Kataang: Uplifted by Acaciathorn Kataang: Uplifted by Acaciathorn
My first (and sadly my only) Kataang week entry. The prompt was "Gravity"...so I figured I'd do the flip side, defying gravity. So here are Aang and Katara, taking a joyride-through-the-sky somewhere outside the Eastern Air Temple. I've had this pic in my imagination for a long time, and I'm glad I finally got to draw it.

I got the idea when I realized that I had never seen Katara drawn in airbender clothes before. I mean, she wears fire nation, water tribe, and earth kingdom clothes in the series, but we never see her in air nomad clothes. I don't even think I've seen any fanart of her in airbender garb. But now that she and Aang are an item, it seems logical that she might don airbender attire at some point.

And the result...she looks really cute! So here are Aang and Katara, maybe ages 17 and 15. This is dedicated to all my fellow Kataangers - we held strong in an endless SEA of screaming, foaming, melodrama-loving Zutarians...and we prevailed! ROA, ROA, FIGHT DA PO-WAH! [/end TTGL reference]

Amazing picture i love every part of it!

:bulletred: the background is beautifully made, the way the clouds are swift and sparkle nicely reflect on Katara and aang
:bulletorange: the design of air costumes are very original, the fold are neatly done and the garment match the air temple's colors and attractively include the air symbol, the long robes can also be proven to be aerodynamic
:bulletyellow: the shading and tinting a very accurate and katara's hair is uniquely draw and the the way her eye's glisten are magical
:bulletgreen: also the simple air temple in the background is marvelous

1 question... if they went through the clouds why are they not wet?

:judge: this is only my insight on the drawing, every artist has a different style and perspective!
What do you think?

To be honest, I don't particularly like the pairing of Kataang, but I do love this art.
