Avatar State by dCTb Avatar State by dCTb
Companion piece to Spiritual State that I did last year. Coloring and lining this was too much for me and my laptop. I really like how this came out but this style was very challenging so I know a lot of little things could've been better if I had some more experienece. Despite how difficult this was for me to do, I'm already thinking that I should do another similar piece for Aang!

Artwork © dCTb
All work done in GIMP
•Style inspired by Legend of Korra, Beginnings part 1 & 2
•Listened to "Spiritual State" by Nujabes feat. Uyama Hiroto on repeat again.  The song is too amazing.
•Used Chinese calligraphy font editor  to generate stylized Chinese characters. www.chinese-tools.com/tools/ca…
•About the Chinese Characters from the Avatar wikia and wikipedia: "the characters can be translated to: 降世神通 - the divine medium who has descended upon the world (e.g. the Avatar)."
shenling 神靈 "gods; spirits, various deities"
