So Korra Season 3 left rather heavy, so I thought a bit of lightening up was in order.

A fanart of Old Lady Katara and Old Man Zuko enjoying one last game with a old friend. 

This was done all in Manga Studio.

**Update**
D8! Wow, so my box just exploded! Thanks so much for the DD :iconlyricanna: and thanks to all the people who enjoy this piece.

I just want to say that I'm glad that this series is still going strong with the fans despite the set backs from the network.

Also a shout out to all the artists here on DA who actually work/worked on the show at some given point (whether in the Nick HQ in Cali or Studio Mir in Seoul). You guys are awesome and an inspiration.

And a piece a blast from the past.

This is an awesome picture. It captures their personalities so well. I love the idea that they become such good friends after everything.

Is it weird I was hoping for old!Zuko and old!Katara to end up like Pakku and Gran-Gran in AtLA? Meow Bounce
btw love the piece, Katara always does have the upper hand!! And that smirk knows it!!

This definitely takes the edge off my desperate need for an elderly team avatar reunion! Haha, looks like Zuko never quite got the hang of pai sho, or maybe Katara learned a few tricks from Iroh. Not that she isn't clever enough to stump the Fire Lord all on her own of course. Love this!

She's got you there, Zuko. Oh, Katara, you sly old woman, you.
I love, love, love this. <33
