Once again, I'm blown away (no pun intended) by the production value of not just the animation but also the art and direction. All the Avatar companion artbooks have been fabulous, from the original series with Aang, to Book 1 and Book 2 of Korra.

The presentation of this artbook is similar to the earlier two books with the artworks still arranged in chronological order.

The book's filled with lots of character designs, just like the animation is populated with people. There are the main characters, the villains especially and the plenty of town people. Occasionally there are the Studio Ghibli inspired spirits and other creature designs.

There are quite a few storyboard sequences included. Some are the comedic scenes while most of them are action fight scenes. You may have seen some animated line art sequence of Korra online, well, one of them is in the book showing Korra doing a whirlwind kick. The art is amazing in simplicity and clarity. I just love the anime style art.

Also included are the many beautiful environment paintings and layout sketches.

The Avatar world is rich in detail and stories and once again the creators Bryan Konietzko, Michael Dante DiMartino and director Joaquim Dos Santos have provided insightful commentary that delve more into the characters and interesting story arcs.

This is a fantastic artbook. Highly recommended to fans who can't get enough of the animation.

If you are a fan of Korra, the Avatar series or animation in general, you really owe it to yourself to own this book. It is just amazing to see how many little details were added into each and every episode of the beloved series, something that is sorely missing from American animated shows. A bonafied visual treat.

Wow, this book really shows all the paintings, storyboards, sketches, and ideas that went into creating this wonderful season. I have to say that book three of Korra was my favorite, between the horribly terrific villains, the new found air benders, a few very dramatic sad scenes, and also scenes that make you tear up with joy.... this book does all of it justice. It also ties in a few connection with Avatar, such as a few specific spots in Ba Sing Se that Iroh stayed in during his refugee days now being the home to Bolin and Mako's grandmother. You get to see who Ryu is designed after.... there is just soo much in this book. I cannot wait for the next one!!

Amazing book! This book as with the other like it are all just art books. They have amazing illustrations and panels of the way they animated the series. There is also a lot of developer notes and little thing I found cool. The book is a nice buy and it's maid to last. I will enjoy looking at it in the years to come.

Disclaimer: I posted five stars based on the book's contents rather than the product's condition.

Book Three: Change was my favorite season of Korra personally, so I'm really glad to have this book. Even though it hurts my wallet, I'm happy that each season of Korra has its own book so the show's art has maximum exposure and we can go in-depth into each episode of the series.

Like the other Art of Korra books, this one contains lots of background and environment paintings and plenty of character, outfit, object, and vehicle designs. There are also storyboards and key animation scattered throughout which are my favorite part! Each episode gets its own mini chapter with the art and design used in each episode and there is also the usual "Ancillary Art" section with extra doodles, promotional art, and other fun stuff. And of course, the book starts off with brief introductions from the season's three key figures: Mike, Bryan, and Joaqium.

Unfortunately for my copy, it looks like something heavy ended up on the lower left corner of the book, bending it slightly backwards so that the front cover is ripping off a little bit (I can see the binding) and the inner pages near the binding are also bent. I don't think it's damaged enough to cause the book to fall apart anytime soon, so rather than pay shipping to get it replaced, I just superglued the ripped parts down. It IS a book after all and the other 99% of each page is undamaged so why end up wasting the book? \ O~O / I did buy the book "New," though, so that was disappointing.

All in all I'd definitely go for this book on Amazon unless you want a pristine, brand spanking new copy, then I might check elsewhere but prepare to pay about $10 more.

This was the best show I've ever worked on and I love having this artbook collecting some of the artworks generated to create what is probably my favorite season of the show. Granted, you should take my praise with a grain of salt since I worked on the show.

Dear Korra,

I'm In love with you. Don't you see? You have bent all four elements into a love that I can not ignore. Thine heart aches for such an audacious woman! You can bend all of my elements any day.

Always awesome to get art books on my favorite series. Not as much Korra herself in this one, but a -ton- of stuff for things like the spirits and scene breakdowns. Great buy.
