Lin Beifong Portrait by Inaara Lin Beifong Portrait by Inaara
Hello, thanks for visiting!

Third portait, Lin Beifong.

I've been creating these portraits by studying the characters in Legend of Korra. I look at the highlights and shadows that fall on their faces and paint what I observe. It's pretty fun to do :)

10/08/12 Update: I am just headed to work, but I want to thank KasumiCR for featuring this, and thank everyone who's coming here and supporting my artwork! You guys are an awesome community, thank you! I'll try to catch up with inbox after I get back home!

She's one of the strongest characters in the entire series. I literally felt a part of die inside when I saw her bending get taken away from her.

I like this portrait, you haven't sold out and taken the easy route of making the character "beautiful" to get an easy finish.

Honestly, most of the time I find portraits 110% boring, but this one feels vibrant and has great personality...

Thank you :) It is really important to me to capture the personality of a character when I draw.. I really feel like it adds a lot more :)

the lighting effect is really dramatic, the features are sharp and solid... and I can say nothing else, 'cause it's all brilliantly done :)
I also took a look at the Tenzin portrait. I hope you won't mind saying this, but both of these portraits have a minor slip that makes them kinda pitiful: the head is too close to the bottom edge of the frame. This would make the figure seems like it's dropping downwards. I suggest that you consider to move the head up a little, quite towards the centre (perhaps where the centre of the head is). The Korra portrait is positioned perfectly, so you can refer to that one.
Of course, that is just a positioning slip, not much of a major problem. So you truly deserve a DD. Congrats! :D

Thank you! (Also, I'm very sorry for my delayed response!)
I like to make my drawings represent the character themselves rather than idealize their looks :) Sometimes I feel a character can get lost in over-idealization
