Excuse Me While I Fangirl: Legend of Korra Art

29 May

Legend of Korra Fanart

GUYS! There was no new Korra this weekend! EPIC SAD FACE. Curses upon you, Nickelodeon, for deciding to re-air the series premiere instead! If a recap is what you are searching for, Lisa @ Lisa Is Busy Nerding did an exceptional job with it. You should check it out. But to get me through my Korra Wednesday, I decided to give in to my minor obsession with Deviantart, the BEST website maybe EVER for fanart, prints, illustrations, photography, etc. It’s a great place to buy awesome prints from artists and also a SUPER place to indulge in nerdery. OBVIOUSLY I go there to see how other fans are interpreting some of my favorite fandoms: Korra, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, comic book characters, EVERYTHING. 

So without further ado, here are some of my favorite Deviantart images for Legend of Korra. Just a few. As always when I post images like this, click on the picture to enbiggen and check the source link in the caption. HOLLA and props to the artists, who are all amazing. Especially to a girl who’s stick figures are only vaguely humanoid. 

Love the illustration of Korra, Mako, and Bolin each drawn in their nation’s color. First time I saw this it reminded me of the Olympic rings. 

Umm, what? Legend of Korra stained glass artwork WITH Amon and mother effing AANG?! I’m a little bothered by how HUGE Amon is, but whatever. I’m a sucker for stained glass. So pretty!

Korra, going all avatar on our asses. Which hasn’t actually happened yet. I don’t think. I’m pretty sure I’d remember if Korra all of a sudden had eyes that glowed like that. But can you guys NOT EVEN WAIT ANYMORE to see Korra put a smackdown like this on Amon!? Me neither. 

*Fans self* Mako, even though you are a cartoon, you are FINE. I would never, EVER ask you to stop wearing your dad’s scarf, or make you wear a bathing suit that covered your insanely sculpted chest. I MIGHT ask you to wear that pageboy cap again, though. *fans self*

I had a hard time finding a picture where Bolin actually looked like a badass, but I like this one. He’s fistpumping that Earth! Guys, I LOVE Bolin. I don’t ship him and Korra, but I love him. His girl better be ACE. 

THIS is my ship…

…and THIS is why. THE GAZING. One of my favorite ways to cuddle. I love that his scarf is draped over her mouth, like they’re connected by it, and the way his hand is almost playing with her hair, which I LOVE x infinity. SIGH. LOVE.

I love a good black and white picture, friends, whether illustration or photo. This is so pretty. Just Korra and her polar bear dog together. Also, I WANT A NAGA so badly. Please and thank you.

GAH!! PABU!! So stinking adorable. And I love how he’s rolling around in Bolin’s noodle bowl. How could you not love this face?

The two avatars. LOVE IT.

      YAY!! I’m so glad you love it. I was totally thinking of you the whole time I was looking at the pictures. I added the Aang and Korra one just for you. SPEAKING OF AANG, I started watching TLA on Netflix the other day. Four eps in. Obviously I adore it. xoxo

    I’m a little bothered by how sexy Aang turned out, with that beard, and the shaved head, and WAIT YOU WERE TWELVE THIS IS NOT OKAY

    And yes, for the love of everything, when do we get some Avatar State action?!

    And wait, hang on, have you not seen the original show yet? Uncomfortably Sexy Adult Aang probably doesn’t bother you as much, then.

      I am watching The Last Airbender right now because, yes, I watched them out of order. Lisa was all, “YOU MUST WATCH KORRA” and so I did. I’m catching up now and loving it so far! 🙂

    DEVIANTART IS DA BOMB. It’s where I got all of my #Makorra screen saves. Because I have a COLLECTION of them. Kissing. And stuff.

    BUT ME LOVES THE SECOND ONE HERE. I think it’s so unique and creative and I love the colors. My sister said it looked something made for a prophecy or something and I think that’s apt. It tells a story. AND I LOVE THAT.

      OMG I love Deviantart. I stalk all the artists and favorite EVERYTHING. I found that one cuddly picture on a Makorra group page and DIED.
      Isn’t the stained glass so pretty as well?! I LOVE IT. You’re totally right about it telling a story.

    I was searching for some LoK stuff when I saw my picture on a website other than deviantART, so I starting thinking, “Aw crap, PLEASE tell me someone didn’t steal it!” So I click on it and I find out it’s being praised! I must admit, my eyes did water when I read the description, small as it may be, but thank you for crediting all of these pieces to their artists c: And I must say, I love all of these pictures!
