korra by sakimichan korra by sakimichan
Korra print for Otakuthon : )I feel like this is not my best work, I was trying to go for a more dynamic pose, I wanted to try something new. I had lost of fun with the new brush I made by useing texture and dual brush option in photoshop. this was a good experimental piece. there are a lots of room for improvements for sure.

Being someone who LOVES Avatar: The Last Airbender, as well as The Legend of Korra, I freaked out when I saw this (faint muffled squeals of joy were heard in Who-Ville, that day...).


Personally, I think the less detailing on the lower half worked out; despite the lesser amount of detail there, you were constant, making it work. It also draws more attention to her face/arm pose, which helps to focus the viewer's eye on the main subject: Korra.


Overall, it is a very nice rendition. =)

Will you be adding this to your online shop? I love Korra D:
luckyndf Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013
clearly amazing. to point out that it is the lighting please compare the color of Korra's skin AND her hair should be darker but due to the light play... both appear lighter. good art is usually controversial. the fact that you have sparked debate means this is a great piece.

DAMN Thats so AMAZING!!! I love it!!! <3

KibaxNarutoLover Featured By Owner May 21, 2013
Nothing but love for the artwork of Korra, but it seems some people are blind to the fact she doesn't look at all pale, the lighting his bouncing off her skin, giving her a lighter color. I mean, even I can see that and I am hardly an expert of artwork of any degree. Her skin is perfect, YES it isn't the EXACT skin tone as the show, but no artwork ever is exactly the same as portrayed on TV.

Anyway, if you wanted to make her white, make her white, it's your artwork, your time, your hand(or tablet/mouse), do what you believe is right and all shall turn out perfect. However try to please everyone else and it will surely end with a horrible result.~

But in any event keep doing what you're doing.~ :iconpervykorraplz:

Love the lighting and pose! I don't understand all the hype about her being whitewashed, or too pale, she looks perfect! Looks true to the character to me for the lighting going on around her. Amazing job, love this!
Veliks Featured By Owner May 20, 2013  Student General Artist
What I do not understand is why some people are not able to understand the different directions lighting is hitting Korra. From the left there is an intense white light shining through the water. From the right there has bright orangish from the fire. Therefore, by the logic of those below, she should be accused of being colored ORANGE as well. Why ignore just ONE side of the lighting?
She's not "white-washed". There is CLEARLY pigment in her skin.
What is really "f-ed up" is when people just want to post disparaging comments to start a unnecessary problem.

I enjoy this piece. It has flow, pleasing composition, and wonderful color usage.
Thank you very much for sharing it on DA. Please do not be discouraged from continuing to share beautiful work with us.

MagicEve Featured By Owner May 20, 2013
this would be a really great piece of art if you hadn't drawn her so pale
