Aang and Katara- Waterbending Lessons by twinfools Aang and Katara- Waterbending Lessons by twinfools
At N2U the hotel that the con was held in had an indoor pool. There was a water fountain-thingy that we decided to try to take waterbending photos near. We couldn't do much about the background (lol fire extinguisher) but it was really cool to get to use the pool area a little bit :)

Huge thanks to :iconhenrickson: for doing this shoot for us! Your photos are AMAZING!!!

Katara is :iconvandorwolf:

At least you have a second weapon if firebenders attack. (Meaning the extinguisher)

Awesome shot! I wouldn't have noticed the fire extinguisher it hadn't been mentioned, though.

wicked nice photo
adarkworldfantasy Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Excellent place to do the photo for this! The water from the fountain gave it the best finishing touches! :w00t: Well done!
Shiro-Yuuki Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
I've never seen anyone do Aang justice but you really managed to pull off a character that I've never seen done well. Great work

XD nice :3 !
Jankay Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
... this is awful. the setting is so wrong, (appartment building/motel?) katara is wearing so much makeup it's gross, the costumes look like total crap, and why is aang a flabby oldish dude? aang's supposed to be twelve. The rest of your gallery looks pretty decent, but aaahhhh it makes me want to cry that this got featured on deviantart.
Democo Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Student General Artist
Ouch.. Calm down, if you think that the most popular stuff of the day will be the best stuff of the day then you are just being naive. Leave it be and move on. :)
Quaduzi Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow you two look amazing and the water.... just perfect *o*

Should've put Katara more to right so she covers the fire extinguisher!

waterbending in a mall? really?
RyokoYuuki Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Oh man. I am still trying to finish this series... It's taking me forever because I have a hard time liking most of the main characters besides Toph and Sokka. >< None the less, I have buddies who have been asking me to cosplay this for years and I am currently working on Ty Lee since I've shipped TyZula before I knew what Avatar was ><

I really like the idea and direction of this photo. You as Aang is pretty awesome (kudos for shaving your head!) This may be weird to say... I would like to see less concentration and more of a distracted Aang as he's trying really hard to concentrate but he just can't because well it's Katara. I love Nova as Katara but I wanna see more SASS. GIRL WORK IT AND WHOOP HIM INTO A WATERBENDER! Other than that just do what you do and eff all the haters. =)
zivi77 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
the katara outfit looks decent, well done, although the layers of it are faked and drawn on - a huge issue drawing away from the picture is that there is something inherently wrong with your upper body/breast - did you photoshop it? if so then please redo it or leave it the whole area just in skin color because that really distracts from your otherwise decent costume - the fabric chosen seems a bit iffy but otherwise its ok

about the background - it really ruins the whole thing, you can actually photoshop the whole background out and put in a new one without looking terrible at all or could have asked the hotel management if they would have been okay with you guys putting up white cloth walls for the shooting for a short period , normally if you ask nicely and explain what you wanna do - i found that most people are actually quite helpful and responsive about such things, maybe give it a shot

the whole thing comes a bit harsh, specially for deviantart standards where nothing else usually is expected but blind praise - but i think you can grow on valid critizism
RyokoYuuki Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
You're not really critiquing if any thing you're nitpicking because it isn't to your standards and isn't Photoshopped. Chill man. This is a shoot at a con, it's not a location shoot. Because of the lighting and how the camera is angled you can see his scar on his chest (It's not shopped) and it's not something that he can help.

Yes you can Photoshop the shit out of your photos so the look perfect every single time, but after a while that gets old and it really fails to bring out the individuality of the person(s) as well as the experience of the con.

I think if they really wanted a shopped picture, wouldn't they just put that up instead of this one?
zivi77 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
see now we are getting somewhere - i never asked for photoshopping, its a lazy excuse - and you tell me its a chest scar, which of course, nobody can know without investigating the model in question - i critiqued the picture itself for its background (which is very valid because it is highly distracting), pointed out the errors/flaws of the costumes --- if you make a picture and want it to be seen by random strangers without any real commentary, post it on facebook or godknowswhere, on deviantART you should expect some pushback, and the picture is clearly not perfect nor unimprovable, i stated very much so that i think the artists can improve
