It's time for my yearly fanart! This time I'm re-imagining a set of fan-arts I created for Avatar: The Last Airbender about 6 years ago now. It was also an opportunity to see my artistic development over the past 6 years or so. Crazy!
For me, The Southern air temple needed to sit within a shroud of mystery and seclusion. When designing the landscape I wanted tall mountains that would act as a shield and cover for the temple. Scattered around the temple is tall and unpassable terrain inspired by the Huangshan mountains.
