ATLA/LoK: Farewell by kahel ATLA/LoK: Farewell by kahel
Edit: already on tumblr [link]

Finished maybe? WIP here [link]. I was originally planning to color this together with a companion piece, but then I kind of liked the mood it gave with monochromatic/sepia treatment, so I stopped there. Maybe later, let's see.

And now... cue music: [link]

Wonderful Drawing! You captured the essence of this scene beautifully. I love how Bumi is just standing their contemplating what he lost, how Kya is comforting a distraught Katara, and how Tenzin is the one who remains the most outwardly stable despite the fact he's probably crying harder than anyone else on the inside.

I noticed someone commented about this being a more solemn than sad occasion, and I think, given Avatar's cycle of reincarnation and rebirth, that this music would be perfect for this funeral:

The mood in this is wonderful, I don't think you need to add anything more. I really like the detail of the orange leaves in the wind, makes me think of Aang's warmth and free spirit; it really emphasizes the family's loss.

I really love how you capture the sadness and their personalities in their expressions, like Tenzin's fight to keep back tears. I really, really love this <3 and the color palette was very nice for a picture like this! ^-^

Jesus Christ... This is amazing. Such a fantastic tribute to ATLA through Korra characters. I am sincerely hoping something like this happens in LOK Season 2. If that happens, it could give "Iroh's Tale" a run for it's money of "Avatar Scene with the most feels being felt". If this scene ever happens with this [link] playing in the background, I will lose it. You can really catch the emotion through this tribute.
Speaking of ATLA Tributes, I have been going around DeviantART and if I find an amazing Avatar Artist, I mention this because I think you will appreciate! I made a tribute video to ATLA and it is posted in my profile. As a fellow Avatar fan, I think you will enjoy it!

Anyway I'm rambling now; amazing job. I :+fav:'d, Watched, and gave you a Llama.

Wow, thank you for the thoughtful comment! And oho, I have to say, that music clip is perfect for the scene, thanks for sharing. (:

And I saw your tribute video. It looks great! Ah, it makes me miss the first series though. But yeah, I guess that was the point. Anyway, awesome work! :D

Thanks again!

This is so beautiful. I love teh little details like Katara's hand clenched in anguish, and how Tenzin is trying to look strong: his father's dreams and hopes really rest solely on his shoulders now!
