Probably the last Korra related piece I’ll do for a while. I had a lot of fun (especially with the water and “earth”) although coloring it was super challenging. I’d like to make this and a few other pictures available for print. Once I do, I’ll post a journal, so if you’re interested in getting a print from me in the future, be on the look out!

•Title is from the amazing song, “Spiritual State” by Nujabes feat Uyama Hiroto [link] I could listen to that song on loop forever.
•photo of clouds that I took is used in the background
•Calligraphy site used for generating stylized Chinese characters which I traced over. [link]
•About the chinese characters from the Avatar wikia: “the characters can be translated to:
降世神通 - the divine medium who has descended upon the world (e.g. the Avatar).”
Only the Avatar can master all four elements and bring balance to the world.
Aang learned his native element, air, from a friend of the previous avatar(Gyatso) then his final element, fire, from a descendant of the previous avatar(Zuko, great-grandson). Korra learned her native element, water, from a friend of the previous avatar(Katara) and then her final element from a descendant of the previous avatar(Tenzin, son). So basically, avatars learning their native element from a friend of the last avatar and their final from a descendant.
