Marlene Dietrich as Lin Bei-Fong by Chris-McRaven Marlene Dietrich as Lin Bei-Fong by Chris-McRaven
I saw this photomanipulation (made by 2 incredible artists: :iconreggamuffin: and :iconteaanemone:) of Malene Dietrich as Lin Bei-Fong on internet [link] . I Though It was amazing and I felt in love with this concept immediately. So, I decide to try to create a portrait of Lin base on this wonderful German actress.

And, this is the result. I don't like a lot how the armor looks, but I am pretty satisfied with her face.

I hope you like and, as you know, comments and critiques are welcome.

A/N: Legend of Korra and its characters belongs to Nickelodeon.

Gracias, pero no todo es de mi inspiración. Tomé el concepto de 2 grandes creativas, lo único que hice fue ponerle uno que otro detallito :)

I love that you used Marlene Dietrich as a base! We must now have all the old Hollywood babies together!

Well, no, not really, but I find no other way to represent my excitement over how awesome this idea is.

This is really nice!
I am umnachtung from tumblr who made the drawing that inspired you. Basically :iconteaanemone: posted a a picture of Marlene Dietrich and said she thinks it looks like Lin. So I grabbed the picture and doodled over it.
I bet your version took way more time than the one I made since I just slapped the whole armor and stuff over it.
It's nice to see that other people think that the both have something in common.

I cant believe what I'm reading. You both are the artists of the original drawing?! This is amazing!.
My dear friends, I really love what you did with Dietrich portrait. I admire this actress so much and when I saw her "transformed" into Lin... I said: "WOW!".
It´s a real honor you like what I did, but all the credit is yours. Because, I use your piece of art as base. I confess that I tried to draw a new armor by my own, but I couldn't. For that reason, I used that one that you designed. I just added some details. That's it. No more, no less.
Again, thank you so much for your comment! and send my regards to :iconteaanemone: .
