Spiritual State by dCTb Spiritual State by dCTb
Probably the last Korra related piece I'll do for a while. I had a lot of fun (especially with the water and "earth") although coloring it was super challenging.

Legend of Korra © Bryan Konietzko & Michael Dante DiMartino
Artwork © dCTb
All work done in GIMP
•Style inspired by kidchan
•Title is from the amazing song, "Spiritual State" by Nujabes feat Uyama Hiroto… I could listen to that song on loop forever.
•photo of clouds that I took is used in the background
•Calligraphy site used for generating stylized Chinese characters which I traced over.…
•About the chinese characters from the Avatar wikia: "the characters can be translated to:
降世神通 - the divine medium who has descended upon the world (e.g. the Avatar)."

Spiritual State by *dCTb A very epic Legend of Korra artwork! This artwork really makes her look powerful and awesome. Well done ( Suggested by Ginryuzaki and Featured by Ry-Spirit )

Possibly the most beautiful Korra pic I've seen. Love the stylized elements.

I always did wonder if there was ever going to be a follow up to this with Aang? It's stunning

This is awesome, I have always thought of Korra as a hotheaded power bender but here she's very graceful and calm.

Wonderful! A well deserved Daily Deviation.  I love the style of this and its companion piece.  Good to hear you were inspired to do a third, even though you had difficulties with these two.  I do have some bad news though.  I found your work through, but not under your name.  This piece and its companion have obviously been edited to crop out your watermark and signature, so I set out to find who the true artist was.  I thought I'd let you know, because I'd hate to think of someone else making money off of your talent and creativity.  Here's the link:… .  I was sorry to find stolen art on redbubble, which is usually a pretty great site, but I'm glad I found you because your work is great!
