The Legend of Korra: Book 1 - Air, The Art of the Animated Series is a nice addition to that experience. It's as good as the first art book Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Art of the Animated Series.
The cover art is different from the original product image. It has Korra looking rather too serious.
The book features development art from all the 12 episodes in Book One: Air. There are designs for the main characters, followed by the Republic City and its inhabitants and then we have art from each episode in order.
Character designs form the bulk of the book. There's Korra in different outfits, including those from Pro-bending gear, and also the cute four-year-old Korra. There are lots of line art and also coloured versions for the characters. Other characters are Tenzin and his family, Lin Beifong, Amon, Katara, and about most of the characters that appear in the episodes.
The environment art are beautiful. The buildings and sets have a mix of oriental, industrial and European style. The world has changed since Aang was the Avatar. You'll see some connection to the past, for example, with Avatar Aang Memorial Island. Overall, the world feels very different because it has evolved. My favourite piece is the aerial painting of Air Temple Island that appears towards the end.Read more ›
I was very happy to hear that the Korra artbooks were finally available for digital download. Sadly, it was a major let down. The contents of the book are beautiful, the visuals are stunning, but all of it is useless unless you can actually ZOOM in to see the details of the drawings. And since this version locks the images in place, it makes informational text illegible. For 16 dollars, this is inexcusable. The whole point of the artbook is to see these things, and not being able to zoom/read text makes the artbook a waste of money.
As for the book itself: it is beautiful! It shows various artworks of each character, backgrounds, story boards, and everything a Korra fan could ask for. My favorite is the character expressions sheets. They are so lifelike. If you are a fan of the series, or need inspiration for your own animation career, I definitely recommend buying the physical copy of this book. You won't be sorry.
The artwork is beautiful, and it's awesome reading little anecdotes from the series creators. Did you know that polar bear dogs are feared by the Water Tribes, but Korra met a lost cub when she was little and now she has Naga!? All of the notes add to the universe of the series and make you feel involved in the show. As a fan of the original series, I'm now a little older and can really appreciate the work that goes into entertaining people, so this book is exceptional at presenting that feeling.
The book is separated into a few sections, focusing on early development, each episode of the first season, and extra artwork created for promotion such as the DVD cover. I love being able to look at the concept art and notes and then watch the series at home. I highly recommend grabbing the Blu-ray version of the series. It has audio commentaries for each episode, so you are really being thrown into the universe of The Legend of Korra!
I highly recommend to everyone who is a fan of the series!
This book shows the art progression for the whole first season or Book One of Legend of Korra. So if you haven't finished the first season, be warned that this book contains spoilers.
This book has everything when it comes to artwork. There are small sketches of the initial ideas for characters. There are full spreads of a beautiful landscape or action scene. There are even sone diagrams of the technology. All of the artwork is beautiful. It's all so detailed.
In addition to the art, there is a foreword and comments throughout the book from the creators. There are nice little tidbits describing a characters evolution or inspiration.
This book would be a perfect gift for a fan of the television series. I could just flip through these pages and admire the artwork for hours. I give this book a 5/5.
