Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air

I've read that the producers based Korra's look and personality on a particular athlete, a mixed martial-arts fighter or something, but I'm not sure if it's the same person they might be using as a reference model.

Anyway, the animation is definitely not rotoscoped. The animators are no doubt using live models as reference, but aren't directly tracing them or anything. So the artists' skill and attention to detail is still very much a factor.
