Happy Avatar Day by Destron23 Happy Avatar Day by Destron23
As the title indicates, Happy Avatar Day! :D I made this in honour of the Book 2 premiere which is currently airing as I type this! Sadly since I live in Canada, I don't have access to Nick, so I'm REALLY hoping an HD link may show up at some point. OTL

Anyways, I chose to draw the first avatar, Avatar Wan because I think he'll be a really cool character. :) I also like the idea of making fanart of a character that you have no clue about. XD Drawn with him is his Animal familiar, Mula (Mulah?) the Deer Cat! I just love that design! It's a really good fusion in my opinion. :) I had a lot of fun drawing Mula! :D There's also some light spirits floating around! Hopefully these ones in particular have the potential to be in the real world (since the trailer seems to indicate so), otherwise I may have to get rid of them if the series indicates that they shouldn't be in a place like this with Wan. lol

Also, I downloaded Manga Studio 5, and it has so many good things going for it, including poseable models! :D There was a scene filler that sort of inspired the look of the tree in the background. It was exactly what I was going for though since I wanted it to look like a scroll in the background. :) Had lots of fun making all those tiny strokes. XD

Overall I'm super happy with this! I'm especially happy that I could complete it on time!

Here's some other Avatar art of mine! :D

On Avatar day Wan and Rava should be celebrated and honored because w/out them the world would be gone

Destron23 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

Hehe, I designed it to be sort of like a Chinese wall scroll (since the BGs associated with Wan in the material we've seen seem to suggest scroll like BGs).

Aw, thanks Lier, that means a lot to me! :D Hehe as for the choice of colours, I just followed their coulour schemes. XD

Yay fellow Canadian! :D Yeah it's a shame. I don't know if you're from Ontario or not, but YTV usually does get Avatar. It's just a shame they don't air it when the US does... OTL

Hehe, I found one, and it was HD too! :D I guess that means every week I'll be up until like 1 to see it all. XD

I live in Montreal ><
YTV doesn't exist anymore on my TV since about 4-5 years :nuu:!!
Or like we have to pay extra money to get it :grump:
We have it in french later on when it is translated on another channel but...
I kinda like the original better :iconhidingtrollfaceplz:

Ohh I haven't seen in yet!!!!!!

Ah, I see, but at least you know of it.

Yeah, I don't like that. :(

Yeah, I just wish we could see it on TV at the same time the US does.

Hehe, you won't find it on Google. Try ThePirateBay

This is probably one of my favorite pieces from you so far, well minus the Stigande stuff but that's subject matter lol jk. There is a lot of character in this piece. Didn't get to see the premier but I'll see it eventually.

Oh wow! Thanks! :D That really means a lot, especially since I didn't think anyone would put this ahead of Tenzin piece. XD It's so ironic because I rushed this too. lol And yeah, well no one would blame you for being biased to Stingade, especially since I'm biased towards the pics you've done of my OCs. :) Yeah, I think Wan in general really shows the attitude well. I'm actually going to see it right now! :D
