Lemons by Anodesu Lemons by Anodesu
Tenzin does not want your damn lemons!

I watched the first two leaked episodes of Legend of Korra, and I must say, I am beyond excited about this series! All of the characters are well developed, the universe has grown into a fantastic 1920's dieselpunk setting, and the characters are all beyond lovable. There has yet to be one I've found annoying. I had to draw things, and this came out of a pile of sketches I did last night.

If anyone does not get the joke here, Tenzin, son of Aang, is voiced by the wonderful J.K. Simmons, most notable for his roles as J. Jonah Jameson in Spiderman and Cave Johnson in Portal 2. When I found out, I shat a brick. He sounds nothing like he usually does.

For those of you who haven't touched Portal 2 yet... The quote is from Portal.

I'm going to finish this shiznit up and make a wallpaper, probably. Needs more polish!
KORRA BANDWAGON AHOY!

Oh, holy crap. So glad somebody did this.

Combustible lemons actually sound to me like they would be something that the characters in the Avatar universe would use, as absurd as it sounds.

Honestly I should just repaint the damn thing. I feel bad that it's one of my most popular pieces and I made it in less than an hour. At the very least I should give you guys something that looks a bit more decent for the sake of its popularity.

... give me a bit.

Awww, you don't have to feel obligated to do that just to please the rest of us. Sweating a little... If you really want to though, I completely understand.

Seeing the picture, I instantly connected the two voices. They certainly do feel like they're voiced by the same person, now that you mention it.

Probably so. I remember reading up memes for The Legend Of Korra on TV Tropes, and there was one called "Tenzin doesn't want your damn lemons!" Your picture here reminded me of that.

Yes he did!
I often feel like voice actors are, like, a hidden jem to the cast of shows. They don't seem to get the kind of recognition as Red Carpet stars, yet the fan base they have is really strong.
But he's so great, though! I'm glad to know others think so, too :)

It's a documentary about voice actors. They have everyone from Tara Strong to June Foray. Blew my mind.

Andrea Romano is in this :D I want to see this now so bad, thanks so much for sharing this with me!
Tara's so pretty but she wears so much make-up, though ): But she's still amazing.

I voice actor I've also recently fell in love with is Mako Iwamatsu who did Maku in Samurai Jack and Uncle Iroh in Avatar: The Last Airbender. He's passed away but I love his characters.

yeah Andrea Romano is a big deal. Actually, I think she became a voice coordinator for a pile of shows including Teen Titans. She was bloody brilliant.

And yes, Mako Iwamatsu was a bloody amazing actor in general. I will miss him dearly. (you might find a piece of art in my gallery in honour of his passing XD; )

I personally like her, along with all her annoyingly headstrong tendencies, but Tenzin, Bolin and Lin Bei Fong are the ones currently winning my heart over.

I just think that Korra is over powered and quite arrogant. Meh, I guess she's okay in the next episodes, but her introduction killed my like of her character very quickly. *shrugs*

Anodesu Featured By Owner May 24, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Lol, well there have been arrogant avatars before her. In a sense, she is the opposite of what Aang was. She was talented with 3 forms of bending from a young age, but is not spiritual at all. The whole being the avatar thing definitely went to her head, as she was treated super special from a young age, but on the other hand, she has never really had friends before, and is used to doing what she wants and being praised for how talented she is in other forms of bending. Now she's starting to grasp the true responsibilities of the avatar and trying to live up to a name she has never actually dealt with before.

I guess I can kind of relate to her because I was in the gifted class. In elementary school, you could get away with doing whatever, even if you failed. It's not what the real world is like, but in most cases, you learn the hard way. So there are times where I'm like 'korra. No. you're being a dumbshit.' and she's clearly at fault, but that's fine. Better than her being a sparklepants mary sue who solves all the problems, right?

It's also nice seeing her get rejected by the dream boy.

I too have had a somewhat easy lifestyle, and my talents are slightly above the average Joe in school, but.... I can't stand it when people let things go to their heads. aTo me, it makes them unlikable.

(And yes, I laughed at Korra when she got rejected; I thought she deserved to be knocked down a few pegs.)

I feel there is a difference between 'slightly above average in school' and 'being the avatar' especially in terms of how you are treated and your responsibilities. I still don't see Korra as overly obnoxious. She is stubborn and headstrong, and yes, a bit stupid and annoying at times. Most of her life has been spent mastering the elements and she's been guarded all her life. She's also used to things coming easy to her, as she only was trained in her strengths, and now her weaknesses are the main issue, and she can't master them. It gets under her skin that she has to actually struggle with something. This is a completely different animal. It's not that it goes to her head, it's that she's not used to failure or struggle. Failing for the first time is a tough thing.

I'll admit, she does brag, like when she first meets Mako and Bolin and explains she is more than one type of bender, but I'm sure a lot of it comes from the fact that she's never had friends before. All she's known is her family, her trainers, and the White Lotus guards. But you know what? Mako and Bolin have at least made sure to tell her when she's being a shit. Mako was the first to treat her like crap for instance, and threatened to end their friendship when she questioned his girlfriend's father's ties.

She doesn't understand the real world as she had never really left the water tribe before. In a sense, that honestly makes her quite socially awkward. In episode one, she went around looking for food without money, showing she had never dealt with the real world before. She's never had that experience, unlike you or me. She is someone who has been isolated for training. Suddenly, the world is expecting all these things of her and she's doing questionable stuff, such as the strike teams, as she doesn't know better. She's a moron, and assumed things would be just as easy out there as in her home village.

Okay, this became an essay. Sorry about that. I enjoy these kinds of debates XD;

Hey, I do too. ^__^

Yeah, I see your point, I just don't like it when people think they are infallible or invincible, because I know for a FACT, that the world hates everyone in it, most especially the one considering it. Someone could live 20 years without any kind of problem, and then, BAM! Your life is ruined, and those 20 years mean nothing anymore. I just thought Korra needed a reality check, and she's getting that quite good.

the best part about this show is the character growth. Korra started to realize she isn't as amazing as she thought. Episode 4 was a huge eye-opener for her. Of course, there's also the expectations of the community, so she makes herself believe she is tougher stuff than she actually is. She'll become more humbled, I think, but it's her headstrong attitude that's gotten her into the situations that make these episodes so awesome.

It's fine if you dislike her, but just give her some time to grow. That's the best part of a character. And I mean, there's a difference between her being an annoying character and a poorly designed character, right?
