Legend of Korra Book 2

After we finished up on Book One and before we got layouts for Book Two, us background painters got a chance to do some sketches based on the scripts for Book Two.  These are some of the sketches and things I did. 

This ones an actual background though

frozen sacred forest

updated southern air temple area and sky bison cave

nuktuk set 

spirit world side of the spirit portal.  the scale didn't work for the action

Some creepy dark spirits for episode 10 i didn't think would get used at the time

I'm also going to try to be a little less behind the times and use my tumblr!

I hope you don't find this message too strange. I saw your work on theartofanimation tumblr and the tall image with the cliffs and the little pagoda at the bottom. I just wanted to write a message to let you know how beautiful this is. I recently had to return from travelling through Asia for a year for reasons out of my control and I won't be able to go back. I'm gutted and this picture hit me so hard. It is so beautiful, the colours and light are so evocative it made me ache. For a place I know so well and at the same time will never see. Almost a melancholy sunset. I don't know what the legend of Korra is (sorry!) or anything about art. But this picture is wonderful. It stopped my absent scrolling and nearly made me cry. Thank you for sharing something so beautiful.
