Winter Amon by TacosaurusRex Winter Amon by TacosaurusRex
[link] HERE GO LOOK AT THIS AMON PICTURE INSTEAD. IT'S 223746287632 TIMES BETTER THAN THIS OLD STINKY ONE




EDIT: Ok, so I get that people really seem to like this picture for some reason, but please check out some of the other stuff in my gallery....
This piece isn't even all that great to me (I hardly spent any time on it too). The anatomy if severely flawed, and the whole thing just looks tacky to me now... So I really would appreciate it if people took the time to look at some of my other works :)

why is it that the piece an artist spends the least amount of time on always seems to get the most amount of attention, while the one's we spend days working on go unnoticed?


just in case you guys didn't already realize..... I REALLY like Amon.

inspired by this week's episode



I'm sorry...
I don't mean to sound stuck up or anything, but I really do hate the fact that THIS is the most popular piece in my gallery :

Not that I have anything against this piece, but you're right. This is no where near your best work. All of your samurai images are better. My favs are your Cowboy Bebop piece and the Trigun image of Vash :D

thank you! here is one of the other Amon pieces I did [link]

To be honest I really dont understand why everyone likes this one soo much when that other piece is far better than this one in every possible way (in my opinion)... oh well.

Pfft that sounds terrible. Koh? Why would he give Amon that power? That sounds much worse than him being a bender.

Anyway, I can't believe Amon is a bloodbender.

Looks sort of like he's bending here. Was that intentional/a guess at how things might turn out?

If so...

Either way, this feels really deep and dramatic. The snow is done well and adds a great touch.

If you think about it, Amon's characteristics are similar to that of an airbender. He is nimble, quick and agile. He dodges attacks during fights and waits to deliver a finishing blow. He seems to be very spiritual advocating the spirits have spoken to him to be the instrument of bending eradication. Where as Korra despite being the Avatar is incapable of airbending at all and as she and her instructors pointed out displays little if any competence in spiritual connections. Korra itches for a fight, Amon rarely fights ironically he is skilled to the point he has won all his fights and probably would have even without help from his Equalists.

When Amon touches someones forehead he touches the "Light Chakra" in order to remove someones bending. The Light Chakra as explained by Guru Pathik deals with insight and is blocked by illusion. Maybe what he does is hypnotize his victims on the subconcious to forget they can bend. I wouldn't be surprised if Amon is who he claims he is. "Amon" the word has many uses. It is the name of the second deadliest pressure point in the human body. Located on the back of the neck, near the base of the brain stem, a precise strike can be fatal, the same way they slaughter cattle with a bolt to the neck. Amon was also the first name of Amon Goeth, a notorious Nazi officer found guilty for murdering thousands of people, sniping countless others from the balcony of his house overlooking the concentration camp he was in charge of. The spelling "Amon" is also used in some transliterations. Amon is an Egyptian name meaning "hidden", which may refer to his covered face. Amon is a well-thought out villain, which seems to be rare these days. He is not megalomaniacal out to destroy the world; he is vengeful, wronged genius who is using his warped, misguided mind to further his plans for the world. He is utterly fearless, as evidenced by his flawless combat technique, dodging every attack that swoops his way and closing in for the 'kill'. Yet his intelligence doesn't seem to generate personal arrogance; being four steps ahead of everyone works perfectly for this guy.

haha! wow you really do your research! I like that. You have a point to! When I first saw him take away someones bending there was no dramatic affects or glowing light or anything like there was when Aang would take someones bending away. Who ever or even whatever he is I don't think he permenetly takes away there bending. He's still a complete BAMF though! :)
