More Krew scraps. Enjoy.

ETA: Tumblr: [link]

Kaaay, this is highly experimental and I’m not sure I even like it. But I wanted to use color to represent their heritages, elements and bonds all at once.

-Mako and Bolin are both dominated by the colors native to their elements but “reflect” each other’s colors as mixed-race brothers.

-Korra as the avatar has the colors of all four nations in her. I kinda wish I’d blended more blue in in a clever manner, but whatever. I’m just goofing.

-Then for Asami, being from Republic City and of confirmed Fire Nation heritage I have her bleeding into Mako’s red very heavily, but I wanted a little bit of green in her too under the headcanon that she’s had fire/earth mixing somewhere in her line. Purple has always been her chosen color for me—even though her color scheme in the show also leans more towards red—because it is a color not claimed by any element in particular.

-The placement of the colors reflects their contact mostly, also intended to show how they’re all bonded in some way
The red string of fate is used in its more correct romantic implications throughout fanart—I decided to use it in a more liberal sense, reflecting that all kinds of bonds can tie people together

I fav'ed this, but didn't comment... OTL

Just want to say that I love the symbolism in this, especially the "red string of fate". :)

Great job!

P.S. I think purple suits Asami very well. :)
