Pretty much immediately after we made Naga, a staggering number of people suggested we should make a Pabu… and due to some late supplies, for a change we had a little spare time. This guy was a good exercise in ‘okay now make that 37% cuter. No, cuter than that even. Cuter. DANGEROUSLY CUTE.’.

Straight up cute isn’t necessarily something we do often (we’re weird, and like ugly/grumpy/monstrous things) so this was a bit of a departure.
Also a little tough to paint something 3-dimensional in a style that aped the animation…. but tough in a good way.

Like Naga, Pabu is articulated using ball and socket joints, from head to tail to toe. He’s a little under two feet long, so I THINK he’s roughly to scale. His head and feet are hand sculpted, then painted and sealed and assembled with his faux fur body.

We don’t often keep things, but Pabu is going to stay with us, and if all goes well, should be the perfect accessory to Bones’ costume for Costume Con in April.

Pabu and his design for those not in the know, are from a show we highly recommend you check out, The Legend of Korra.

Cute stuff! I really like the pose in the second pic.

We’ve been SUPER excited to finally post this one, and here she is. We’re both big fans of the show the Legend of Korra since friends strong-armed us into watching it last year (I watched almost all of season one in a single sitting) and Naga is pretty much amazing. If I had three wishes, having my own polarbear dog would be the number two, righ behind fiscal solvency (har har).

Our take on Naga is a one of a kind - there are no casts, and we won’t be doing this again. At 22” from nose to tail, she’s almost two feet long, and about 9.5” high at the withers… so she’s quite a big girl, and would be a proportionately suitable mount for some sizes of ball joint doll. She’s hand sculpted and painted, sealed and sewn with a collection of dense ice-white furs. She’s completely articulated with plastic joints that gives her a realistic range of movement, and the ability to hold a pose beautifully. Her tack made from a combination of nickle hardware, walnut coloured leather and felt, with a padded saddle blanket. It is removable via two separate hooks for the girth and breastcollar.

She is available for sale via silent auction.

A few human Raava concept sketches for the Beginnings AU with Kyonz!
Shortly after Raava begins traveling with Wan, she adopts a human form to better understand the way of the humans. Her initial appearance is older, but she de-ages as she grows weaker from Vaatu’s increasing power.

I designed Raava, but in all the time we worked on those episodes I never once thought of how she might look as a human. So it was a delight to see the flood of anthropomorphized fanart once the “Beginnings” episodes aired. In hindsight, it makes sense that people would imagine that, especially hearing her very-human voice, but for me she was always a kite-squid-spirit thing.
Of all the cool and amusing human interpretations of her and Vaatu, this is one of my favorites so far. Exquisite drawings. And I love the idea that she grows younger as her power wanes!

In celebration of my friend Carli Davidson’s phenomenal new book SHAKE here are some photos I took of my dog Gunther doing his thing at a pool party this summer. Puppet Korra & Friends show off their copy which was generously gifted by Carli. And Lisa Yang’s wall decal photo of her dog, the Yam, barks out some love for our copies.

I met a nice guy named Nick at the Nickelodeon Halloween party. He has an Avatar Wan costume in the works, but had already made this sweet little Raava in a teapot to accompany him.

I’m The Art Show, Deal With It! A Legend of Korra Tribute (by PixelDrip Gallery)

PixelDrip Gallery put together this great short documentary about the Korra fanart show they presented earlier this year. It was a wonderful event and this video does a nice job of showcasing a lot of the people and art that made it so special.

A note about the point I was making, or trying to make, at the end of the video: I think making fanart of all kinds (illustration, fan fiction, cosplay, sculpture, knitting, etc.) is fantastic. And I think making fanart as a stepping stone in order to create your worlds, characters, and stories is even better. I’m delighted, honored, and constantly amazed that people are inspired and motivated enough to dedicate their time and talent to making something based on the Avatar-verse. Mike and I have received some really nice letters from published authors who each said that writing fan fiction for ATLA is what gave them their start in writing. Countless artists and writers have inspired us and continue to do so, so it is wonderful to lift our noses from the grindstone once in a while to find that our work is doing the same for others. So as much as I enjoy fanart, I also want to see what amazing original ideas and artwork people have waiting to be unearthed from their heads and hearts.

My buddy Angus MacLane forwarded me the link to this terrific fanart LEGO Appa, by Legohaulic, who wrote:

"A commissioned model of Appa from Avatar.

The model features a removable saddle which can be replaced with a section that has no saddle.”

I love how the legs tilt back for flight, and the tail’s flexibility. Super clever.
