Family Portrait by chocowaffle Family Portrait by chocowaffle
The good days were behind us

I originally wanted to do a family portrait of Aang's family but I apparently like making myself sad all the time lol so I drew Yakone's family instead.

I had the music box version of the Main Theme of LOK on repeat while drawing this. Listen to it here --> [link]

Here's the tumblr post for it!

yes I definitely saw that resemblance. I thought that was really interesting for Tarrlok. It just made me wonder if he ever noticed that Korra looked like his long lost brother.

and I bet that's why Tarrlock was bugging Korra through the whole show.

also just curious do you take request?

that's what I originally thought but apparently the similarity between Noatak and Korra's hairstyle was an accident. The LOK crew realized they looked alike after they finished the animation and it was too late to change it.... I read it in the LOK art book *sigh* 

and I'm currently not open for requests but I am open for commissions.

no one. they just gave him that hairstyle and then realized oh crap it looks like korra... but it was too late to change it -_-" I wish it was more deep than that.

and I take paypal. email me at kyykao@gmail.com titled "commission" with what you had in mind if you're interested :)

now I see why there are Ammorra fans.

maybe he did and that reminds me of Fanfiction I am planning to write where Fire Lord Zuko who in his 70s or 80s wants to meet Korra and she reminds him of Katara.

In a way Yakone' s family is similar to Ozai' s family, but instead in Yakone' s family the older child excels more in bending than the younger child. Also, awesome family portrait. Wish they could have remained this way...

Awww, this is so sadly wonderful! They look perfect, and I love that it has the look of being done on the papyrus type paper, just like it would be in the avatar world. ^w^

My feels!

This is making me tearbend :iconcryforeverplz:

It's a beautifully drawn portrait. They look like a happy family, knowing what's really going on makes their smiles look fake. It makes you wonder how many families in real life have their dark secrets while looking happy on the outside...

Oh, this is lovely. And yea, I've been in love with the music box version of the theme song, too.

Whatever coloring style you've been using lately, it's awesome.

This is just absolutely beautiful. It resembles the animation style so closely that it's just... perfect.
It brings back so many emotions from watching the finale.

I'm not sure if I should be amazed at your ability to illustrate so closely to the style, be happy for seeing such wonderful art and the family all together and happy (as it should be for them), or sad because of all the feelings from the finale coming back to the surface coupled with that beautiful music box version of the main theme.

Putting an end to this sad story... of a family this beautiful...
