to do some things and airbender wouldn't normally do and when he was on the giant lion-turtle even his past airbending life Avatar Yangchen told Aang to kill the firelord.

For sure. I really think that Korra will have to talk with Aang about the energy bending though, because Aang was the only avatar so far to know how to do it.

Me too, sometimes I think it's ridiculous the theories people come up with for these things. That's an interesting idea, but I'm not so sure about that.. If you remember when the Lion Turtle taught Aang about energy bending, the Lion Turtle said that in the time before the Avatar and the 4 elements, everyone used to bend the energy within themselves. So it's entirely possible that this isn't JUST an Avatar thing.

Well my point with Korra and airbending in probending is that, you can only have one person represent ONE element on the team. So, Korra represents Water and only water. If Mako were not able to fight, Korra wouldn't be allowed to fill in for him or something.
And while that is true, Yang Chen went against the morals she was raised on as an Airbender. But, she told him to kill Ozai because Aang was the Avatar, who's duty is to the whole world and not just one nation. So, that being said, not every Airbender should be expected to go against their lineage if they are raised like a traditional Airbender... Unless they're just rebellious or something..
