love drawing Yue!  though her hair is so difficult.  ugh.  so this took about seven or eight hours…um
disclaimer: i know that when someone paints someone from the water tribe, they’re work is usually immediately labeled by someone, somewhere, as whitewashed.  i try my best to depict all characters as they appear in the show; for extra security, i lifted Yue’s skin tones from an actual Yue screencap.  i also referenced an actress of color for the base drawing.  i’ve noticed that those of the northern water tribe—Yue in particular—tend to have lighter skin than their southern counterparts.  
anyway.
enjoy.
