Wow! I'm sorry, but with all the attention this piece got, I just can't thank every single one of you individually. So...

Thank you so much for all the :+fav:s and comments on this picture, everyone! :heart:


While I found her pretty annoying in the series, Katara's waterbending always fascinated me - I have so many random doodles of her, it's ridiculous.

So finally here's a finished painting of Katara in her fire nation clothes with a few design liberties. Let's just say she's a little older in this one and trying a new style ;)

Hope you like :)

This is gorgeously detailed art. The moving water and the background give that great smoldering incognito Fire Nation feel. Kartara definitely has a darker skin tone though.
