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!

•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”


I vividly remember a few moments from when I was growing up that - as corny as it sounds, felt like they’d altered my life a little bit. One was when I was six years old and I watched The Little Mermaid for the first time and the other: Sailor Moon when I was 13. I can’t even describe how much they blew my young mind and I’m sure they’re some of the biggest influences that nudged me into art. 

Both have a certain reverence with me and as much as I drew them growing up neither of them are something I’ve painted now that I’m all grown up, there’s definitely a feeling that whatever I paint won’t do justice to it but; I adored Sailor Moon from the very first second I saw it on tv. I would wake up at the crack of dawn before school to watch this and then race home again afterwards to watch the repeat. I think it’s about time I paid homage to one of my favourite anime’s ever; Sailor Moon!
I am also totally effing stoked for the reboot coming soon!

I’m speaking for myself only, of course.

Decided to work more on this unfinished painting done back in September :)

All the texture in this is such a nice touch to an already great piece of work!
