Huh? Huh? Have yuh?
Just the other day, IGN released exclusive new footage from Korra Book 2. Well to be frank, it wasn't exactly a lot of footage but it was still enough to send the Korra fandom spiraling into existence once again.
So, I shall ask again, anyone saw the footage?
Let me know so that the fangirlling shall commence.
If not, still let me know so that I can send you the link to it. But I'm sure by now every Tom, Dick and Jane probably saw it, right?
For those who asked, here is the footage
Legend of Korra ReviewI never watched the original Avatar: the Last Airbender series in its entirety due to both lack of time and the length of the series. I've seen a handful of episodes, but aside from those, a lot of what I know of ATLA comes from spoilers, wikis, and fanworks. There's a chance I may finish the series someday, but for now I'll have to settle for Korra, which brings me to the main point of this entry.Legend of Korra Review3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I recently finished watching the first two episodes of the Legend of Korra and, to be honest, during the initial stages of advertising when they put emphasis on a "hotheaded" young girl with a "fiery personality" that was "ready to take on the world" I was initially unsure how to feel. Male or female, "hotheaded" protagonists are a fairly frequent occurrence in fiction, and a number of times can be pretty irritating as far as leading characters go, in my opinion. A part of me was somewhat apprehensive in how they would handle Korra and over the possibility of her "hotheaded" personality bein
No New Korra On Tonight.The Nick.com Korra site lists Korra as now airing on Fridays at 8. This seems to officially be its new time slot starting with “The Guide” on November 1st.No New Korra On Tonight.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nickelodeon initially scheduled Korra for 7pm on Fridays. Many criticized the move from Saturdays, but it was mostly par for the course. Friday nights bring slightly lower ratings, but Nickelodeon knew that and likely had lower expectations ratings wise. In addition Nick supported Korra at 7 with a 6:30 Spongebob lead-in (lead-in being the program that precedes a show). Lead-in is likely the most relevant of all ratings factors, and Nick put its highest rated show going into Korra.
Korra premiered down, but it was in line with all of Nickelodeon’s decreasing ratings. The problem came when Nickelodeon, likely trying to change things up on their overall diminishing ratings, moved Korra to 8:30. Not only did they force a time change on viewers less than a week before airing, they took away Korra’s Spongebob lead

Korra Problems Part 2After reading through the comments on my last journal (http://tompreston.deviantart.com/journal/New-Korra-Trailer-Released-386752726) it was apparent I wasn't very clear about what I meant when the producers knew at the end of the last episode that they had been picked up and could've changed the ending. Some of you thought that I meant they knew all along that Korra was meant to have more than one season, and that's not true. Korra was planned as a one season show, and it was through it's popularity while airing that Nickelodeon greenlit the next several seasons. However, that doesn't excuse the rushed ending and I wanted to explain why, but it's gonna take a little bit since I need to explain a bit about american animation productions first.Korra Problems Part 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now keep in mind, a lot of this journal will be speculation since I didn't work on Korra and have no privy to the actual behind the scenes workings. However, I do know a lot about american TV animation production to make some educated guesses and
So Korra Fans, You've All Heard The News...There's no ambiguity about it anymore. The creators have publically confirmed it. It's canon. Here's it is in writing:So Korra Fans, You've All Heard The News...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Obviously I'm not surprised since to me it was insanely obvious what they were implying with that scene and it really wasn't ambiguous to me (or many people I'm happy to say), so to some extent it's a shame that the creators have been needed to up and confirm it. Granted it's been quite an interesting few days just seeing the way people are reacting to it, and honestly - whether they saw it or didn't - it's great that such a show like Korra gets to leave by making a bang.
Perhaps the most heartwarming thing about this is the overall reactions to it. Naturally there's been the homophobic outcries of Avatar being 'ruined forever' by the wretch of humanity, but I'm so happy by the number of positive reactions the ending has gotten. That really warms my heart, and if other creators
TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS...."The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who'll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you're sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that's almost never the case." - Chuck CloseTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS....2 years ago in Personal More Like This

And in other news...Avatar Destiny Portal has returned after being offline for two months. [*yawn and stretch*] [Woohooooo!] If some of you remember that survey in June...well, all of the results have been translated into this. [:hooray:] I really think we should start introducing daily discussions and debates on topics and theories on both Legend-of-Korra and the new discussion forum. What do you think? [hmm]
Avatar Destiny Portal has finally returned from its massive revamp and it's definitely worth checking out and exploring. [Nod] There are a few empty spaces here and there , but most of the empty spaces are to be filled by fans like yourself with discussion, debates and fan art, fan fic or fan video submissions.
Where Do We Go From Here? Korra's Season 4Warning: It should go without saying, but there will be spoilers for Legend of Korra season three... actually, there will be spoilers for the whole show. You've been warned.Where Do We Go From Here? Korra's Season 41 year ago in Personal More Like This
With season three over and done with... I have to say... damn. Never has an ending been simultaneously so triumphant and uplifting... and so... soulcrushingly depressing.
The villains have been dealt with (for the most part), the Air Nomads have finally bounced back from near extinction, Tenzin decrees that unlike their ancestors the new Air Nomads should actively follow in Avatar Aang's footsteps and help everyone worldwide like they're the kung fu monk equivalent of Amnesty International, Jinora has become officially appointed as a true airbending master (and with her head shaved, has become the spitting image of her grandfather at her age)...
Korra has been emotionally, psychologically and physically tortured. She's devastated, reduced to a shell of her form
Remember December 19th, the day Avatar ended.It has been 2 days since the Avatar series ended and I feel very sad that such a great show has ended. It all started with a boy named aang. Most of us grew up with him since Avatar the last airbender was aired on TV. Our fandom has struggled through a lot together.When Avatar the Last Airbender ended in the 3rd season I was devastated. Remember when we found out about Legend of Korra? We even had a Tenzin/Korra ship that thankfully sunk the moment the first episode of Legend of Korra was released.To be honest I really didn't like Legend of Korra at first as it was not as great as Avatar the Last Airbender in my opinion. However,as time passed I saw Korra grow and develop into a strong independent woman. Furthermore, I was glad to see a female lead with dark skin on a TV show from America for once. Representation matters! From Wan to Yang Chen to Kuruk to Kyoshi to Roku to Aang and finally Korra we have come a long way and learnt so much.

What is your Drawing Skill Level?All of the images featured in this article come from archives of my own work so not to impose unwanted criticism. The intention of this article is not to categorize artists, but to categorize similarities of different skill levels of representational drawing. Please also note that skill level in representational drawing does not equate to the worth of an artist's creative ability. But skill in representational drawing is very important to have in a lot of art disciplines. It is a skill that takes a lifetime to learn. Skill does not come from talent. Instead, talent affects the perseverance, discipline, and desire of the individual to develop skill.What is your Drawing Skill Level?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

To those of you who chose to interpret the ending differently or saw it as ambiguous, the Word of God(s) has come to say "This is what it was, is, and forever shall be."
But I think the majority of us were on the same page with what that final scene meant and how wonderful (and validating to many people's lives) it was. And for us I say: THREE CHEERS!

I’ve taken a lot of heat over the past couple of days for celebrating the ending as being very progressive. A lot of people seemed quite adamant that Korra and Asami were just good friends and there was nothing romantically intentional about the ending at all. Some even going so far to say that my comment about the bi-sexual flag colored mountains was “reading too much into it.”
But y’all can suck it now! Cuz it’s CONFIRMED!
