Korra and Asami having a drink in the Spirit World!

For me the Spirit World is so colorful and vivid, it just doesn’t fit my taste. So that’s why I chose to color it a little bit differently. Also it was a great practice to draw backgrounds, I’m so bad at scenery. Hope you like it! ^_^

Background practice with Korra.

I don’t know if I’m delighted that Korra is literally going on a life changing field-trip, or heartbroken because she’s all on her own she should’ve travelled with Zuko, doesn’t she know that you need Zuko for a proper life changing field-trip? 

I don’t think she even took Naga with her. Poor Naga :(

ETA: If anyone’s interested, I’ve uploaded a step-by-step of the second picture here


MD: The wealth disparity between the rich and the poor in Ba Sing Se has become much worse since Aang first visited the city. Episodes like this one are very taxing for the entire design team, as there are many different locations and so many background characters that need to be fleshed out to make Ba Sing Se feel like a real, lived-in city. 

BK: Seeing all of these Lower Ring character designs imbued with so much personality makes me wish that every one of them somehow could have a spotlight moment on-screen. You can tell by these designs the middle Ring denizens are privileged to have more fortunate, less back-breaking lives than those in the severely oppressed Lower Ring. Finally, we have the elite Upper Ring citizens, people descended from families that have been wealthy for so long very few of them know what it means to actually do a day’s worth of honest work.
