Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book Two: Spirits

Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book Two - Bryan Konietzko, Michael Dante DiMartino

There is so much background and landscape art in the LOK art books, which is probably my favorite thing about them. The artists have such a great grasp of color and lighting, and it really shines through in their landscape panels. Just beautiful.

The other thing that is so fascinating about these books, to me, is getting to see all the minuscule details that are so important and/or pretty, but all too often go unnoticed in the show. I also love re-watching the shows after reading the Art books and noting all the things I had missed before.

My one complaint is that I actually wish there was a little more text than there is in this series. It's about 2% text and info, which could probably be upped to at least 5%. I applaud them for making the book mostly about the art, but I like to read about some of the inspiration, inside stories, and making of.

The spirits were so whimsical and cute, when they weren't dark and creepy beyond all belief. I especially love the radish and grumpy carrot spirits!

**Yes, this is almost exactly the same review for this volume as for The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book Three: Change, as I had virtually the same thoughts about both of them.**
