Korra's Krew by lycanthropeful Korra's Krew by lycanthropeful
MORE Legend of Korra fanart. I know guys, sorry. I just am absolutely in love with the new Team Avatar. Well, Asami's just kind of "meh" to me right now, but we've seen she can handle herself, and I'm excited to see what she will do in the future!

Though I have the bad habit of cutting off characters' legs, I hope this composition shows some creative liberty, and is still interesting. I think it has a decent flow. Please let me know if you see some glaring errors and whatnot. Bolin gave me a hard time. I also think Asami turned out looking like Christina Aguilera...

Textures are from Lost and Taken.

Tools: Photoshop CS4 and a Wacom tablet

THAT RED PANDA IS THE CUTEST THING EVER!!! So cute it demanded Capslock >____>
No one shades skin as wonderfully as you! Love the hint of purple in the shading <3

PABU! Sadly I don't really think I did his cuteness justice here. Have you watched this show? If you haven't, you really should. ;)

Thank you dear! :)

I love how serene Korra is in this drawing, since normally I imagine people depicting her fiery side. nice work on her muscles too, as always .. :P On the subject of expressions, I really like the variety here and you really captured each person's character well. I also love that you snuck in Naga and Pabu! (Of course, what would the krew be without them!?) Brilliant work on the coloring overall, you're pretty much a god at shading. Asami does look a little bit like Christina Aguilera a bit! Haha. I'd say the only thing would be to have given Bolin thicker eyebrows... They are like caterpillars, man @_@ All in all, this is fantastic Kelly =)

I decided to switch it up with Korra. I can and probably will draw her "fiery side" until the end of time, but since she is slowly becoming a more multilayered character, it's only fair to reflect that. I really enjoyed trying to capture their personalities. Thanks! :)

Things to fix: narrow out Asami's face a bit, and definitely give Bolin the caterpillar eyebrows. Haha.

And HEY GIRL, when are we gonna see LoK fanart from you? :excited:

And that's one of the reasons why I love you and your art so much :)

Haha I posted a new sketch of Korra on facebook/tumblr a couple days ago! Not sure if you have seen it or not. Hopefully I actually finish this one :)

SHIT, SON. I love the coloring on this. So much. And you know what, I love everything else, too. ;;

I don't know what people are talking about with Asami and whatnot, and honestly I think she looks VERY WOMANLY. I haven't actually watched the show yet (I know, I need to, and I know for a fact that I will get into this fandom once I actually DO) to really have a solid idea of what all the characters look like, but I just think this is so fabulous! I love it. Just everything about it is great. And I'm sorry I can't think of anything more to say than "HEY IT'S GREAT", but I just really really really like it, okay? ;0;

Also, fuck that first poster on this great-ass picture. Really. Guess you can't escape fools in ANY fandom, huh? Douche.

Great, glad you like it (the color in particular, I mean)! It's such an easy technique: just two separate layers both set to Multiply, and that's it. I picked a purply-gray, and that seemed to not make anyone's shading look too vibrant or anything strange.

Well hey, habits ARE hard to break, and while I am sort of actively trying to be able to draw more "womanly" females, since I don't draw many o' those, I honestly thought Asami looked alright. No, she's not as pretty here as she is in the show, but I'm doing my best to integrate my style into Mike and Bryan's own. No worries! It's just always best to be given ways to improve instead of just getting called out.

Anyhow, thanks dudette, it means a lot. :)

PFFFF BUT I DO THAT ALL THE TIME AND- AND- ... I don't know, you're just better at painting people to look three-dimensional. So jealous. I shall study more to become better...
I dunno, I guess in the way of critique for Asami is not that her chin is long (I think the length is fine), but maybe that it's not narrow and pointy enough. I know the show's style is like this weird American-anime hybrid (but with actual animation instead of shitty still-frames that only consist of two whole frames with the character's lips moving, like most anime), and looking at screenshots of her (damn Asami is really hot; I'd tap it), she seems to have a pointy chin. It's probably nothing the Liquify tool in Photoshop couldn't handle, though.

Still loving this, an hour later. ;;

To be completely honest I don't see anything wrong with this. Love how you do fanart in your own style instead of in their original one.
The colouring as always is absolutely brilliant.
I see nothing wrong with the faces and even if I did I wouldn't have the heart the comment because I couldn't draw them like that in a million years.
Fantastic work <3

Perhaps instead of outright insulting her work like a five-year-old you could offer some critique to help her improve.

Oh, and next time, please make sure it at least LOOKS like you have some knowledge in this category of artwork, instead of recolors. Thanks.

I'll admit I had some trouble with Asami and her chin's probably too long, but if you could offer some constructive critique I'd greatly appreciate it...
