Someone Special by Dakotaa Someone Special by Dakotaa
For the most part, we donít really see how Bolin misses or thinks of his parents. I like to think that while Mako was closest to their dad, Bolin was closest to their mom. And although Bolinís memories of his parents have faded over time, he can still remember her long hair, her smile, and how she always smelled of this certain special flower.

This comic was a big experiment for me and the coloring was something I decided last minute. It was actually going to be in full color but I like how it turned out with the black and white and pink. I also had cut out about 3 panels because I was getting impatient, but I'm actually pretty okay with it this way. less is more and all that. xD;

And now I'm gonna go sob myself to sleep listening to "I Want A Mom That Will Last Forever" song.


Art and Bolin's mom, Mei Lin, concept belongs to me.
Bolin and Legend of Korra belong to Bryke.

I can't be the only one who's getting a vibe that this would be a perfect "Tale of Bolin" if LoK had a homage episode to Tales of Ba Sing Se? It's just got such a touching premise and beautiful execution... ;A;

That third panel is just absolutely stunning: the bittersweet smile, the way the pink infused the panel without being overbearing, the tenderness he shared with his mother, just gorgeous.
