Korrasami: Just Married by FireNationPhoenix Korrasami: Just Married by FireNationPhoenix
A collaboration piece with the talented :iconhisonae:. She did the colors, I did the lineart. I have to say, when I told her "Color this any way you want" she really brought it to life and it has something that feels new, like rebirth. I teared up when I saw the final product, and yes, the lines are completely my line work, I always draw my lines with a sketchy feel to them. Sh really did an amazing job, so go check the stuff on her profile, it's pretty amazing. 

So this piece was something I'd been planning since May, I drew a rough sketch while at school during finals week of Korra and Asami riding off on Naga and it was based upon a picture of my parents at their wedding riding a horse down Cambria and shouting "Just Married" to the locals. I decided to take it further and drew a water tribe symbol with became like a stained glass window one would find at a chapel. I even have the girls in the same pose as my parents. This piece is really sentimental to me and has a special place in my heart. The vibrance and warmth of the piece reflects how much fondness I have for the Korra fandom as a whole. I've really found a home with the Korra fandom, after three years of trying to find a fandom I found a permanent home with Korra. I discovered that my place was not with Avatar, but with Korra. I will always enjoy Avatar, but if Avatar is like a vacation villa, Korra is like a permeant residence. The people in my groups and my close friends have all made me feel so welcome and accepted. I really Identify with Korra and she's surpassed Zuko as my favorite character in the franchise, that's something that takes a lot. Korra is my official account mascot and she will always be my flagship character. 

When it comes to Korrasami, I remember first seeing the premier season and wondering, "why don't these two date?". I've always had a soft spot for Korrasami, even though it was kind of a secret thing I was shipping as I was shy to admit that I was shipping the couple. When I saw them walk off into the spirit portal back in december of 2014, I was at my uncle's cabin in Colorado on a snowy evening with my childhood friend and that memory of seeing LGBT representation was one of the best christmas gifts I could have received. I am straight, but I have many LGBT friends who I care for deeply and Korrasami has brought out both my creative spirit and my love for my dear friends. Thank you Mike and Bryan for creating my favorite female character of all time, and thank you to the Korra fandom for helping me find my place on deviantart. :iconyesfinallyplz:. As always, much love to everyone :hug: 

KORRASAMI IS CANON AND YOU GOTTA DEAL WITH IT!

YESSSSSS, THE DORITO OF PURE EVIL!!!! I met a few Bill cosplayers at a convention i went to back in July. Every time I get a position as a manager in a group, I do the Weirdmageddon speech in the journals. I hope they decide to bring him back in future graphic novels

I wonder if prior to this they had a coin toss;
Heads =  Naga
Tails = Sato Mobile

Also, that's a really sweet story about your parents :)

Haha, Naga is a good way to make a wedding enterence. This artist and I are doing more of these stained glass window pieces this year, but this one was specifically a wedding chapel style window. I wonder if any Republic City artists practice stained glass art.

Yes my parents had a nice wedding. My aunts dog also gave birth during the cerimony XD. For years my aunt had this chow chow that hated everyone but her and it mated with her friends chow that loved everyone and they had a litter of 8 puppies ^^

Do you have any idea what a collaboration is? It's a piece where two artists do half of one piece, i did the lines, my friend colored it in, and it's totally legal when both artists credit each other, many dA staff members do these as well as the professional artists. So yes, it's my piece but half is also my friends so she gets half the credit and is allowed to repost it so long as she credits me. That's how a collab works :)
