the finale was beautiful and i had to make a piece about it. thank you, bryke, for showing us that strength can manifest itself in many different ways within one character.

Yeah, this took me like two hours because I was trying to figure out the motion blur thing for those ball thingies.
NICK. Y U NO UPDATE GAME?
EDIT: I forgot to add the red stripe on his shoulder lol.

me: thank you but, to be honest, its called “pants” and not an “ass shirt”
Not a process but just wanted to show what it looked like before all the extra stuff. Getting better at poses though :p
i at least attempted to jump on this korra-has-short-hair-now drawing bandwagon heyo
Haven’t done anything with color in a while.. Decided to experiment with color with young P’li and Zaheer!
"We have to do something!"
When I first watched this episode I thought, “aw that’s so cute Kai cares about Korra but why didn’t Jinora, Ikki or Meelo say this line? I mean that’s basically their sister from another mister.” but then after a while I thought about it - after finding out that he lied to them, Korra was the one to stop the officers from taking Kai away and the one willing to take him in, no matter what he did. She put her faith in him that he could change. Even before they found out he was lying, she was the one to fight the “outlaws” for him. She was the one standing up for him. He was such a troubled kid who’s been through a lot and Korra was the first one to actually show affection for him after they found out he lied. Even Tenzin didn’t want him a part of the new air nation at first but Korra did. It was her decision to let him stay and to give him a chance that changed Tenzin’s mind. If she hadn’t spoken up and let the officers take him away, there’s no telling where he’d be right now.
So in this moment here he is, helplessly watching as a vicious airbender torture the woman who’d taken him in. The woman who stood up for him. The only woman who’d given him a chance and saved him from being in jail. Yes, Korra is like an older sister to Tenzin’s children but for Kai, Korra is his savior and the reason why he got a second chance. And that’s why he’s so desperate to do something.
She saved him. He just wanted to save her too.
