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)."

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-12-20
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 )

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!

Really wonderful :) Both of your artworks on the Avatars look really beautiful and fitting to the series :) Looking forward to your Aang-piece! And you deserve the DD ;)

Great job as always - this is a great example of how art softwares don't define how your art will turn out. dCTb's work is amazing, and yet he uses GIMP! It's not necessary to have the latest and greatest technology to make a wonderful piece of work. Thanks for inspiring us to work harder and to not fixate on the little things like what kind of tablet or software. :)

P.S. the light tones and and more earthy colors look so well and pleasant with Korra, the almost pale tones are great for her bc it makes her look more delicate to the hard colored piece you did of Avatar Wan! Wonderful pieces both with similar themes but great contrast!!! ;)

Now I see Korra too, and I just gotta hand it to you and say...THESE ARE SIMPLE AWESOME!!!! GREAT STUFF THANK YOU!!!!
