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!

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"

This is by far the best-looking imitation of the art style used in Beginnings, at least that I've seen.

The entire images flows so gracefully, yet filled with power, just like the Avatar State :D

I just discovered your work courtesy of Reddit and can't wait to buy this, Korra and your eventual Aang print. They're drop-dead gorgeous. I've seen a lot of fan art in my time, but these are just... You should be proud.
