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!

•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)."

I found this picture a few years ago, and I've kept it as my desktop background, even after changing computers a number of times. I always get it again because it is a flawless desktop background.
I adore this and bought prints of both this one and Korra to prove it. Still waiting for that final piece of the puzzle (Aang) to complete the trio. Would love to grab that as a print, too!
