A SD Thank You Korra by will-Ruzicka A SD Thank You Korra by will-Ruzicka
So I usually check DA fairly often, and maybe I get like one or two new watchers every so often, mostly when I post something new.
This weekend, however, I was busy helping my sister move, and when I checked my messages I had over 85 new watchers! I'm not really sure what happened!
Now, I usually leave thank you messages to people watching me, nothing special, just something to acknowledge them and show some gratitude... however, with 85+ messages Deviant Art thought I was spamming people... so instead I drew up a quick SD Korra to say thanks to everyone who is watching me!

I guess I'm one of those people who watched you recently! Seeing as you posted a thank-you message on my profile :lol: It could very well be because tumblr is spreading your art. I found you through that site admittedly :aww: Love your art!

I'd posted my own stuff to Tumblr, and got a lot of reblogs that way. And apparently someone tweeted the image too. So a mix of the two, yeah.

Thank you! Glad you like my stuff. ^^

Awesome Picture! If this is how you thank people who watch you then I'm doubly glad I stated watching you. :D

Maybe some of the other watchers are people like me who started watching after @KorraLegend tweeted a link to your drawing of Korra fixing her hair.

After seeing that and some of the other awesome stuff you make it was easy to tell you're someone whose future stuff I would like to see.

Ah ha! A Tweet! That is probably it. I don't use twitter much, so I forget about it's powers of promotion. But I figured it had to be someone other than me posting about the other Korra picture. ^^

Sadly work keeps me from posting as much as I would like to. But last night was a surprise and I wanted to do something in response.

Something must have been blogged without my knowledge, because my Korra pj post is dead, as are my others. So some kind person out there must have blogged something their selves.

1. Because you are AWESOME!!! 2. Because your art is FANTASTIC and has a great feel to it. 3. ....Because a LOT of people love Legend of Korra xD So any picture you post based off of LoK is sure to gain other people's attention. ESPECIALLY since you're working on the show. Great job again, man! She's so ADORABLE.

Thank you very much. I'm glad my stuff is being well received. Sometimes drawing the characters right can be hard. But at least it's not as hard as drawing the transformers on model. O.o

Drawing Transformers based off of the model can be very difficult to draw, fun! but difficult. Your work is fantastic though ^^ I really love all of your artwork from Prime to Korra :3 Hope to see you draw some of the other characters as well ^^

I'm working on a very Korra-centric scene right now at work, so she's on my mind a lot.

Completely understandable! All work and no play would makes Jack a dull boy and Jill a dull girl. So it's good to get your creativity and imagination out in doodles outside of the work you're already doing :3

That's what's weird.. The last Korra piece seemed to be losing interest on Tumblr. Unless someone else blogged it? I suppose that might be it.

LOL don't say that or they will somehow tie Nendoroid sales into Korra's show survival. Kidding Kidding.

Hahah, well then! :lmao: It was pretty cool, I think Iron Man is Marvel's "Batman" if they would stop trying to make Wolverine play that role (which he cannot), that would help them a lot, but, I am just be a humble fan.

(This might get me trouble) If you ask me, the show's problem is it's over-whelming blandness. (Korra's) There's no sense of adventure, like we're going on a magical journey, it's more in the tone of "Whelp, this is Korra...she's pretty cute...and here's everyone's kids so you know it turned out okay...and here's some random bad guys....they don't like the Korra, Korra is in a political situation "

Forgive me to say, when I saw that stuff in the first 2 episodes I doubled over laughing imagining kids wondering why Korra just didn't punch out the grumpy adults who tell Korra "no" that stuff is going to fly over their heads, political stuff flies over adult's heads.

It also suffers from what a lot of sequels suffer from, Korra's case, changing the premise so harshly in a way that hurts what the fans liked about the original. The original was simple and wacky, and I'm sorry to say, that is what happened to G.I. Joe Renegades as well, they turned G.I. Joe into the A-Team for some reason, but all fans wanted was Cobra Commander running around yelling because G.I. Joe stopped him from launching the Statue of Liberty into space. Good Guys vs Bad Guys, with some adventure and comedy.

Everything in the modern era of cartooning is trying to be so dark and serious, I think they forget they are going to work for places called Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and disney, then they wonder why they get canceled, when their all so "epic stories" go over kid's heads and they just want to see cool martial arts or bad guys getting caught.

But. I could be totally wrong, sorry for all that, just my take on it. :lmao:

Personally I love Korra. I love everything about it. I don't see how anyone could think of it as bland. I don't think there was a single episode where I didn't double over laughing.

I think it lives up to my expectations of a continuation of the world we were introduced to by ATLA.

Any changes from the original show are welcome to me. It is a little bit more serious, but not a whole lot. It's just switched from being geared toward kids to being geared towards teens.

I hardly think I would describe the show as dark, either. Probably the darkest thing in the show is the blood-bending which was also in the original show (and awesome in both)
