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.…
•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"

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.

I just bought this print and the spiritual state. Hoping you make one of Aang to complete the trio. Great job!

This is some of the best avatar art I've ever seen in my entire life. Easily in my top 10.
