I saw the thumbnail for this, thought it was awesome to see more inspirations from Gustav Klimt, and then saw it looked even better up close when I clicked it.

Awesome job, a unique looking Makorra fanart. :)

aw, thank you so much! I'm grateful of people taking the time to full view :love:

This was a nice opportunity to try something different. Trying to break somewhat from my artistic monotony? hahaha.
And I do love Klimt so :heart:

nahhhh! i mean, it happens and he's dead now...soooo, yeah.. especially with a style so unique~ there have been plenty of people that have recreated his painting "The Kiss" (myself included, but it's a work in progress, haha).

I love "The Kiss"! (have it hanging massively and gloriously behind me lol). I want to see your version! :D
It's weird I like other people's Klimt-styled stuff but I myself feel guilty >.> lol so self conscious D: oh welp

oh, hahaha. in my art history class we discussed the intimacy that was conveyed in the piece, but a theory that involves the girl leading the man off the ledge to his death.

i thought it fit Asami well in the fact that the fans know so little about her, but they have all these speculations of her being an Equalist, betraying the Korra Krew, etc. on the other hand she could really just be a wonderfully developed character who gives great insight on what it's like to be a non-bender and go against all of the negative things that people have been saying about her.

and now i'm rambling nonsense, haha....

hm. that's really interesting. (lol I was trying to figure out how the fact that Klimt painted it while living with his mom might connect to Masami. faillllol) uh! that is one of the reasons I love that painting. The first time I ever saw it I thought it was the most romantic thing ever, but then different interpretations sprung up the more I saw it. so fascinating. once i even thought he kind of looks like a vampire trying to eat her or something >.> uhh wow what an insightful idea...anyways..

hahaha! my sister thought that Asami was SO SUSPICIOUS. I am open minded!/very fool-able(?) we shall see :3
but in any event I'll stop now D:

excited to see the finished product! :D

hahaha I had mixed feelings about the heavy Klimt-ness (it just seemed so presumptuous and wrong of me! D: ). But when I think of Makorra I think of the lovely golden probending arena and.. this happened... >.<
Glad you like it! :blushes:
