We Shall not Korra her Like Again

Heeeeey you guys!

Did you hear?  

I'm still totally coming down from the excellent ending of Legend of Korra's third season, and here comes this bizarre news that Nickelodeon is going to start showing the fourth season online... not a year from now, not six months from now, but.... on October 3rd?

On one hand, this is great!  We're going to see them so soon!

...on the other hand, this is kinda depressing.  Because i guess it indicates that Nickelodeon is just dumping the show out of the chute.  That they're likely done with this whole Avatarverse as a whole.  That Korra will be over sooner rather than later.  And then there will be no Korra at all.


I don't know about you, but i'm rather picky these days.  There just aren't any other shows like this on the air.  I'm sick of The Simpsons, and Family Guy, and Seth McFarlane's other vile crud, and i'm sick of every other "wacky" cartoon out there no matter how clever they are.  I saw an episode of a show called Rick & Morty recently, and while it was certainly witty, it was just another mean-spirited barrage of pop culture references that was trying way too hard to be Futurama. 

I dunno.  I'm sick of everything being so ephemeral and crass.  I'm yearning for stories that feel like they... actually could exist in some other universe.  Stories with heart and dignity.  Stories that people might actually give a shit about in 50 years.  Which is kind of how i was as a kid -- when i was a kid, i definitely preferred Disney to Warner Brothers cartoons, because... i dunno, they felt more real.  

But anyway!

Apart from that, what else is up?

As usual, i'm busy as all Hell.  In addition to slogging my way through Illustrator and InDesign lessons, i'm trying to finish all these new pics, as well as relentlessly turdpolishing my older stuff.  I've been updating my drawings from 2010, and i cannot believe how good they look now.  I'm just flabbergasted.


Also...'s finally cool out!  And cloudy!

After four interminable months of heat and humidity, it's finally not crushingly hot anymore. 

I like it.

Other than that... 

....i'm a bit confused at why some of my recent drawings have gotten so few views.  Am i doing something wrong here?  It used to be the case that most things i uploaded here would get 1,500+ hits automatically, and sometimes getting up into the 4,000+ range.  Now...

...many of the things i've done lately seem to get a measly 300+ views.  I don't get it.  I get new watchers every day, and i get more main pageviews than ever before.... but nothing i'm doing really seems to catch on like my old stuff.

Umm.  Have i gotten predictable?  

Do i just need to try harder? 


I know popularity ain't everything, but.... wait, yes it is!

Just the other day i dropped in on one of Artgerm's livestreams, the one where he was doing a pic of Darna.  He offhandedly remarked that it was "a small commission, only $500 dollars."  

.....goddamn, that's swank.  

I want to get to that level.  

And i'm not going to do it by getting 300 views on everything.

Must try harder.

Must not fail to succeed.

"That is most of it, being a wizard -- seeing and listening. The rest is technique."
-- Schmendrick the Magician

"When I was alive, I believed -- as you do -- that time was at least as real and solid as myself, and probably more so. I said 'one o'clock' as though I could see it, and 'Monday' as though I could find it on the map; and I let myself be hurried along from minute to minute, day to day, year to year, as though I were actually moving from one place to another. Like everyone else, I lived in a house bricked up with seconds and minutes, weekends and New Year's Days, and I never went outside until I died, because there was no other door. Now I know that I could have walked through the walls."

-- The Skull.

"The first duty in life is to assume a pose. What the second is, no one has yet discovered."
--Oscar Wilde

“Meaning is not in things but in between them."
-- Norman O. Brown

You're never going to find true happiness, what are you gonna do, cry about it?"
-- Weird Al Yankovic

"What's wrong with running away from reality when it sucks?"

"Life IS pain, your highness. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something."

"Comedy is a dying artform. But tragedy? Now THAT'S funny."
-- Bender

"Principal Skinner is an old man who lives at the school. I had to go to his office once because i was dirty."

"The Durions had won the day, but left behind were Bruidd ruins; for the Bruidd had left a Sign, or a Poem, as some would say, and some would not."

"There's no such thing as love. It's just another puffed-up word used by Madison Avenue to sell their skin creams and two-seater cars!"
-- Stewie Griffin.

The Fourth and final Book of The Legend of Korra starts on October 3rd........... 

25 deviants said This is good, but it's almost over, and that makes me have a sad. e__e
12 deviants said YAY. Moar Korra!
8 deviants said I never even saw the third Book.
1 deviant said I hope Amon returns somehow.
No deviants said I don't care. Korra sucks.

Hey man...pardon if I missed it posted somewhere here on your page, but are you currently taking commissions?
Chronorin Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hey... on second thought, what did you have in mind?
Mr-Marcus-81 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, I've been wanting to see someone else take on my OC Techna/Jetta and do her justice, i.e. someone who draws attractive plus sized women well.  You did a great job with her years ago Jetta by Chronorin and I'd like to see her in her current look The Cyberologist by Mr-Marcus-81 Cyber Punk by Mr-Marcus-81  I understand if you're too busy right worries. 
Chronorin Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I can do that.  Just give me any details on pose, background, etc.  I really like her cyber look in the one on the left.

Ooof, not at the moment, sir.  Got way too much to do, sadly.
