Korra Portrait by Inaara Korra Portrait by Inaara
Painting practise turned into Korra portrait.

I watched an episode and noted how the light was reflecting off of her face... so that is how I came up with these features...

Uhhh thanks for looking. Legend of Korra's a great show.

Edit: Wow, thanks for the response you guys! I look forward to drawing more of these :)

I thought you might want to see that someone on tumblr has accused you of white washing Korra :/

But besides that, I love how well you made her. I do wish that you made her look more like the nomadic tribes, but thats just me :) Keep up the great work though!

Blah, yeah I know. Everyone's entitled to their opinion I suppose, but I feel like if they aren't going to talk to me directly about it, I don't really worry about it.. after all, I have explained how I go about drawing these :).

Thank you. Like I said in the description, I try to do a fairly literal translation of how the characters are drawn in the show. I study the lines that are drawn, and the contours of the face that are implied with light and shadow. I do appreciate other people's interpretations of the characters, a lot of them are really great :)
