The Waterbender by depingo The Waterbender by depingo
Wow! I'm sorry, but with all the attention this piece got, I just can't thank every single one of you individually. So...

Thank you so much for all the :+fav:s and comments on this picture, everyone! :heart:


---

While I found her pretty annoying in the series, Katara's waterbending always fascinated me - I have so many random doodles of her, it's ridiculous.

So finally here's a finished painting of Katara in her fire nation clothes with a few design liberties. Let's just say she's a little older in this one and trying a new style ;)

Hope you like :)

Gorgeous! I wish they had made her look this amazing in the series! I think they "kiddified" her a bit too much.
