This is one of my favorite Bolin drawings from the cabinets in the Korra production area, by Eugene Lee, in a style reminiscent of Koji Morimoto. Apparently Eugene drew it here so Bolin would stare into Colin’s office.
For some reason, this “tight rough” for the second piece of press art we released didn’t make it into the Korra art book, but I like it so I’m posting it here. I based it off of a storyboard panel of Joaquim’s from the premiere episode, and he did some further revisions on top of my drawing, which are included here in what you might call a “jam.” I wouldn’t call it that. Without wincing.
Sorry again for the lack of posts! Our production schedule is simply brutal as we are working on Books 2, 3, and 4 simultaneously, and I have little time for anything else once I try to fit “being a human being” in there. Such is the nature of TV production and its protracted, overlapping schedules… Despite the absence and the delays (which are all symptomatic of The Difficulty of Making Animation and little or nothing else), I would (as I have in the past) humbly ask you for your continued patience: It is a good year to be a Korra fan, and a lot of great stuff is coming down the pipeline that we are excited to announce (when we are permitted to announce it) and to share with you all. Thanks, sincerely!
happy mother’s day, moms
Part two of our Korra Book 1 foley demo series!
Hey guys, sorry I haven’t posted much lately. Hopefully I’ll get a pass since it is due to being busy making Korra.
Here’s another collection of soloed foley audio from Book 1 of Korra from Aran Tanchum for your enjoyment!
I’m excited to share this with you guys: part 1 of a series of Legend of Korra Book 1 foley demos. All the sound you hear, with the exception of dialogue, is foley. I urge you to listen with headphones or on a decent set of speakers. Look out for the other two parts coming soon!
Check out one sonic component that makes up the audio smorgasbord in Korra: foley. Thanks, Aran & Vinny!
I’m excited to share with you the final cover art (Korra drawn by Joaquim Dos Santos and painted by me, with a background painting by Fred Stewart) for the upcoming Korra Book One: Air art book, published by our good friends at Dark Horse Books. This was a real labor of love (heavy on the labor) for Mike, Joaquim, and me and all those who helped as we put this book together, and we are so proud of all the great artists’ work inside and can’t wait to share it with all of you. The plan is to do one of these art books per “book” of Korra (so four total), which is daunting yet fantastic.

Very cool fanart of a scene that I storyboarded. I keep reading the artist’s name as Sapphire Fire though.
EDIT: Sorry, I didn’t realize the artist has a Tumblr and had posted this piece there. Here’s a link to that post.
Sensual Bolin by Eugene Lee (storyboard artist) and turdish Mako by Owen Sullivan (assistant director) on the Korra cabinets.
My day is complete.
I don’t want Korra to end yet ಥ_ಥ
Very cool piece of 3D Amon fanart done in ZBrush.
Here’s my Picard post-Locutus fanart to accompany Part 2 of my appearance on The Big Pull Podcast, which is up now. Here are links on iTunes and Podbay. We finally make it to our top two personal favorite episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, among many other things, some of which may interest you… if you’re into… things, and such. Much more eloquent on the podcast, I assure you! Hope you enjoy.
My mind was quite blown by this.

Joaquim just forwarded this to me. HOLY MOLY! Watching something like this makes me forget all the pain of making animation, at least momentarily. What a joy. Can’t wait to see the whole piece.
P.S. I have since been told this is the whole piece, that it is a trailer for an upcoming comic. Sigh… that’s cool, but it would obviously be great to see this as a complete animated film.
