The Legend of Korra, Book 3: Change brand new FULL trailer for the second half of Book 3.
u ready 4 dis??
tada! the commission of Wanda Maximoff aka the Scarlet Witch done for me by korraquality! (Her commissions page is here) She specializes in designing costumes for characters that approach real historical fashions. When I told her I wanted to see Wanda in something that a Roma woman from south-eastern Europe might wear (with a headband or scarf as a nod to Wanda’s headpiece), she was really excited! We worked out this costume, an amalgam of traditional South Slavic and Roma styles, to match up with my idea of the fictional country Transia, where Wanda and Pietro were raised. It was very important to me that the design not be over sexualized or fetishized, like I felt that some of Wanda’s costumes have been. korraquality more than understood and I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you again!
So welcome! I had so much fun painting this :)
GUYS I DID IT i made a page of ALL THE FANART I’VE DONE SINCE MAKING KORRAQUALITY! visit it here here here! look at the improvement! yay!
Do you have an art tag/tab thing for all of your artwork?
i always have, but i never knew how make one. i guess now’s as good a time as any to google it and make a tab! i’ll let you know when it’s finished :)
The one thing I’m really proud of for the Avatar series is how far the animation has gone from
book 1 of A:TLA in 2005
to book 3 of TLOK in 2014
and I just god it’s so beautiful and THE SCENERY FOR TLOK IS MADE BY SOME RANDOM HIGH SCHOOLERS BRYKE FOUND ON DEVIANTART LIKE DO YOU UNDERSTAND
azula is the raddest and baddest, always always always. this lighting was mad difficult to work with, though—it’s so subtle on the face that i feel like some of the features are lost. ah, well.
want a piece like this for your very own, of whomever you want? check out my commissions page! xoxoxo
FUCK I JUST REALIZED I FORGOT TO WATCH KORRA
I WAS HOME TONIGHT
I COULDA WATCHED IT
I want to consider LoK’s ratings for a second, because I think there are some interesting trends to note.
First, Book 1 had a steady schedule, and the ratings reacted accordingly… except for a single hiccup with When Extremes Meet. Interestingly enough, the adult group reacted more negatively than the kid/teenager group did, in stark contrast with the Book 2 trends.
My guess is, the majority of Book 1’s viewer base came from kids looking for something to watch on Saturday mornings. The show got awesome ratings because it was high quality enough to draw a good chunk of those kids, but the kids weren’t deciding when to watch tv based on when the show aired — they were already there to be mined.
In contrast, the adults tuned out when they thought the show had gone on hiatus. That suggests they were scheduling time around the show, but didn’t have the information about its airing. The 600k that caught the show are probably our internet-connected crowd.
For Book 2, the entire non-internet connected adult crowd disappeared. I doubt this was a quality issue; it’s more likely that they didn’t know the show was on. And, for the ones who did know it was on, they were given a very easy way to avoid the lousy air time when Nick put the episodes up at midnight. I bet that influenced the premiere -> third episode drop off — outside of super fans, adults are probably inclined to do stuff on Friday nights.
The kid demo, of course, was all over the place. Kids can’t schedule around shows and don’t have the information to do so, even if they watch the network enough to know the show’s airing again. I’d suggest that the ratings for Peacekeepers suggests a group of around 700k who are connected enough to keep up with the show (which is, not coincidentally, only a bit lower than the general Book 3 kid ratings).
By Book 3, the adult demo stabilized almost entirely. That 400k that the show scored week after week is probably our fanbase and its periphery.
The kids were less stable, but not nearly as volatile as in Book 2. Very few people who weren’t connected even knew about the show.
It’s relevant to point out here that the “kids” group includes 12-17 year olds who Nick probably doesn’t see as their network audience… and given the connectivity issue, I bet they’re a significant chunk of the remainder nowadays. It’s entirely possible that the only actual children who watched Book 3 were relatives and friends of fans.
This is not the portrait of a show in legitimate decline due to audience alienation. This is the portrait of a show that’s been robbed of its greatest source of viewers by the network and rendered impossible to follow by anyone who hasn’t chosen to seek out out.
we’re not gonna talk about how a show with a woc lead in an asian-influenced world is getting stomped over for a show about a talking sponge?
What gives you the right to decide if someone is overreacting? Is making joking posts about how much you hate nickelodeon overreacting? Is voicing your frustration that your favorite show that is not only enjoyable but culturally influential is going off of television an overreaction? Because I don’t understand why people aren’t allowed to be angry about this. Sure we all watch online already, but we don’t only care about the tumblr fandom, but everyone else. I want new people to watch and fall in love with LOK. I want kids to discover this show and want to be just like Korra and save the world. I want little poc girls to see Korra and see themselves in media for a change. And now that its online, a huge part of the potential viewership is gone.
It’s fine to look on the bright side, because yeah, the show wasn’t cancelled. But don’t try to minimize the loss of LOK from being on TV.
NickandMore: Nickelodeon has pulled the last 5 scheduled new airings of “Legend of Korra” for Book 3. Episode 8 will air this Friday the 25th at 8pm, but then there are no further scheduled new airings. No word yet on when the episodes will air (x)
Bryke: KORRA NO CANCELLED. MOVING TO DIGITAL. WE’LL TALK AT SDCC. THANKS FOR CARING (X)
ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS
