My piece for Pixel Drip’s I’m the Avatar, Deal With It! art show coming up later this spring.
)GET IT it’s like an old SEP cover because the show’s all old-tymey, I’m so brilliant)
I love it! I grew up admiring Norman Rockwell’s art. Never thought I’d see an Avatar/Rockwell mash up, but it works somehow. Looking forward to this art show.
Aw geez, thanks! Had no idea you had seen this, completely flattered.
Gonna put a big “CREATOR APPROVED” stamp on it now,
Probably the last Korra related piece I’ll do for a while. I had a lot of fun (especially with the water and “earth”) although coloring it was super challenging. I’d like to make this and a few other pictures available for print. Once I do, I’ll post a journal, so if you’re interested in getting a print from me in the future, be on the look out!

降世神通 - the divine medium who has descended upon the world (e.g. the Avatar).”
