Waterbending - Hula by Blue-Ten Waterbending - Hula by Blue-Ten
3/10/2011 Edit: Made a bunch of changes to this one. Added more contrast to the colors, fixed Katara's facial features a bit and adjusted the image to be poster-sized. You can see the old version here.

This is a birthday present for my sister: :iconlovely-whimsy:, who requested "ninja turtles or waterbenders" :B. I'm a big TMNT fan, but I haven't drawn them for years, so the choice was obvious XD.

It's an older-looking Katara using Hula to bend the water :D. Her stance is based loosely on the Hula pose called "ike" which looks like this [link]

One thing I would have loved to see in Avatar was a group of waterbenders based around Polynesian culture. It would fit really well :]. The concept for this picture is something I wanted to do for a while.

Haha, anyway, Happy B-day, sis!

Nice water effects! Though I can't help hearing the HAWAII 5-O theme music while looking at this (Not exactly something works well with the A:TLA world, I admit).
