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!

“Cosmic State”

A very late upload. Ive been out of tumblr for a while.

I made this during that horrid week when news broke out that Nick was taking LoK off the air. I understand that things got a little brutal but damn it broke my heart what they did.

I thought that Korra’s spirit alone could become the spiritual titan, what more if combined with Raava. (/*O*\)


Korra:  Raava, I missed you. Where have you been?
Raava: I have always been inside of you.


if you’re talking to a cute boy and he starts to leave scream “NO. IF YOU LEAVE NOW, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GO INTO THE AVATAR STATE AT ALL!” i have used this several times and i can confirm that it works 100% of the time.


Waterbending, one of the four elemental bending arts, is the hydrokinetic ability to control water in all of its various forms. Water is the element of change. The moon is the source of power in waterbending, and the original waterbenders learned to bend by observing how the moon pushed and pulled the tides. The Water Tribes are the only people who did not learn bending from an animal, though the Moon and Ocean Spirits took the form of koi fish in the mortal world near the beginning of the Avatar World.
