One Last Pai Sho Match by Alamus One Last Pai Sho Match by Alamus
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.

One Last Pai Sho Match by Alamus makes great use of body language and facial expression to convey the mood in this piece.  Wonderful lighting as well. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

Zuko is surprisingly live a pretty long life for the one who always angry...
Well stress and anger killing you from the inside  I think I've fainted.

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!
