It’s great to be back in Seoul visiting our friends at Studio Mir. Here are some exquisite original animation drawings of Wan and Tahno framed in their lobby gallery.
I reblogged a shot of this guy cosplaying Tahno a few weeks ago (unless I’m confused, which has been known to happen), and I’ve seen some awesome, high-quality shots of these two reenacting Tahno and Korra scenes from Book 1 on deviantART. It was great to meet them in person. They might have won the Smirk Award.
EDIT: Looks like from the notes that I may have been confused after all. So, seems like there are two stellar Tahno cosplayers out there. I THINK THEY SHOULD DO BATTLE!
I’ve seen other shots of this stupendous Tahno cosplay in the past, but I don’t think I ever got around to posting any.
The Wolfbat Approves
starring Tahnly Tembleturgiss
This is the first, quick concept I did of Tahno, the team captain of the Wolf-bats, voiced by the great Rami Malek from HBO’s The Pacific. The character was largely inspired by the ridiculously over the top Japanese kickboxer Kizaemon Saiga, whose ridiculous antics include having his cornermen fix his hair with a mirror between rounds in K-1 matches. Ryu whipped up Tahno’s character design (which I think Korra Nation released) based on this concept, to which I made some minor tweaks, and there you have the character we love to hate.
