Avatar critters by Zenity Avatar critters by Zenity
I needed to just get out some art for myself, and I've been on a ridiculously huge Avatar kick lately. SO I drew some avatar world creatures with watercolors.

At first I kept sketching and erasing various Wan Shi Tongs or Shirshus, but then I was like "fuck this I'm just gonna put paint down on paper" and it was so relaxing and rewarding. Not that these are any good, but I needed it. Just to create and make strokes without even planning or thinking about it.

I'm not sure Wan Shi Tong would consider the term "critter" as a compliment. xD

Been re-watching Avatar: The Last Airbender and some of Avatar: Legend of Korra lately. So I had to see what kind of art I could find! :la:

That is a good point! It's probably good that I don't live near the desert.

They were in a later book 3 episode, I forget the title but it's the one where Aang and Zuko go to meet the last dragons and learn about firebending. These anteaters licked all the sticky stuff off of them!

Haaa :D I love all the creatures in the Avatar world too. I noticed these guys right away because they look a lot like giant anteaters, which is my favorite animal!

Awesome! And Nyla is part anteater, obviously, too! Maybe they're related!

Ah! These are so cool! :'D I like the Axolotl thingy the most. <3 It's so cute. ;3; <3

I think you should paint a bit more like this! You seem to enjoy the freedom and they all turned out good!
