Model sheet commission of an unnamed Water Tribe Avatar from The Last Airbender series! She appears in a background shot showing all the past incarnations of the avatar, but she’s pretty far off in the distance so I had to invent a lot of details by going back to some source inspiration of Yupik and Inuit designs.
↳ get to know me:favorite team → team avatar (open in new tab for larger size!!) Sokka: “I just wanted to say: good effort out there today, Team Avatar.” Katara: “Enough with the Team Avatar stuff. No matter how many times you say it, it’s not gonna catch on!” Sokka: “How about the Boomerang Squad? See, it’s good cause it has Aang in it - Boomer-Aang!” (art credit)
one of my favorite things about a:tla is that everyone knows uncle iroh. everyone. the blind girl you just added to the gang? had tea with him once. that flower seller? yup. your ten-ton six-legged five-stomached flying bison? probably. that girl on the streets of ba sing se? he sent his nephew on a date with her. a whole tribe of thought-to-be-extinct sun warriors? nbd. your cranky waterbending master? they go way back. that dramatic deserter? your bro’s sword instructor? your 112 year old nuthouse friend? the next avatar 54 years later? sure
I can see your whole history in your eyes. You were born with nothing. So you’ve had to struggle and connive and claw your way to power. But true power, the divine right to rule, is something you’re born with. The fact is, they don’t know which one of us is going to be sitting on that throne and which of us is going to be bowing down. But I know, and you know. Well? You’ve beaten me at my own game. Don’t flatter yourself. You were never even a player.
