I think someone just learned he was going to be a daddy for the 4th time...

Yup, I'm one of those who care a lot more about the older generation and their backstories than the main characters' antics. I mean, OK, Korra's badass and I like the boys. But... Tenzin :love:

I started this on the 16th and the sketch, lineart and colouring stages went pretty quickly, but I got stuck on the background. Said background was of course inspired by the meditation scene from episode 2, but I simplified it because, because... come on, it's probably my second attempt at a background, so be gentle. Maybe there's another gazebo-type thing on the island and that's where Tenzin was when she went to find him to tell him the good news? XD

This is excellent! Great artwork, and a good thing to illustrate. My only slight criticism is that Pema's smile looks a little forced. But the background and the sunlight are really beautiful.

I'm ashamed to admit it but that smile gave me so much trouble. So yes, it doesn't look quite right, but there comes a point where you just have to go with what you have otherwise you'll end up scrapping the whole thing :XD:

How sweet, although I don't think Tenzin would be that trilled. :XD:

Really? I know we often see him overwhelmed by his more… turbulent children, but I imagine him to be delighted with his growing tribe :)

I care more for Tenzin's generation and what Team Avatar did after the war ^^;

I understand why they're not giving us flashback after flashback, because this is Korra, but I really hope we get some good backstories before long.

This is really cute. I've come to really like them as a couple after watching one of the more recent episodes of Korra. Learning about how they got together. I couldn't help it. I awed.

Your line work is good and you can definitely feel a sense of weight in the picture. Your background is actually quite decent. Nice for your second try at backgrounds. :)

You are most welcome. ^_^ Backgrounds are indeed hard. I have trouble with them myself. Practice is always the best plan. :D

Oh wow, looks like we used the same picture as reference for the pose. Entirely unintentional, I swear ^^;

I know you weren't, but I just wanted to make it clear also. It is a funny coincidence indeed. That pose clearly means a lot to Tenzin and his father :XD:

Haha, like father like son I guess. XD

Just curious, what pic did you use as a reference? Or did you just freehand it?

Oh, that's okay I was just wondering. :) There has to be a pic out there somewhere though since both you and :iconselinmarsou: made pieces of the same pose. XD
