Oh god no. Korra is not white. Considering all it takes is one google search of Korra to figure out her skin colour this is just plain shameful.

Excellent rendition of Korralternate. Looks very much like one of the original character concept designs! Always interesting to see a different take on characters brought to life.

The posing, texturing, water effects, everything... So excellent. I'm very much amazed.

Very well done. :heart:

Very lovely take on one of the original character concept designs. I wish they'd kept that hair. I dig it.

Everything about this picture is absolutely amazing. :heart:

It's pretty but it's unusual to see Korra not her natural skin color.
Sure she looks pretty this way (and in her normal form<3).
BUT, we live in a society were lighter skin is the ideal image of beauty.
For the most part this will send out a negative message now matter how pretty it is.
And it is pretty.
I just hope you know and watch what your doing so nothing goes wrong.

The artwork is really good but only problem is that she doesn't look like Korra at all :/.

I never thought I would hate the whitewashing comments in this thread. I think it's pretty. Also, there are white waterbenders.

THANK YOU!!! And what people seem to forget is the fact that KORRA originally HAD light skin and different bangs/hair. I like both versions.

Plus that and the fact that no one could tell if the she was going to be dark skinned.

Give Heiyishi a break, this is her interpretation of Korra before the real Korra was released as an anime! I love it (^_−)−☆

...I thought Korra was a Native American. With brown skin and brown hair and lighter arm bands.

She is Inuit. However, in the (both old and new) cartoon, there are certainly very light skinned water tribe/benders.

This work is racist because you lightened her skin color a ridiculous amount. (Also, although not necessarily racist, her hair is brown.)

This work not racist, this is just you being an idiot and jumping into conclusions, that said - this was drawn and painted before Korra's look was revealed.

Wow this is whitewashed pretty badly. It could stand to be corrcted? Considering this is one of the most popular pieces on the Korra tag, it sends a pretty bad message about what is favored and what is not. I realize you made this before Korra's official appearance was released, but the contrast between what actually is and what is represented here is striking.

I'd agree if it was an original character, but Korra is brown, not white. In this picture she's almost pasty.

There's really no reason to get nasty, first of all. Secondly, while she might have been paler in concept art, in the actual show you can see that she is brown. I was simply trying to point that out for references for future artwork.

Here is Korra in the show:
