The Legend of Korra Background Paintings


Last fall I was privileged enough to do some background paintings for The Legend of Korra TV show on Nickelodeon. They were very busy, and thus hired me and a few other people on temporarily to help out for a few episodes. I painted these over pre-existing layouts done by a different artist. 

I have to say, I have never had more fun doing a paid job and I am extremely proud to have been even a small part of such a great show! 















For this last one,  I only painted in the lighting, weather, and snow. Things like the Aang statue, buildings, and all the ground planes were already painted before I got the piece,  just with a different season and time of day.
