‘Temae’ For Gallery Nucleus’ Legend of Korra Tribute Exhibition

As many already correctly guessed, this is an illustration of Raava in Wan’s teapot. I got the inspiration for this after seeing cleared and stained specimens. Especially the illuminated ones. I couldn’t help thinking Raava and Vaatu both look like skeletons and what a glowing skeleton inside a clear body made of light would look like. So here it is, a very elaborate tea ceremony.

If you’re in Los Angeles tomorrow Saturday, March 7th stop by for the opening of the Korra/Last Airbender show in Gallery Nucleus at 210 E. Main St. Alhamabra, CA. I’ll be there for the opening so feel free to say hi!

Spirits telling the Avatar not to give up.

I was making a gif for a different post when Yue’s quote suddenly sounded very familiar…

Aang: I’m not gonna make it. I failed. Roku?
Avatar Roku: You haven’t failed, Aang.
Aang: But everyone thinks I’m dead again. They think I’ve abandoned them and I’m losing this war. I’m letting the whole world down.
Roku: If anyone is to blame for the state of the world, it is me. I should have seen this war coming and prevented it. You inherited my problems, and my mistakes. But, I believe you are destined to redeem me and save the world.
Aang: I don’t know.
Princess Yue: You already saved the world, and you’ll save the world again. But, you can’t give up.
Aang: You’re right. I won’t give up.

Avatar Wan: I’m sorry, Raava. I failed to bring peace. Even with Vaatu locked away, darkness still surrounds humanity. There wasn’t enough time.
Raava: Don’t worry. We will be together for all of your lifetimes. And we will never give up.

Your picture of Shiro and Allura in the hammock is adorable. I also really like your take on Altean markings—it both is aesthetically pleasing/very graceful-looking and makes a lot of sense given the facial markings (seems about the right proportion of patterning by extrapolation).

Thank you so much, Nonny! I had drawn inspiration (not just from fans) but from Raava’s design from Legend of Korra! I’d hoped I’d tied everything together with the extra flicks on her hips and wrists to mirror the eye markings :)
