Korra x Asami: Balance by Chareon Korra x Asami: Balance by Chareon

Here it is! My second Korrasami fanart. :P

I love that the theme of Book 4 applies to them perfectly; they balance each other out. Korra is impulsive, stubborn, and hotheaded, while Asami is cool, calm, and collected. Korra has a fiery nature (despite being from the water tribe) and Asami is the water that appeases her. I was originally going to work only with red and blue hues, but I like it better this way.

I really want to draw more, but I'm currently doing my internship in a hospital and it's really toxic. But oh well, I'll draw when I can! :)

Hi! I would first of all like to say that this is a really cute piece of fanart, and the entirety of it is just amazing to look at. However - and I really hope I don't come across as hateful when I say this, because I really don't mean anything untoward - Korra's skin tone is a little too light than it was in the show. I don't wish to accuse you of whitewashing, as I'm sure that wasn't your intention, but a lot of Korra fanart has Korra's skintone lightened on purpose, and it's a sadly growing issue. You do seem like a very nice person, and I just wanted to let you know. It is a nice piece, though!

Hi!! Thanks so much for airing your concern! I've noticed that, too. It wasn't intentional! I originally had them colored like this: Raw colors. I actually like the contrast of their skin colors.

However, after I've added the background and some textures, it turned out this way. As you can see, even Asami got whiter as an effect. (Her eyes are less green, too! :<) Sorry I didn't do anything about it anymore; I didn't think it would matter (since I had no idea there's such a thing as whitewashing). I'll be more meticulous next time. I'm sorry if it caused you any kind of discomfort. It was't intentional. :( And thank you again for speaking up! I think it's great that you did!

P.S. Here's my previous Korrasami fanart. Just to show you I'm not into this "whitewashing" thing. :)

I'm glad it wasn't intentional on your part, and I have to say I do like the original colouration as well.

And yes, I am noticing that now. It's a shame that sometimes lighting can have that effect (I'm not actually a digital artist, so I don't know TOO much about what effects it can have on the finishing piece), but there's no need to apologize for it. ^^ It's not so much a personal discomfort, but a lot of people within the Korra fandom have whitewashed her before, and it's just sad to see that happen to such a great character. I'm glad you're so receptive to it though, as I had a feeling there was no malice behind it. ^^ 

(And that drawing is absolutely gorgeous *A* so jealous of your talent)

Thank-you for being so receptive, but kudos to the tremendous art. :)

This is really cool. Both are very beautiful and Korras expression is lovely and her hair is great. It seems to be a little bit longer than in the series, but i think it suits her, because this way she looks even cuter.
I like the concept as well, how their bodies are combined and their hands meet in the middle. This plus the colours makes it an amazing picture.

Yes, you're right, her hair is a bit longer here, my bad!

Wow thank you so much for that comment, you really made my day! I tried to put like a glowing light between their hands, and I wanted to add purple (you know whyyy) streaks/rays to add to the symbolic elements. Buuuuut it didn't look good. Hahaha! Again, thank you so much! :hug:

You are very welcome. :)

I don't think the longer hair is a failure. In my mind, Korra will let her hair grow again after the final. That's why I see your version as one step in the right direction.

This is a very nice composition :D
Also the way you drew them comes very close to the shows art style.

And let's not forget Korra being the Avatar, the world's spiritual guide and Asami being the head of one of (if not the largest) tech companies in the world.

It is funny that Water Tribe Korra is the hot headed one while Fire Nation descended Asami is the calm, collected one.

Yes, exactly! It's just perfect!

Hahaha yeah! Korra's always clad in blue, but she has a fiery nature. Asami is always in red, but she has the cool and calm temperament. Kyaaa~ :">
