what if the season didn’t open with bumi discovering his bending.  what if he thought his last few shoreleaves were a little too fruitful

I adore this alternate scenario XD

makanidotdot:

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

 Scribble it down

start to put on features

fix stuff

image

put on more stuff

image

fix stuff again

image

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

All great tips, plus bonus Zhao.

thank u to my friend zevri for opening my eyes to how well so many Ron Swanson lines go with Lin.

Also made me realize how much I want Lin and Mako to have a Ron and April thing going on.

got a request for hobo toph and opal, i’d been wanting to draw zhaofu toph and young opal so i did.  She’s telling opal about her old nonbender friend’s cool sword, and probably ruining something of Su’s to momentarily recreate it.

also did a age thing for my version of toph, kind of just to make sure I knew how I was getting from point A to point B.     also UGH GOD I GUESS I GOTTA GET ALL MY OLD TOPH STUFF OUT NOW BEFORE ITS’ NON CANON IN LIKE 3 WEEKS ALSO I REALLY AFRAID FOR TOPH LIKE OK AIWEI IS THE ONE WHO TOLD THE STORY ABOUT WHERE SHE WAS AND SHE IS PROBABLY THE ONLY OTHER ‘TRUTHSEER’ SO WHAT IF SHE’S NOT PARTY HOBO TOPH WHAT IF SHE’S CAPTIVE OR DOING SOMETHING NOT GOOD OR ????????????????? ok anyway

KORRA IS HEADING TO NEW YORK COMIC CON!!!
That’s right, Nickelodeon is hosting a Legend of Korra panel at New York Comic Con on Thursday, October 9 at 5:15pm. Can’t wait to see you there!
Be on the look-out for more news about NYCC (and Book 4) as we get closer to October :)

NYCC Korra Panel, Thursday 10/9 at 5:15!
BEHOLD: NEW HAIR! Korra’s design gets backs to its roots in Book 4, with a bob cut like the one Joaquim did in his original concept of her. It wouldn’t be the Avatarverse without some hairstyle changes, now would it?
(Joaquim, Studio Mir, and I drew the Korra above, Lauren Zurcher painted the background, and I did the color.)
