Guys

Something inside me died today. No spoilers. But I watched the season 3 Korra Finale and it was...gut wrenching and so heartbreaking in the end. Never ever had a show so much impact on me. I love it so much and I hate it that the amount of episodes (both Korra and Aang series) are so limited. I want to get to know more of the universe!

I also got all the comics they wrote and GAWD I am so obsessed with this show. It touches something deep inside me, the characters are so great it's hard to believe it isn't real. Also the animation of the elemnts is so beautiful and it always leaves me longing for a world where bending would actually be possible :saddummy:

And DARN that final battle at the end..That was so beautifully executed!

Norey! I didn't know you were an Avatar fan. :D

I know the finale killed me too. I still have random urges to start tearbending... This piece is so beautiful! My favorite part? Gahh so hard to decide! I think the rocks. Yes the rocks maybe. I'm always impressed by others' abilities to draw rocks and earthbending because I just can't do it. xD  Her pose is also really really good. I'm so used to you drawing cats and dragons and such that it's awesome to see you've got serious skills drawing people too. :)

Omg tearbending, something I've been a master of in years :cry:
Thanks so much for the amazing comment!! I will try to draw more people since it frustrates me if I want to draw a scene of a human character I love but am not able to, so I have to practice more :'O

The last episode was so good and yet so painful. It was kind of depressing to see Korra like that :(

I was so invested that I couldn't even stop and appreciate the spectacularity of the climax till I watched it the second time,
the first time I really was just panicking for Korra to get to safety!

Ahhhh I still can't get over how emotionally draining the final was...I think I first have to let the wounds heal before I dare rewatching it ;_;

In other climaxes the avatar stops the bad guys,
in this one, the avatar was just lucky to get out alive

and the ending lets you feel that

I know right, after I saw this episode, I was walking around wanting to bend everything I saw!

This is a great artwork. I really like the composition and how you show varying distances of the rocks, like the in-your-face ones around Korra and the less distinct ones back by Zaheer.

Oh man I started watching this show this summer ... it's so amazing. I love how it's based off of Chinese culture in a way that doesn't make it look silly, that's something I notice since I live in China...
This is a really beautiful painting, the texture of the water and the fire and her hair are all really good. c: <3

dude, i just finished watching this, and i wasn't expecting much from it, compared to the last few seasons, but that was a lot better than i expected. the battle at the end was so good though. the music and animation were really good, and how it was executed was really really really nice. 
and that ending, oh god. i was so happy for Jinora and everyone but the last part, the final few seconds before the credits, that ruined me, oh man. none the less, it was the best season finale for LOK so far.

I didn't find the last 2 seasons too bad...I mean the 1st ended with a dramatic suicide, the second ended with an epic fight and her being disconnecteed from all Avatars...it was really hard stuff to take in

But this.

I still don't know how to deal with it.. When taht single fucking tear ran down her face.. Gawd.It broke me somehow

exoticcheese Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ah yeah, good point. i think the finale for season one felt a little rushed for me, maybe? the second was pretty cool, i have to admit, haha. they were both good endings though, but this season's takes the cake for the best, for me personally.

oooh my god, i know. the ending was so heart wrenching, oh man. i think my favorite part during both episodes though, was when she was captured and they were trying to force her into the avatar state, and she started seeing all of the past villains she fought, like she knew she defeated them and everything, but she's still terrified of all of those past events. i love when you have a tough and confident character show weakness, haha.

:iconnoreydragon:
NoreyDragon Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014  Student Digital Artist
AHh that was so so gutwrenching, indeed.. And then her fighting against the avatar state, then entering it anyways and just DESTROYING the whole thing, it was amazing!!

It was so awesome to see Zaheer fly as well. The ancient airbender technique that no one had mastered in thousands of years - I loved that concept, I hope there will be more of it next season! I mean we got bloodbending, metalbending, lavabending, flying, lightning bending, what will come next? It's so great

exoticcheese Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oh man, that killed me,. the whole time i was hoping she'd repress it, but NO SHE DIDN'T BUT SHE STILL KICKED BUTT ANYWAY.

dude, that was sick. the entire fight sequence was beautifully animated, i was admiring it the entire time. literally talking to my younger bro while watching it like "dang, look at this animation, are you seeing this?!?" awe yeah, i thought that was a cool trick as well, maybe Korra can master it later or something, hehe. god, i hope there's more secret tricks to bending, that'd be so neat.

I really want to do an animation of Avatar (Korra?) soon but it takes so much time hnnggg

oh man, i love seeing all the gifs people are making of the final episodes, they look so nice and the animation looks so good in gif form for some reason, i'm not sure why, haha.
awe dude, i know D: but if you put a lot into it, it's worth it once it finished.

If only the world of Avatar were real... I HEAR YOU BRO

The ending was so tragic... WHAT WILL KORRA DO GUYS SERIOUSLY. But I was happy for Jinora :3 
ARGHG The characters are just awesome!

Jinora is so cool! I love how much she looked like Aang in the end

But damn yes...what will happen to the show if the most badass and strong character in its history is broken and sick..GAWD I CAN'T DEAL WITH IT

Yeah! If she grows her hair out I wouldn't be surprised, though :3

I KNOW. Korra just wasn't capable of dealing with all that... Like they said, she's physically strong, but not spiritually and mentally. At least, not as much. UGUGBH Who knew Nickelodeon could be so tragic ;-;

Yes I'm excited what it will be like with her having her tattoos all the time.

It is definitely not a childrens show anymore...all the deaths, the emotional scars, it affects me so much - personally- since I can identify with Korra so well and (I dunno if you care) but I am getting a brain surgery in 2 weeks and I am so afraid I wil be partly paralyzed after that and seeing Korra in the chair struck some notes in me -it won't let me go

You can definitely say it's not limited to kids anymore. But I guess that's the success of it, really.

Wow, really? I can't imagine what you must be thinking. I'm sure it's very unlikely you'll be paralysed though, so I wouldn't worry too much - if at all! I hope the very best goes for you :3
