Steampunk Asami by Yuuza Steampunk Asami by Yuuza
Yea, i took some artistic liberties here <: but i still hope you like it.
The end of Legend of Korra was interesting, a bit sprang out of nowhere, i would have liked to see some foreshadowing to it honestly because it didn't seem very believable that Korra ends up with Asami since they never had any gay moments on the show :/ oh well, congrats to the creators for being bold in any case ^u^ honestly, Mako was kind of a jerk.

Nice work. The show did have a bit of a steampunk-esque feeling to it. (Or maybe it's dieselpunk... I don't really know those subcultures...:| (Blank Stare) )

supposedly there were moments but they were subtle & unnoticeable to those only concentrating on her being heterosexual instead of possibly bi *like I was XD*

beautiful piece

Wow that's beautiful!
I agree with you, the korrasami thing at the end was too sudden.

I love this very much. Keep it up, and one day you will be famous,  if you're not already. 
However,one thing that is bothering me is her mouth. Her teeth look sorta funny for some reason. Again, thisi very beautiful.

So THIS is what Asami was like during her rebellious teenage years! ;)

I loved the ended of korra. It wasn't about the love moments before, but the good thing about the last season is that you see the confidence between them, but love is a second part of the story, so you don't care that much until the very end. 

Love this desing. Asami reallylooks beautiful!

I was rooting for KorraXAsami and while it may have not been obvious (I really...really wish Kids Show would allow that to be obvious), I was super stoked when that ship sailed Sailing the seven seas .  However, I completely understand that it did appear out of no where, even though I love the pairing.  Asami is just sweet and calm as well as confident as you made her in this image.  I love the detail on her green eyes and really love the embroidery on her clothes.  Fantastic!

P.S: Mako was a jerk!...He made Korra and Asami fall for each other!  hah!
Yuuza Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
but they aired all season 4 on the internet, the pulled the show from nickelodeon ever since season 3 and so they had a free hand to show anything! 
Yea, Mako was a jerk, they didn't play that character well enough and that's kind of a shame because i liked him at first ^^
artisticallystrange Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Good point!  They should've just said "eff it" but alas :(

I liked Mako at first too but then he just...kinda felt flat to me after a while.  Too bad

In regards to how Korrasami and the finale's ending "came out of nowhere" for you, allow me to quote Bryan Konietzko on this matter:  
“If it seems out of the blue to you, I think a second viewing of the last two seasons would show that perhaps you were looking at it only through a hetero lens.”  Also, "despite what you may have heard, bisexuals DO exist."………

Seriously though, they've been dropping hints and such of Korrasami becoming canon since the first episode of Book 3.  Sure, the two may not have ever kissed, but that's mainly because the censors never would have allowed that kind of super-obvious gay stuff (merely doing what they did in the finale was a damn bold and ground-breaking move for a show targeted at children).  To me, Korra and Asami's upgraded relationship felt like a very natural next step and it really embodies the show's overall theme of balance: benders and non-benders, technology and spirituality, fighting and peace-making (grated, each of them has had their moments of dabbling in the other field on this point).  Also, I agree that Mako was kind of a jerk, but the important thing is that he learned a great deal from his relationships with Korra and Asami and he's becoming a much better person because of it (plus, I think we can all agree that him getting back together with Korra or Aasami would've felt super-forced after the stuff he pulled back in Book 2).  

Also, this is some beautiful artwork, right here.

Those were just hints. And i know they were dropping them, but honestly, do you remember how Korra jumped Mako when she liked him? That's her personality, impulsive and she's extrovert, she shows her feelings out into he open. I know they were 'dropping hints' but really, they were just too scared to go all out because they were afraid of what people might think.
If you want to look deep into any close relationship, you can see 'hints' anywhere. What about Frodo and Sam? They seemed very gay but weren't. Unless they kiss or do something obviously romantic like a date or blushing, or holding hands and blushing, it's not romantic, it's just close friendship.
And that is what i believe.
dinodude0091 Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2015
I dunno, that look they were giving each other when they entered the Spirit Portal seemed pretty damn obviously romantic (body language, music, mood, the fact that Bryke officially said Korrasami is canon, etc).  Besides, Korra USED to be impulsive and brash, but four years/seasons have done quite a number for her maturity (this fact was further driven home by how Kuvira was so much like the old Korra in her determination and ruthless fighting style); the relationship between her and Asami developed naturally from rivals/acquaintances to true friends to romantic partners over the same four year period in a way that felt surprisingly organic and realistic.  
Yuuza Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Yea, i just didn't see it ^^ It didn't seem romantic at all to me
dinodude0091 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015
To once again reference the holy words of Bryke, "hetero lens."  

Seriously though, I HIGHLY recommend watching the entirety of seasons 3 and 4 again.  Maybe you'll see what you missed then. 
Yuuza Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Am i really viewing through hetero lens? Or was the creator so subtle with the hints they were almost nonexistent? Maybe, the creator was making the series through a "hetero lens" unable to believable show romance between to characters of the same sex. 
All those 'hints' you mentioned earlier, i've noticed them the first time i saw it, re-watching would be redundant. 
dinodude0091 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015
I'll admit, I'm a hard-core Korrasami shipper and even I thought they would go the "just friends" route with their interactions (mainly because I thought the censors would never let them get away with that kind of stuff, what with gay couples being illegal in certain countries and about half of the United States).  Still, there's a damn good reason why Korra wrote back to Asami rather than Mako or Bolin during her 2 and half year stay in the South Pole. 
Yuuza Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Of course, there is no doubt they are a couple, the creators made an official post telling all the confused fans about it. I'm a fan of this couple too, i just think it was underplayed. 
This is mainly because they aired the whole season 4 online, there was no network television to censor them anymore, they could have done anything! If it weren't for that, then i would understand why they would make it so subtle.
