.-`~ 'He Took My Face.' ~`-. by Faustisse .-`~ 'He Took My Face.' ~`-. by Faustisse
Apparently, I like to draw LOK fanart every week...


I'll give you a guess who the frightened, bloody boy is, and what's about to happen. B)

I really want to just draw this whole series of what Amon has been through since his alleged 'drastic change in life' (which, by the way, I think is malarkey).

Buuuut we'll see.

Also, am I the only one who spazzed the fuck out when Amon pulled a ninja and just appeared out of nowhere in the abandoned cottage? I mean, seriously. He just planted his middle finger on Tarlokk's forehead, and took away his bending in less than three seconds, while everyone else got knocked unconcious by the bloodbending-party.

And when Korra and Amon had that little moment out in the snow... [link] Seriously, guys. Seriously.

Anyway, have some 'fire-jerk-bending-amon's-face-is-like-:noes:'.

Agreed. While the Noatok/Noatak/whatever story was heart-warming, it was... disappointing; I mean, I expected a revolutionary, not a bender with a psychological problem.

me to and before Amon true identy was exposed he reminded me of a twisted version of a chracter from this animated Manga show.

Noatak. It's actually a river in Alaska. And a 6.6 million acre national reserve.

We'll know for sure if what he says is true when he takes off his mask.

I just love how the show and the writers are handling him; like he, beside Tenzin and Lin, is the only one keeping calm while everyone else is just acting all sorts of crazy.

Exactly (:

I think what makes him rather scary is the fact that he is so calm in every situation. I can't wait till the season finale now :0

It does give him a creepy/eery atmosphere, when you're going up against all these benders and you're just slipping through it like they weren't bending at all.

There's another episode this saturday, though! I'm dying to know what it's about, and then next week's season finale... fffff- it's so far away!!

Yeah, he's like a ninja xD so smooth at passing by the benders, but what do you think he is? if the blood bending doesnt effect him, do you think he could have been blood bending his own blood so that Tarlock wouldnt effect him? but then it takes away the fact that he doesnt bend. I also get the feeling he could be just blocking a chakra instead of fully taking away a person's bending, but its all just guesses really.

Yeah I can't wait for this week xD I'm glad the finale is an hour long though

I, honestly, think he's just an entire new character. How he deals with bending combat-wise, just by dodging the moves head on as well as actually moving around them like an actual bender, I believe he has an advanced knowledge of the arts; probably from studying it meticulously most of his life, or having a huge quarry of self-experience.

Just by him being a chi-blocker himself, I'm going to go with the more relatable fact that he's permanently(?) blocking off chakra pathways. I mean, when Aang was studying under Guru Pathik, he, at the time, couldn't bend fire because his pathway was blocked off. Going by the theory that Amon studied the combat of Bending to the point that if he was one, he'd be a master, I'm going to make it go hand-in-hand that he also spent a large amount of his life studying the art of Chi-Blocking. I believe it was just for the fact that as a nonbender, he could defend and be a formidable foe against benders, but then he discovered an ancient chi-blocking technique that permanently blocks pathways (I remember reading from Bryan and Mike that Chi-Blockers were just as ancient the White Lotus, so the fact there maybe an ancient technique is not unfathomable).

I am, too! There's no way you can just smash together such a beautiful ending to a great season in 30 minutes. I want to know what's going to happeeeeeennn!!

Aha I totally agree with that, it makes more sense that way instead of him just magically taking away bending forever. So if this is true that somewhat means some people could find a way to unblock the chakra if they got blocked by him, if that is its not like completely permanent. But I think this is more of a logical idea about Amon.

I know right??? I really wanna see old man Zuko too xD I wonder if he ended up chubby like Iroh xD

There could be a way to reverse the damage done to the pathways, but if there is, than I'm betting Amon knows, and if he does, I highly doubt he's going to give away how to do it. He is a die-hard believer of his own views, after all.

