Avatar Jedi Council

Avatar/Star Wars fanart prize for Philip ( ~Confidenceman047 ) who was a winner of the 2011 Avatar Pumpkin Carving Contest! He wanted the four Avatars as lightsaber-wielding Jedi with a volcanic background, and I had so much fun drawing this. :heart:

Did a bunch of research for it at Wookieepedia haha, and together figured that the forms they might use would be: Korra - Shien (with a backwards grip like Ahsoka Tano) (ref), Aang - Soresu (pose ref), Roku - Niman (ref), and Kyoshi - Djem So, although I ended up using an Ataru stance (ref). Yes, I am telling you all of this. xD

I also stylized their lightsaber hilts to represent their home nations; a clearer view of it can be seen here.

What else..... Lots of references used for their clothing and stances, volcanoes, pinstripe decals, and the Avatars themselves. Textures for the background are brushes from the Gimp Paint Studio add-on, which is freaking amazing. :nod:

Overall, super happy with this. :aww:

Drawn in MyPaint, colored in GIMP. Took about 3 months.

Well done! This is super cool. I absolutely love all the design work on their lightsaber handles and the frame around the lower edge. Very nice.

At least Jedi are not OP like benders are.
Like to see one of them struggle with turning to the dark side.

Not only did you combine my two favorite franchises, you also went as far as to make unique lightsaber hilts for each Jedi Avatar. Faved for a job too excellent for words.

a combination of two things i love.

Aang's look and pose is the best.

you know red saber is evil wright?
musogato's avatar
Yup, that's why Roku's saber is orange. :) Or at least should be, I guess it could change depending on the monitor/screen settings.

The saber colors are so appropriate for their elements, of course, but Korra's is the best because she is the Avatar equivalent of Samuel L. Jackson. IMHO, anyway.
