Katara: Water Bending Master by justcallmefaye Katara: Water Bending Master by justcallmefaye
Because Katara is more than badass enough to deserve her own tribute, free of things like shipping that only serve to cloud and confuse her Pure Awesome. Seriously, what with Zutara and Jetara and Kataang, I forgot how much I loved Katara, in and of herself, without getting her name contorted in some weird amalgamation. (Although, really, it's no wonder she's a fandom bicycle...I mean, c'mon, she's just that fantastic.)

So here's to you, Katara. :worship:

No bashing of her will be tolerated in any comments. If you don't like her, don't hang around long enough to tell me.

My first attempt at digital painting. Hopefully it turned out okay... ^^; I like it, in any event! Especially the fang fasteners on her boots, haha. And if it weren't obvious, she's older here. Older and MOAR BADASS THAN EVAH, in my opinion. But I'm the artist, so let's face it, I'm biased. :D

I wish they made her less emotional. But, she does make up for it.

well, i was going for older and in a different outfit and in my style, not theirs, so...she isn't supposed to look quite exactly the same, i guess.

it was really fun to do, and it was nice to put Katara back in proper Water Tribe get-up again. she so neglects her parka in the series...

Very awesome. Love the hair and the outfit, Dark blue really looks good on her. Also love the intensity in the picture, she really looks like she's running forward at full speed!

However her left foot (the one raised in the air) looks a little off to me--we're looking at her sidelong, so we should be able to see more of it than just the heel. Unless she's turning really hard, then I guess it would make more sense, but it looks just a tad awkward this way.

Other than that, great artwork! I'll be sure to look up your other deviations as well! :)

well, she is supposed to be turning really hard (as further evidenced by the snow she's kicking up as she plants her right foot), but i wouldn't be surprised if this is littered with anatomical errors. i very rarely draw anyone in poses that even remotely approach "dynamic", so i'm sure there's plenty of room for improvement. i appreciate the comment, though, and i'm glad you like the picture! :)

for sure--I always figured she only had one during the show because they never had the time/money to get another one.

i like it.. Alot! i just saw the whole avatar show on 4 days ^^; .. and i felt devastated when the show ended, even tho i liked the endning :) .. But i really like everything about this.. The coloring is good, her facial expression, i just dont understand what's going on with the water in her fists? :D.. oh well, she probably learned a new trick while getting older ;) .. Well 5/5 for the pic ^^
