MakoandKorratime! by toerning MakoandKorratime! by toerning
Despite my continuing efforts for the National Bolin Awareness Association, I am not immune to Mako's surly charms.

Also "subversive gender roles" is like #2 on my Korra wish list. And by that I mean I just really want Korra to wear the pants in this relationship. They have such an awesome setup for some great boy/girl messing around and I hope they take it. Speaking of objectification of men, in an earlier version Mako was (surprise surprise) wearing his workout tank. But it looked like a romance novel cover for real it was so cheap looking haha CLOTHES, UGH.

<edit> fullllll viiiiieeeeww omg compression what are you doing to me </edit>

This is totally beautiful. I love how you paint— it's really fresh; bold and dramatic and gorgeous. Even in the dark there's such a variation of color. I love it!

And also— even though I have problems with Mako's way of dealing with girls, he is damn fine, and so is Korra, and you got that while making it your own. You rock!

I love these two together :3 And I agree with you - she should wear the pants in their relationship - at least half the time. They argue together well enough. Besides, he could take it - hell he could dig it xD

Sooo... Mako totally looks like Dave Franco (James Franco's brother) to me. Not sure if that was intentional, but definitely kinda cute. I really love the pose and composition of this, and both of their expressions.

Your cuddle/sexytimes-with-Korra pieces fill me with so much love for the characters. They just have such a wonderful sense of the warmth and weight of human bodies, and of the intimacy of human bodies in contact, which is a nice counterpoint to how much the series is about bodies in motion. Also, you do the best Mako/Bolin eyebrows. VERY IMPORTANT FEATURE.

Cheap looking? David Porter just informed me that romance cover illustrators can be paid like $20,000 dollars a pop.

(P.S. because I've revealed I'm from RISD, please do not look at my gallery. Just avoid it. I haven't updated it since I got here. I am only still around to follow people and fandoms :P)

Hahaha David Porter is a wonderfully optimistic man and while he speaks the truth, I would have to dedicate myself entirely to romance novel covers and completely reverse the track I'm on to ever make it up to that pay grade. And the work I'd have to do to get there would be so frustrating I don't think I'd make it!

Don't worry about it, I know plenty of people who do that.

I love Korra's rockin' arms. I ship this so hard, and I agree, I hope the gender roles are swapped! Korra is already clearly a tomboy.

I want them to have that sort of relationship SO BADLY, too. It would be a breath of fresh air to see a popular show with a rare character relationship. I can't wait for the next episode! Arrrrgh >_<
