I love height charts. Update to this post.
With the release of reference art from the Spirit of an Episode shorts/interviews on Amazon (a big thanks to yesile for posting these), a more accurate and newer height chart can be made! So of course I did.
However this causes some discrepancies to pop up between the on-screen references and some of the official art released (the ‘New Friends' poster specifically). In this compare, I scaled the reference art so Korra stands at 5'7” and since everyone was already lined up in comparison to her, I could line them up easily.
P’li: This moves P’Li’s height down one inch from 6’8” to 6’7”. However, an inch difference is fairly negligible and keeping her at 6’8” officially causes no issues visually.
Gazhan: Loses an inch from my other compare, but that was a rough guestimate anyway and based on his size compared to Zaheer.
Zaheer: Not pictured, but based on his size compared to both P’Li and Gazhan, Zaheer is in the 6’0” to 6’1” range, which is where I put him in the previous chart.
Mako: Mako is one of the two bigger changes. Bryke has put him at 6’2”, and the New Friends poster certainly has him scale in right there if Korra is 5’7”. However the reference chart above that compares him, Gazahn, and Korra to P’Li, has Mako coming in at 6’0”.
Tenzin: The largest change. The New Friends poster scaled Tenzin in at a whopping 6’7” when compared to Korra’s 5’7”. However, in this reference line up, Tenzin scales in at a little over 6’2”. Potentially 6’3” if his figure was moved slightly higher so his feet fell more on the ‘horizon’ line. However, the impression of the New Airbenders Line Up is that this is supposed to be their general heights when compared to each other and drawn in a group.
Bolin and Asami: With Mako and Tenzin’s heights on the New Friends poster now in question, actual heights for Bolin and Asami are more difficult to guess at. We do know that both of them are taller than Korra by several inches just from seeing them in action in episodes, but until we get a reference line up like the above for them where we can see a line for “Korra’s height”, a more accurate height is not currently possible.
NOT a spoiler-free blog.

This is why i think Avatar should be R rated
Modern teenage Kainora leaning against the air because I’m so legit get on my level
Don’t worry, buddy. I’ve got you.
Can we PLEASE get a flashback?

avatar sorting hat: asami sato
hufflepuff: loyalty, hard work, modesty, dedication, trust, & acceptance
What if..? xD I don’t even know what to say about it…
maybe I’ll do more of this :P
I was doing a much darker Korra fan art, but it was taking a long time, so instead i did a slightly different take on Baby Korra!
Hope you all enjoy!
No but seriously, this is not the same girl we saw in season one.
Korra was arrogant, loud, always willing to fight. She was proud to be the Avatar and she wanted everyone to know it. In this first picture we see her testing the Triple Threat Triad. She knows she’s going to win. She always believed she was going to win because well, she’s the mutha freaking Avatar!
But then we have the shot from this last episode. She’s humbled, quiet, tired of fighting. She feels like she’d failed in some way. Here is the birth of a new generation of air nomads willing to take on the responsibilities of bringing the world balance and peace while she recovers yet she looks so broken. Why? Because that’s her job. I think Korra’s biggest character development is her realizing what being the Avatar is all about.
It’s as if her attitude went from, “Fuck yeah I’m the Avatar!” to “Fuck. Yeah, I’m the Avatar.”
We’ve seen this girl grow from an arrogant bender to a humbled Avatar. If you think Korra is the same as she was in season one, you need to reevaluate your life.
