Season 3 Avatar fanart by ming85 Season 3 Avatar fanart by ming85
So far, the Best Season of the Best Show ever. XD
No words can describe my worship (just saw episode 310 and 311 and died a little) so it had to be expressed in fanart before I went mental.

The Gaang with costumes (and personal interpretations of - ) from the first half of season 3. Everybody looks 4 years older, (not on purpose) and Sokka has a really long head which I love : ).

I tried to avoid blue and tried a more original group composition than my previous fanart, less characters and asymmetrical, but couldn't resist the V-shape at the bottom. It just... works this way.

Tried to really push the dynamics here. Toph was a challenge, but now that pose is my fav, hehe. The animation of her moves really inspired me.

Based on these sketches i did a while ago, and this older fanart.



Photoshop CS1, wacom tablet.

Before I go on a long rant like I did in the other picture (I really don't have time for another ;P ), let me just say: WOW!

And: Katara is insanely hot here. I've always preferred her firenation outfit over the others, but this... holy moly. She looks so feminine and so poerful at the same time! Lookit those muscles.

Very. Very. Awesome.

This is incredible! Against advisement from dA, i seldom comment, but on this i HAD TO! Book 3 was by far my favorite in both wardrobe, character design, and action. You have successfully made me LOVE this work, when usually there aren't too many pieces i enjoy~
