Apollo Aang - for ASN by Blue-Ten Apollo Aang - for ASN by Blue-Ten
I just got the OK from ASN to post this here on DA :D (lotta acronyms there :XD:).

Back in September I got a request to do a graphic for AvatarSpirit.Net. Needless to say, already being a big fan I nearly tripped over my own e-mail in enthusiastic acceptance :).

They wanted a picture of Aang in a spacesuit, standing next to an ASN flag. This was for the introduction of ASN's new screenshot database search, dubbed "Project Apollo" -- hence the moon-landing theme of the pic.

Fanartists, the database is an invaluable resource for all your Avatar reference needs. If you're looking for specific screenshots, you'll be able to find them in a snap with this tool :D.

My thanks goes out to ASN and Acastus for giving me the opportunity to draw something for them... and for all the pageviews/messages that resulted from their mentioning my DA gallery ;).

He should treat Yue with respect instead of proudly stomping on her.


...just kidding, Avatar Armstrong is cool! Nice work.

Aang would most definitely want to be an astronaut. Or a hippie. Or a jewelry maker. But mostly an Astronaut!

I saw this on the homepage of their website. :D

It's quite outstanding.

Would you mind telling me how you did the stars in the sky, please? I struggle with that a lot. >>

:iconblue-ten:
Blue-Ten Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks :D.

The stars were done by first setting up black layer behind Aang and the foreground there. Next, I used Filter>Add Noise... and gave it a high setting (around 75, I think; it's best to just make sure the 'noise' fills up a good portion of the layer), with 'Gaussian distribution.' After that, I went to Image>Adjustments>Brightness and Contrast... and set the brightness low and contrast high. This ends up creating a nice sharp star field. The stars will look softer when shrinking the image down when you're done; before I did so with this image, it just looked like a bunch of jagged, white pixels in the sky :XD:.

I'm sure you've heard this from everybody already-- but... THIS IS SOOOO AWESOME!!! BRILLIANT!

Bang your head on the Keyboard awesome-- or in other words-- BYHOTKA

And the idea of using the arrows as buckles for the suit? Where in the world did you get that idea?

BYHOTKA... sounds Russian, lol :XD:.

Anyway, thank you so much. I'm honored that you liked it, considering your artwork is very BYHOTKA :D.

I used this picture as reference: Apollo Spacesuit. The idea for the arrows just hit me when I looked at those buckles, which kinda look like arrows to begin with :).
