The Legend Of Korra
18 x 24 acrylics and colored pencil on canvas board One of the younger guys at work suggested that I watch Avatar: The Last Airbender. I was hesitant at first. I had heard of it but figured it was just another kids cartoon similar to all the rest. ( Little kid needs little monster to fight old adult man with big monster.) I saw it was streaming on Netflix and decided to give a go. WOW!!! I absolutely loved it. It was incredible from start to finish. I finished the entire series in about a month. Then, just as I was wrapping up this series, I learn that they were doing a follow up series. I was skeptical that they could recapture the "magic" of the original Team Avatar. I was dead wrong. I think Legend of Korra is insanely entertaining, smart, a bit more mature and the animation is top notch. I am a fan. Side note: I rented that Last Airbender movie I remember everyone being mad about. I chalked it up to fanboy fanaticism. .......... Good Lord was that movie awful. I found myself getting so MAD while watching this turd! ONG!!?? ONG!!?? Really? By the way, if anyone is interested in purchasing this, send me a note here on DeviantArt.
