Starting November 12, the Avatar Secret Santa will be open to all benders and non-benders alike. Come help us spread some spirit across the four nations as fellow fans of the Avatar: the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra join together in celebration of the upcoming holiday season.
Artists, video makers, graphic designers, writers, and all others are welcome to participate! Please spread the word and let’s get together for the holidays!
I know it’s little early but there’s going to be an Avatar Fandom Secret Santa happening (so both LoK and A:tLA fans) and Sign-Ups will be starting this Monday over at avatarsecretsanta.
The blog will be unlocked on Monday as well.
Check it out then and I hope you guys will participate! <33
Home is where the heart is and all that jazz hehe
Felt like drawing Kataang reuniting in the Spirit World and if I had more patience for this drawing I would’ve included Katara reuniting with the rest of her family but I don’t so you got her meeting Aang first
Air Bending: Fighting
All Bending Arts in ATLA contain defensive and offensive moves:
When Aang fights with Hi De, On Ji’s boyfriend, he defends himself using Ba Gua Zhang i.e. Wu Dang style martial arts. This style is famous for its ‘circle walking’ i.e. avoiding the opponents strikes by staying behind their back. Aang demonstrates it rather well in the gifs.
The Bending Arts: Airbending
Airbending is based on Ba Gua Zhang
Bāguàzhǎng is one of the three main Chinese martial arts of the Wudang school, the other two being Taijiquan and Xingyiquan. It is more broadly grouped as an internal practice (or neijia gong). Bāguà zhǎng literally means “eight trigram palm,” referring to the trigrams of the Yijing (I Ching), one of the canons of Taoism.
Look, it’s the creators talking:
“Still working, Chief Bei Fong?”
“Interrupt me again and I’ll handcuff you, meathead.”
“That a promise?”
“….I’ll see you later tonight, Councilman Sokka.”
Have some more Tokka doodles because I JUST CAN’T STOP.
No I did not momentarily forget that Toph was blind and have her read a paper. NOPE. DIDN’T HAPPEN. THAT’S LIKE A METAL SHEET SHE’S HOLDING OR SOMETHING. IDK.
