As many around here I'm also a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

One of the things I have frequently wondered about this show is “what would the characters look if they were actual people instead of cartoon”, so I decided to paint some of them as I imagine they would look like. This is my take on Mai.

This was all done on Photoshop. I painted everything, with the exception of the pattern texture of her clothes (you know, the little flowery drawings) and some of the background textures; those I got from [link] .

WOW!

It's so realistic, and she looks just how I picture her in real life. My only suggestions are that you make the purple darker, and tone down the brightness in the red. Otherwise, it's perfect!

She looks like the future Fire Nation Queen. No wonder Zuko is crazy about her.
