*EDIT* Oh gosh, thank you so much for the DD on this!! It really means a lot to me! And again, I apologize for the lack of Sokka, but he unbalanced the picture so he had to go. XD

The public has spoken and you guys voted for me to do an Avatar: The Last Airbender fanart! :iconlawooplz: And I gotta say, this picture was a real pain in the butt. XD Took forever to figure out how I wanted to color it, especially since I kept changing the colors. Initially I was just going to do Aang, Toph, and Zuko, but then I decided I needed somebody to represent water... but I didn't want to draw Katara. >_< So I thought about putting Sokka in, but then I was like "No, I should put in Katara so it's all four benders and it's balanced and everything. *sigh*" So I bit the bullet and drew Katara, even though she's about my least favorite character in the show. Lol! But yeah, not much else to say about this one really. Just though it would be fun to redesign outfits for everyone and whatnot. XD So, I hope you enjoy it! ^^

P.S. Brownie points if you can name all the additional characters in this. XD

P.P.S. If I could be a bender, I would want to be an earth bender. :3 Best element by far... as well as the most practical. XD

P.P.P.S. Yes I am aware of the fact that the composition of this is similar to the Kingdom Hearts box covers, so no need to keep telling me. Didn't do it on purpose, but for the record, KH doesn't own the right to drawing characters situated on a mountain peak. Even though they did it awesomely. XD

I'm not a fan of Avatar, but this is amazing! I'm really enjoying all the details you put in the surrounding in this picture!

Well, some people like it and some don't. I had a friend who refused to watch because she couldn't get past how the eyes were drawn. XD

I guess I just never really tried it. I have nothing against it or stuff, it just doesn't interest me that much. I believe it's still one of the better series though.

All that doesn't change how cool the picture is though!

Well, if you ever feel up to giving it a try, it's worth a shot. I think it's by far one of the best animated series produced in a long time. It's a bit silly and childish at times, but it has a great story and wonderful character development. :nod:

I'll keep that in mind next time I got the possibility! Thank you for the tip! :)
