The Last Airbender by Blue-Ten The Last Airbender by Blue-Ten
Based on this. More info and images can be found here.

I like how they added some articulation to his tattoos, and how they toned the colors down, but kept the basic Airbender scheme. It definitely makes it more suitable for live-action without straying too far from the cartoon. Also, they got a kid who actually does look a lot like Aang o_O.

I gotta say, I didn't know what to think about the Avatar movie(s) at first. But the recent shots of the characters they released changed my mind a bit. I'm definitely not getting a "Dragonball Evolution" vibe from it *shudders*. It seems closer to films like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, visually (which is awesome).

This gives me hope that they'll take the source material as seriously as they have the presentation.

Basically, I've gone from skeptical to cautiously optimistic :XD:. Don't let us down, Mr. Shyamalan :|

Yes, the movie was terrible :P

I just wanted to say that the work here is good, and I wanna favorite it, but I cant. Because that movie is a blight on the franchise. >.>

good artwork tho!

Oh my god, that description made me day. XD

I haven't seen the movie, but I know how horrible it was. Though, the changes to Aang's attire are nice.

This is even better than the movie.

Oh, please, this picture is nice but dont even remind me of the movie..

This image alone is better than the whole movie :P

movie, well not so great i dont hate it but it could of done much better in my prospective. oh by way great art it dose look like aang.

Half of us do agree that the movie did SUCK and that the bending was the worst part of it. HOWEVER, the theme of the movie did stay with the original theme of the cartoon and showed scraps of the show into the movie.

  In this drawing, everything looks great from the ground up. The pose goes great with the theme and the details on  Aang's tattoo is intricate, making this person seem like a true monk. Overall this drawing is excellent!Nod

I actually liked the design that they did for Aang. I understand that some changes to his outfit had to be made, and I love how they changed his arrow tattoo a bit and made it more intricate. The movie was terrible, but Aang's design was pretty good.

Worst movie, great art

oh yeah, my friend's 6 year old little brother looks like aang and probably could act better than Ringer
Crystalgirl227 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
i kinda liked the movie. yeah,they coulda done better... but hey, it was fine to me.
Sobrancelia Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015
'fine' is just not enough! Whith such great source material they could have made something fantastic! Most of us were expecting a new "Lord of the Rings", Game-of-Thrones-styled and with bending! But we got a mostly half-assed kids film.   :(
Crystalgirl227 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I never seen Lord of the rings so, IDK what that's like. And it's meant to be a kids film.
Sobrancelia Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2015
Well it should have been an all ages movie. Like "How to train your Dragon" and the original show. Most things targeted just towards children aren't taken seriously and that's just what happened.

Your description had me rollin. Because I was thinking the same thing before I saw it. And once I saw it I wanted my money back. lol! The best thing about that movie were the graphics.

This Picture is nice!
grettullka Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I like it :) Maybe the movie wasn't like the cartoon (of course) BUT it's difficult to make a movie, which could be very good, when there's so much fantasy and the cartoon is so loved :) So we have to be happy that there is a movie and that this cartoon is soooo popular ;) In conclusion, your painting is great! :D
tazaethestormwolf Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
i personally think they should have just cleared up some things from the show like zukos mother, toph, aang and katara
grettullka Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
ye, me too :)
zodiacbunnyrabbit Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012  Student General Artist
Absolutely, they barely got ANYTHING right!:nod:
MightyLemonade Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, the movie was awful. Get over it, this wasn't even inspired from the movie. It's the anime
pedroIV Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
"The Effects Were Decent" overall the movie just sucked.
BubblyEllie Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
i thought the movie was a little too serious compared to the series, i used to love the series! (still do, but i don't get the channel anymore:()
