The Herbalist by Acaciathorn The Herbalist by Acaciathorn
Nima, a young waterbender healer from the Avatar campaign I'm running. She's a cheerful, enthusiastic scholar studying at an herbalist institute in the Earth Kingdom. She suffers from deeply internalized misogyny, and her desire to conform to the patriarchal standards set by her culture interferes with her ability to pursue her true passions. She will have to make a choice about whether or not to defy the expectations laid out by her parents and her tribe.

I love the light here, It's very sunny, but everything is so softly bright, like a spring breeze. Perfect scene for a herbalist :>

Oh my gosh I love this so much! The leafs + flowers and the dappled lighting looks so peaceful and her eyelashes are to die for.

Never go home, Nima. No one can love you more than the warm desert sands will, not even your parents.
