Are you pretty stoked for book two? 'Cause I'm going completely nuts just waiting for the release! It's barely even a month away but still!
DESNA IS A GUY!?? Seriously, I thought they were female twins! Looks like I'm just like Bolin then..
Right, now to the art. The research for this piece was pretty tough especially since the trailer only showed a little of them and the new season hasn't even aired yet. Still I wanted to do a piece on the twins because it would challenge me to show the subtle differences in them.
After finding out that Desna is male, I changed the background to reflect that and now it's quite like a ying-yang symbol. Ying is the black portion which represents the female in addition to other qualities (like the moon). Yang is the white portion and represents the male in addition to other qualities (like the sun). I used the ying-yang theme background to further emphasize the differences between Desna and Eska, especially since the former is male and the latter is female.
The background design came from the Book Two : Spirits Trailer. I thought the design was great and decided to add it to the piece.
Oh and Desna is on the right (white background) and Eska is on the left (black background), you know, just in case you're still confused.
So there you go! Hope you like!
