I'm a nerd and proud of it. No I don't just like books and learning, or comic book heroes and star trek; I am a multifaceted nerd, one that loves to explore more about the things I connect with. I will nerd about anything. Welcome to my head.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don’t - I have a lot to learn), I’m not sure I could communicate them effectively. I’ve gathered some thoughts and ideas here, though, in case they’re helpful.
First, some general…
"Carn Carby left, and Ender mentally added him to his private list of people who also qualified as human beings."
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
Michael Dante DiMartino:
Sokka began as the sarcastic "everyman" of the show. His character was
pretty simple. He liked the hunt, eat, and annoy his sister. But as soon as we hit upon the idea that all the adult men in the Southern Water
Tribe were off fighting in the war, Sokka became much more real and
interesting. Now his character had a purpose and great responsibility
which was to protect his tribe and his sister from the Fire Nation. But although he was skilled warrior and hunter, he had never really been
tested in battle. I loved the part of creating Sokka's character arc,
taking him from an inexperienced kid who had never left home to a
battle-tested leader who traveled the world.
Artist’s depiction of the Hindu concept of Atman; Aang and Korra’s Cosmic Selves
In Hindu philosophy, Atman refers to the innermost essence of an individual. It lies beneath and guides all the activities of a person just as Brahman, the Absolute All, underlies the workings of the whole universe.
When Aang encounters his Atman, it is during the act of unlocking his Crown Chakra and relinquishing all worldly attachments.
Korra, however, achieves enlightenment when she connects with the cosmic energy of the universe, and in doing so uncovers the fundamental truth of Atman - it is both part of and identical to Brahman. Thus, she is able to project her Atman into the physical plane of existence, having become a master of time and space.
