Bolin Stamp: Not Fat by BurningArtist Bolin Stamp: Not Fat by BurningArtist
*Other Bolin Stamps:

So instead of doing artwork/comic work/commissions/gifts/bringing about world peace I'm making stamps & generally cooing over the very though that the new Avatar The Last Air Bender series has premiered today it's first 2 episodes (which I saw the leaked versions of 2 weeks ago.)

Now, in the original ATLAB series I was all gaga for Zuko & Sokka Both being the broody & comical characters. Sokka was my go-to amusement guy (boomerang!!) & Zuko was my adorable broody prince who was socially awkward and thus still provided me with some awesome laughs and "aww" moments. So, I thought: "Holy crap, I'm screwed." These 2 new team avatar boys are pretty much Sokka & Zuko's reincarnations personality wise and how the heck will I be able to chose a favorite?

I was greatly mistaken.

While Mako takes a slighty less "broody" cue from Zuko, Bolin takes a more flirty & confident turn away from Sokka and I'll be honest, it hit me like cupid's arrow. While I do admit that Mako is the "hotter" (no pun intended) brother (it doesn't help that he seems older and since I'm an old lady I'm more inclined to opt for the older "men" ) his personality is still kinda developing and he seems pretty average Joe so far. But Bolin is just too frickin' cute and I've been running around DA collecting avatar art & especially Bolin art.

But one thing bugged me pretty bad when I kept reading Makorra fanfiction & reading things written by Bolin sympathizers on the obvious non-cannon'ness of "Borra" (Korra+Bolin) he kept getting called "fat".

And maybe it's cause I've been really looking at a lot of art but Bolin isn't fat. He has a different build than Mako, him being tall & lean while Bolin is muscular and stout (proper earth bending build btw) so I made this stamp to remind people to stop calling him fat because it's just not true!

Another stamp will follow soon enough about Bolin fan-girls so be ready for that one! XD

That's true! Look at Bolin when he is in the role of Nuktuk! He's very muscular!

I never even THOUGHT he's fat
I mean common

Just cause he's not skinny-anorectic with muscles (like the body a lot anime dudes have) DOESN'T mean that he has anythin' to do with bein' FAT
my boyfriend has a similar body
he's short, and it makes the body look -WIDER- (not FATTER)
and he's muscular as well

I put up this stamp on the day of the premiere of Korra. It was pretty much everyone's impression at the time. Now it's more obvious but I still like this stamp. XP

Noo! Why some people can't see differense between fat and muscular/ stocky. Then all my favourite characters are so called "fat". No, I disagree!  Bolin, Hagrid, John Silver, Heavy, Obelix, Hiro, Violence Jack, Wreck it Ralph, Wolverine... They are pure power. Not fat. APH Prussia tackle hug

"I'm Fluffy!"
Well...technically the better term is "buffy", but that just brings up non-related images of vampire slaying cheerleaders...

That's the very reason I made that stamp. :nods:
I mean, look at him! At least now in season 2 they showed him with his shirt off so you could see how buff he is.
Too bad they killed his personality by making him a doofus. D:<

Is Bolin a mesomorph or a fit endomorph?

Mmmm... That's hard to tell since he seems overall pretty fit. It would be easier to tell if we saw him at an earlier stage in developing his body. Remember though, Bolin is only 16 and thus, still has a way to go with his growth. He still "technically" has the capacity to gain height for a couple more years which might change his body definition in proportion. Of course, these ARE cartoon characters so I doubt they will. Also, the preferred archetype build for earth benders tend to be strong evenly proportioned builds and are rarely lanky, elongated characters.

So right now by looking, which one do you think he is?

BurningArtist Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's really hard to tell. I guess I'll go with the Mesomorph since that's what his body looks like right now.

Frankly, I hated Mako from the first episode I saw. I kept thinking... He'll get better. No, I'm sure he will. And he never did. Bolin, however, is the definition of love. The only character that I took a great liking to other than Pabu and Lin. :love:

I'm a fan of Tenzin too. LOL No, Mako to me felt just "vanilla".
So I figured, maybe they'll develop him. No really. :S
Bolin was also love from the get-go. :D

I admit, when I first saw the show, I thought he was chubby, but I was judging by his face. When I saw him in that scene (your stamp pic), I was like, "Woah! He's hot and fit! Not fat at all!"

It would have been awesome if he was fat, though the implications would be even worse. But he's not fat.

Dude, exactly he's Husky! No not the type of husky mommy's tell there sons to make them feel less pudgy... Husky : Someones who's usually large framed and is overweight yet maintains a muscular toned form! Honestly I love his build so much better then Mako's! Mako's lean and thin while Bolin's frame seems more manly and powerful! Bolin fangirl for life!

That is soooooo true!!!
I hate people saying his fat because he has a rather round face!! That's like the main reason most go for Mako instead of him!! IT'S UNFAIR!!!!!!!

People should realize this!!!
