Since its debut in 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender has remained one of Nickelodeon's most talked about and highest-rated animated series to date, and it's not too hard to see why . . . Not only does it offer an epic storyline, engaging characters, action, adventure, and a powerful message about the importance of hope in a world long-besieged by war, all the while serving up top-notch entertainment. It's also beautifully executed, a stunning masterpiece of animated storytelling that harmonizes Western influences with aesthetic inspiration drawn from a diverse array of cultures, including those of China, Japan, India, and the Inuit.
An unprecedented look at the concept, design, and production art behind this smash-hit series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Art of the Animated Series chronicles the show's developmentfrom the very first sketch through to the series finale and beyond!along with behind-the-scenes commentary from series creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino.
Featuring hundreds of images, most of which Nickelodeon has never released to the public!
I absolutely love artbooks and I'm hella excited about this one because I wanted to have a ATLA artbook like that for years! I was also fearing that because of that stupid movie all the new stuff would be about the movie-verse (like the mangas) instead of the original stuff. But I am soooo happy right now!!
Just for the heck of it XD
