Avatar State and Spiritual State by dCTb

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!

Artwork © dCTb
All work done in GIMP
•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).”
shenling 神靈 “gods; spirits, various deities”

The part where Aang’s theme quietly transitions into Korra’s still breaks me.

I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, so no new cool art to show, not even a 10-minute Korra (which was actually planned as a 5-minute Korra, but took me 10 minutes, and looking at it now, I should’ve spent an extra 0.5 to lower her left pigtail thingy into the correct perspective, and maybe I will sometime). But there are plenty of these nifty, giant decals around the studio to share with you! This one is based on a cool piece of Pro-bending concept art Joaquim drew in the early development days on Korra. The SpongeBob crew gets to pass this one on their way to and from the bathroom.

My OTP, everyone! 

Dear Korra,
Please dump Mako and be with Asami already. I will brew you a love potion of rainbows and sunsets that makes true lovers sprout wings and fly to a magical castle in the sky where you’ll get married and eat clouds with spoons and use stars as ice cubes in your moonlight punch for ever and ever and EVER! 

That is all.  :)))
0.5 mech pencil on sketchpad

You know the thing about OTP&#8217;s is that they&#8217;re still canon even if canon proves otherwise.
I&#8217;ve learned that from shipping wars. As long as you don&#8217;t attack others (Mako doesn&#8217;t count. He&#8217;s a jerk) (by others I mean other fans who oppose your ship).
Sorry, rambling here.
