korrasTail by will-Ruzicka korrasTail by will-Ruzicka
So Ang :iconflyingmilkpig: at work was bugging me that I haven't posted anything to my tumblr in awhile, and she's right, so I took a time out from working on Legend of Korra storyboards to draw... Korra.
I haven't drawn her for myself wearing her actual costume yet, so I thought I best do that. I knew I wanted to draw her armpits... with her muscly arms and such... so I drew her fixing her ponytail thing... I think it might have come out a little more "sexy" than I originally intended.

This is awesome! I really like the details, especially the muscles. Though I like her ponytail, I would definitely would like to see more of her hair down. On another note, How long does it take for you to do a drawing? Do you have any tips for beginning artists?

I won't lie, I had some reference photos for the muscles on this one.

I like drawing heroes beat up for some reason... I think they just look like badasses beat up. It might be because of my love for Empire Strikes Back or something... so if I ever get a chance, I'd love to draw Korra with her hair down, beat up and fighting a tough opponent or something.

Drawings take varying times for me... depends how well I know the subject matter.

Tips for beginners? Draw from real life, study life drawing, study your basics like perspective. Copying other artists you like is fine, don't trace because you learn nothing that way. If you do copy, don't share it online, it should just be for learning. Take classes if you can afford it. But avoid the For Profit schools like Academy of Art. And check online for tutorials... not sure if there are tutorials on basic stuff, most of the tutes I've looked up have been for more advanced crap. Hope that helps.

Thanks! Uhm... which scene do you mean? Part of Korra's leg? I think we've shown her legs lots of times... kicking and jumping and running, even.

I love how Korra's muscles look. I'm swooning over here, haha. I say you convince Bryan and Michael to do a beach episode like in A:TLA. Not saying I wanna see more of Korra's fabulous bod in the show... but, uh... I want to see her fabulous bod in the show (more like, I gotta know how toned her legs are). Hehe ^^;

Thanks a lot!
The beach episode was great in the original. And they had a pool episode in book one of Korra... just Korra didn't take a dip, which is upsetting. I mean, we know she's a better swimmer than any of the others (being a water bender, might be cheating, though)
I gotta be careful what I say here, because I wouldn't want to give anything away... but I think you will see Korra's toned legs at one point or another.

DUDE! I was major disappoint that Korra was like "Lemme show you how it's done," hahaha.

If I gotta wait as long as Book 4, I totally don't mind! As long as I can creep on dem legs. Haha.

I gotta say man, I really love this pic. Korra is definitely one of my favorite female characters. I think you did a great job of showing her doing something as simple as fixing her hair but making it look so korra-y. If that makes any sense.

Korra reminds me a lot of the girl I have a crush on at the moment. Really cute, but not making a big deal about the way she looks. Focusing more on things like sports and friends. Unfortunately the girl I like doesn't fight bad guys and tyrannical blood-benders. That would easily make her the coolest (and hottest) girl living.

Thanks again for sharing your awesome work. Look forward to seeing more.

Also thanks for your contribution to making the show possible for us. You've got to have one of the coolest jobs ever. :D

Thank you very much! My initial urge was to try and come with some action pose thing, but this was what I really wanted to draw at the time. ^^

Good luck with your crush, you might need to learn fire bending and start doing your eyebrows like Mako to get her attention.

I can't describe how much I love this art of Korra. Her physique and her musculature are just so well defined, and really, what's not to love? It's just beautiful how you capture her personality with just a simple pose.

Can you please do a Mako one or one with the brothers? I'd love to see more from you! Thanks for all your hard work.

Well, I was already planning to draw more of them in my free time... I draw them for a living, but I can't show those for a long time...

I started on a Bolin and Mako one last night, but I'm not sure I like it... I might need to re-work it a bit.

Oh ok, I don't mean to add to any pressure because I'm aware that animating is a full-time job. ^^ It must be really rewarding drawing these characters and bringing them to life, and then getting positive feedback from the fans.
And what do you like most about drawing Korra?

Anyways, just wanted to say thank you for sharing your artistic talents with us.

No worries! I want to do some fan art anyway... It's lots of fun.
What I like most about drawing her specifically? (Muscles, maybe?) Or the show in general? (lots of amazing action and beautiful scenes and of course great characters) I was a fan of the show before I got on it, so it's hard not to gush. 9_9;
