Here is the final press art I did for the upcoming 1-hour finale of The Legend of Korra, which airs on Saturday, June 23. Thanks for all of the kind words and support as I posted some of the in-progress elements along the way. I was sick and exhausted through most of the process, so the positive vibes were more than welcome. Amon’s mask received a minor nose job since I posted that layer last week: he has less of the signature Konietzko schnoz now.
This is so beautiful and awesome and flawless and I can’t wait for the season finale!
NEW CLIP! :)
I’M NOT READY!!! (; A;)
I LOOK FORWARD TO SATURDAY…
BUT I’M NOT READY FOR IT!
Energybending - A Comparison
While the Lionturtle and Aang use the same technique, Amon seems to be using another method.
When Aang takes away Ozai’s bending, and when the Lionturtle teaches Aang energybending, they both thouch TWO points on the body, the yin tang and the ru zhong point aka the Ajna chakra and the Anahata chakra.
When Amon ‘takes away’ LBZ’s bending, he only touches ONE point, the yin tang.
Now what could that mean?
I think Amon is faking it. That he is making people believe that he is taking away their bending, when what he is actually doing is blocking a chakra.
Here is why:
Amon touches the yin tang point aka the Ajna chakra:Location: Midway between the medial ends of the eyebrows Actions& Effects:
- Calms the spirit - insomnia, anxiety, stress.
- Frontal headache.
- Sinus issues - congestion, sinusitis.
When Uncle is teaching Zuko about lightning, he talks about bending needing a certain amount of inner calm. So, if you were to close that chakra and lock all the anxiety inside someone, making them incapable of being calm, that would effectively take someone’s bending away.
Quite clever actually, since the more terrified they are/become the more permanent this block will be. And Amon is sure laying it on thick.

I’d also like to note that he touches the back of his neck too. It’s really split second but he does.
Now if we look here….
yep i’m still sold on this theory yep
There’s a chakra called Amon?
The Legend of Korra - episode 3 - “The Revelation”
Everything is Legend of Korra and nothing hurts. :3
Except if you’re a bender and Amon just unbended you.
They recently did a remodel on the Nickelodeon Animation Studios and installed these snazzy four-high HD displays in the main lobby. They showcase the various Nick shows throughout the day. My friend Rohner Segnitz did a great job designing these awesome digital layouts for Korra and Avatar that frame the episodes. I worked my tail off on the Korra promo poses, and I must confess I love coming into the studio and having a 12-foot-tall Korra and Amon towering over me.
