The Legend of Korra

SDCC 2016 Character Reveals Day 5: Zanobius

It’s the last day of SDCC 2016  and we are revealing the final portrait of a character in the upcoming Rebel Genius by Michael Dante DiMartino, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Legend of Korra.

In twelve-year-old Giacomo’s Renaissance-inspired world, art is powerful, dangerous, and outlawed. A few artists possess Geniuses, birdlike creatures that are the living embodiment of an artist’s creative spirit. Those caught with one face a punishment akin to death, so when Giacomo discovers he has a Genius, he knows he’s in serious trouble.

Luckily, he finds safety in a secret studio where young artists and their Geniuses train in sacred geometry to channel their creative energies as weapons. But when a murderous artist goes after the three Sacred Tools–objects that would allow him to destroy the world and everyone in his path—Giacomo and his friends must risk their lives to stop him.

The past few days were a blur. There had been a fight, Zanobius vaguely recalled. But the memory of what had happened was gone. 

This wasn’t the first time he’d awakened in a new place with few clues to how he’d gotten there or what time of day it was. He felt like a rowboat caught in a squall, tossed up and down as he fought to find the shore. He’d come to dread the blackouts.

A dark gray cloak covered his arms and legs and a hood hung low over his eyes. “A precaution,” he faintly remembered his master telling him. “It’s better if they don’t know who you are.” But whether that conversation happened a few minutes ago or a few hours ago, he couldn’t be sure.

Wool fibers scratched his neck, his back, his arms. He wanted to tear off the cloak and let his skin breathe. Who cared if people saw what he was? Was his master ashamed of him?

Long ago, the parties lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the republicans attacked.

Only the president, master of all the parties, could stop them. But when the country needed him most, his term ended.

Four years passed and Obama and I discovered a new candidate, a democratic socialist named Bernie.

And although his political skills are great, he has a lot of polls to win before he can save anyone.

But I believe Bernie Sanders can save America.

Attention all digital artists!

Krita, an actual FREE digital art program, recently released an Alpha 3.0 version that features tools for creating “hand-drawn animations”.

If you’re looking for an art program with more advanced tools than Paint Tool Sai but don’t want to cough up the cash, then Krita is your program. (However donations to support the people making the program are very much appreciated!)

I understand that when you first download it, the layout and tools can be a little intimidating, but don’t worry. The program comes with a manual and there are tutorials on Youtube that can help you understand the basics.

Even if you don’t want to download this program or donate, please reblog to help spread the word and tag people you think might enjoy this.

Edit: Also, there are different brush packs you can download here. And if you don’t like this program there is also MediBang Paint.

Also, the 3.0 version is out now.
