Talk about an awesome fake waterbending punch. >:3
This is the first, quick concept I did of Tahno, the team captain of the Wolf-bats, voiced by the great Rami Malek from HBO’s The Pacific. The character was largely inspired by the ridiculously over the top Japanese kickboxer Kizaemon Saiga, whose ridiculous antics include having his cornermen fix his hair with a mirror between rounds in K-1 matches. Ryu whipped up Tahno’s character design (which I think Korra Nation released) based on this concept, to which I made some minor tweaks, and there you have the character we love to hate.
Interesting to know that he seems to be a water bender. Just shows how blended Republic City actually is. And I like that.
Korra’s face tho…