Yeaaah! Where the hell is ZuZu!? And I want to see his daughter! And also, I want to know if Aang's son Bumi really DID marry Zuko's daughter!! I wanna know noooooooowww. And if Zuko really did let himself go, I'm going to laugh all the way till the episode's over.

First: My goodness this is EPIC!
Second: Eeee! I saw that thought OHMAGOSH but then Amon couldn't be totally bloodbended.... he's a WATERBENDER! Think about it: Two people I've ever seen ever have resisted Bloodbending: A more powerful Waterbender and the Avatar. (Katara and Aang) Either that or... he's a ROBOT! D:

Oh my god, this looks fantastic! And loving your use of colours and tone!

Man, Amon gets creepier and creepier as the episodes go on. Now I am just plain scared of him ( even if he did take away Jerklok's bending )

Thank you!! I've still got a long way to go, but I appreciate the feedback and compliments so much! :heart: :heart:

Amon's growing on me so much, I't's just ffff-... he's so charismatic and charming I just i don't know what to do with myself asdkjhdsadfasdfggfs

And I flipped so much shit when he did that. Tarlokk got what he deserved (SO BADLY), but I felt like he could've been used for a lot more villanous purposes.

Still, I loved the episode, and everything about it. @_@

I could just feel all the feels!

I applaud Amon for taking away Tarrlok's bending, but now that he that I know he can resist bloodbending, Amon is somehow able to freak me out and love him at the same time.

I say, best antagonist so far ><b

i'm more concerned by the fact that he could resist blood-bending.. i mean, in the flashbacks Aang could only do that by going in Avatar State

I think it's because of willpower, hardened absolution, and pain tolerance. Amon is absolutely fearless to all benders, and he's not going to allow some petty blood-bending to slow him down. He's just an unstoppable force in the face of his enemies.

Nice work. But I don't think it malarkey at all. Amon is a terrorist, not a politician. Terrorists are generally...sincere in their beliefs even in real life. Prime example: the most infamous terrorist of all time, Osama bin Laden. If he gave up the comfortable life of the son of a wealthy oil tycoon to live out the rest of his life in hiding, then I think he really considered his "holy war" real. Amon really sees himself as the "solution to the 'inequality' in the city."

I agree with the latter of your idea, that Amon truly believes he is the "solution to the 'inequality' in the city (even the entire world)", but, for me, I'm just not buying it.

It's moreso from the hardened rule "pics or it didn't happen". I'm not seeing any burns; I don't see burns when they focus on his eyes, if he was burned why just the face, why not his entire body, since the fire-bender was ruthless enough to kill his family... there's just a lot of empty holes in his story.

But that's just my idea, I'm not saying I'm right, I'm just saying it's what I think of his whole 'behind-the-mask' story.

The Firebender's position is very creepy! :nod: Though I would have downplayed Amon's wide eyes and tears...they would almost look comical in a less tense situation.

Anyway, nice work!

I get what you mean with his facial expression. Honestly, I'm not the best with the extreme emotions, and I had to redo his face... like, 60 times; in the end, I kinda just got lazy and went "Fuck it, they know he's scared."

I'm practicing at it, so hopefully next time, it won't look so cheesy.

Thank you!

omg i am DYING! that link, hahaha... you made my night. thank you so much for sharing :lmao:

and YESSSS i totally spazzed when he came up the stairs. he's got that O_O face and you're thinking, "HAH! Tenzin CAUGHT you BITCH!" but instead it's FREAKING AMON! and then he can't get bloodbent!?! spazz atop spazz. I completely lost it... then korra busts through and their eyes meet and all i can hear now is, "i'm never gonna dance again...the way i dance with yooooooouuuu"

also your art rocks :D hrmm... "supposed amon scene". i am curious as to whether this story is the truth or not. despite his creepiness, amon seems more straight-laced than tarrlock... maybe it is the truth. :shrug:

Firstly....awesome art!

Secondly:

God this episode pretty much killed the fandom again. I was pretty incoherant for about an hour or so after I watched it, I wanted to draw but I couldn't stop shaking!
