Comments for The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series

The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series: 03/29/14

cover artThe Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series by Michael Dante DiMartino is a folio dedicated to the art design of the first season of Kora (Book of Air).

While Korra certainly has excellent characters, including a convincing, interesting, and flawed lead, the series also is one of the best looking currently being produced for American television. (There is certainly some anime out there that rivals or surpasses Korra's.)

The book goes through all the steps of planning and designing Korra. Character design, costume design, city design, vehicle design, storyboarding, and so forth.

I read the book as an egalley from NetGalley. The PDF unfortunately didn't have enough resolution to read most of the tiny captions that accompany the dozens of full color stills and other illustrations. In print, though, this would be an impressive book and should be part of any animation library.

Five stars
