This song was my spirit guide through the creation process: [link]
Now, I won't say you should click it and listen to it. But I will say if you don't, I'll massacre you.
After too long, I finally unveil the second redesign(or maybe first since I didn't really change much for Korra. Then again the folder icon is supposed to be Aang so maybe we're back onto second. You know what? Fuck it. We're on third.) for the Avatar: Black Future series. What started off as a CoD: Black Ops 2 zombies sort of tribute is now a modern/semi futuristic take on The Last Airbender. Older characters, meaner surroundings and lots of metal. I can honestly say that despite the background being a quick screen grab from Garry's Mod, I worked harder on this than any other digital painting I've done. I guess the main inspiration behind her look wa Jill Valentine's BSAA gear from RE5.
Aang is next up on the list then I might take a shot at Zuko again(damn Dell and their shitty ass computers).
Photoshop for Azula herself and Garry's Mod only for the background
addendum: made some changes, added smoke.
