Two Sides - Katara by Blue-Ten Two Sides - Katara by Blue-Ten
3/20/2012 Major Edit: A huge thanks to AwesomeAltArt on Tumblr for posting the Two Sides series and sending so many followers my way *__*. It reminded me that I needed to update this pic. Made a bunch of changes including some fixes to Katara's hand/face and some adjustments to create a better range of color. Her skin is now closer to the proper tone. I'm not sure what happened the first time around; I'm pretty sure I grabbed the skin color right from a screenshot, but she ended up looking pale as death after all the lighting adjustments I made XD.

Waterbender, Bloodbender.

FINALLY :phew:.

I caught a little cold, so while staying home today I started on and finished Katara's illustration in the Two Sides series. It was fun, and surprisingly the angle didn't trouble me as much as I thought it would. The hands, though, were a pain -- and they still don't look quite right :XD:.

This concept might seem a bit morbid, I just realized, lol. But if you prefer, pretend the red water is a trick of the light... or grape juice. It's entirely metaphorical anyway :D.

Nice job! I love the details, especially the water/blood. Great job on the shading, lighting, pose and colouring.

katara was not happy when she was forced to use blood bending,in fact she considered it a pretty sinister form of bending and she got it banned...however i still love how you drew her.

Woah. It took me a moment staring at the image to figure out what the second "side" was supposed to be, but when it hit me... dang. The pretty picture suddenly got *real* creepy.
