Yin and Yang by TSB-Studios Yin and Yang by TSB-Studios
Tui and La. The moon and ocean have always circled each other in an eternal dance. They balance each other. Push and pull. Life and death. Good and evil. Yin and Yang.

Koh, Avatar: The Last Airbender

More Amorra goodies :D
Download for full size; I made it with nice wallpaper proportions if anyone's interested.
This time they're standing in the Spirit Oasis pond in the Northern Water Tribe. The dress that Korra is wearing is the formal Water Tribe outfit that she wore to Tarrlok's gala in LoK S1 'The Voice in the Night'.

Background referenced from a screenshot of Avatar:The Last Airbender season 1 finale, "the Siege of the North." It's of the moment when Aang walks into the Spirit Oasis pond after Tui is killed, right before he merges with La. The pond starts glowing with cosmic energy.
And somehow, in my headcannon, when Korra and Amon kiss the moment is so magical that water starts glowing XD

I like to think of Tui and La being lovers or siblings. But I think the idea of Tui and La being lovers locked in an eternal dance is a bit more cute and romantic, since I'm a sucker for romance.

This is really remarkable. Shows a lot of thought and care went into it. I've been a fan of the Avatar and LOK series for a while but have only recently discovered that Amorra was ever even something being done by the fans, so to only just now be discovering such thoughtful and well done fan works has been just amazing. The LOK series had such a wealth of characters that the fan artists can explore what-if narratives of possible romantic pairings. Amorra presents the possibility that if Amon had ever removed his mask, Korra's primal fear of him would had been instantly changed to intense attraction, abandoning all sense or logic. Fantastic job with this, really makes an impression, one of the best on DeviantArt.

Ah this looks like such an epic and dramatic scene (;*△*;)! I really love the way you handled contrast in this pic (which is really fitting for the yin/yang theme going on here ^^!) And oh man! I'm very excited about 'The Healing'! The way you handled the plot, the characterization of everyone, the intense amount of action, eventually leading up to some strong Amorra interaction! My goodness, your fic is really up there for me. One of the driving points for me was the action in it and how you stilled based the story around the reality that the Equalist party isn't going to rest just because their leader was found out to be a fraud, so I really appreciated alot of the exposition you put in. Gaaaahhh my feels ;m;! So much respect, man, respect... Aaaaaah going back to this, I'm really looking forward to see this scene in 'The Healing' ^^!

Thank you so much! I'm glad to hear someone like 'The Healing', I wasn't very confident of it when I first started out and it really pleases me to get a positive response :hug:
Although as for this scene appearing in the fanfic...er, it's not actually related to the fanfic in any way ^^;. It was just a scene that was practically burned into my head and I had to draw it, and at the same time I decided to use it as a cover for the Healing. I could, however, give a brief mention of it in the epilogue :)

Oh! I see now xD! Well I still think it's a very fitting image for 'The Healing' ^^! Haha I was thinking... how did they both get to the Northern Water Tribe capital in the story xD? But I wasn't going to ask because I believed you can make it happen and it'll make sense and be awesome and a cohesive part of the story XD

wow! great use of light and dark (as well as composition!) to create a really intense image. Love how there's a real sense of movement from the spirits and the waterfall. Such a strong contrast to the tension between the characters :heart:

Anyone can draw humans though, you'll just have to keep practising. :) It took me a long time to get my humans to start resembling people, before that they all looked like butt-ugly aliens. You should've seen my earlier works. Actually I hope you don't, they are soooo embarassingly ugly. When I look at my early stuff (which I've long deleted from this site XD)I feel like my eyes are bleeding.

lol I know that feel XD But persevere! Unless you're some freaky artistic genius, everyone starts off drawing things that don't end up looking like their expectations. For me, I like to look at other artists' works, and think to myself, 'wow, they're really good, if I keep trying one day I'll get to their level!' It's quite a good motivator. :)

I can see the appeal in both pairings, but I might lean more to Makorra which was my original shipping.
