Air Nomad Nouveau by WingsForDreams Air Nomad Nouveau by WingsForDreams
PHEW! Some habits die hard: go to a Starbucks, get my crunch time frappucino, and get cracking. I was able to knock this out today, since my air nomad design didn't need as much tweaking as my Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom ones. It's varied up quite a bit from my initial sketch, but I'm super happy with out it came out. Again, it's not really art nouveau anymore, but it's still inspired from it, so I'm going to keep that title for this series of designs.

This design is available now on RedBubble! Warning: the color seems to have muted for the t-shirts.

As it should be, since the show is largely derived from East Asian culture. Every piece in this design was derived from motifs within the show that represent this race of people. Thank-you for your words!

I definitely am! I have them sketched; just need to find time to fight them into a digital copy!

***STILL MY FAVORITE THING EVER***

Though I'm picky, and I can see places where you edited one shape, but not another (like the arrows, some are pointy, but others a bit more rounded). I would just keep an eye out for things like that, or make edits to similar shapes at the same time, so you don't forget to edit them later.

Otherwise..... LOVE IT :heart:

As for RedBubble, you may want to check how you saved out the design. Different file types handle color differently, or sometimes it might be a matter of saving it out CMYK vs RGB.

Yeah, a lot of that just came from the original blob swirls weren't exactly the same, so when I would move the shapes there, I had to adjust each of them individually a bit. I didn't realize how rounded some of the arrows look, though, and that can easily be fixed~

And yeah, I tried different file types. They only do sRGB [DUMB!], so that altered it a little, but not to the extent that it's showing up as :/

Yeah, that's super weird. I don't know a whole lot about RedBubble designs, but maybe they have a page on how to best set up your file? Sometimes they do that so you can get the best results.

Otherwise, I was also thinking how cool it would look to have this design with no color (transparent) where the orange is, put onto an orange tshirt. *does that make sense...*
But I figure they probs don't let you upload more than one design for the same shirt, and that wouldn't look right on other colored shirts.

Yeah, I fiddled with it before, but to no avail, so we'll see :/

And yeah, that would be an awesome idea! I might do something like that, because I can upload it as a different shirt, easily, and only select orange as an option. I may have to sit on that one... Thanks! :heart:

I like how this design incorporates the nomads tattoos from the Beginnings episodes as well as the more modern tattoos common to the atla and tlok universe. If I am not mistaken theres also a celtic triskele motif being used here, which I personally appreciate as someone with an interest in celtic culture.

Haha I can see where you'd see the triskele motif, but that overall shape to it was based off the symbol of the airbenders, which is in fact very similar to the triskele~ But I'm glad you picked up on the old nomads' tattoos! Basically when I make these, I have scribbled down a whole bunch of the motifs and then try to include them. Almost everything is inspired by or directly a motif from the corresponding nation/benders~

I'm not even a fan of Avatar (I've yet to watch it) but that is one cool design.  I love the balance of the orange and teal with the neutral grey to break things up.  It also has a nice sense of motion, like swirling winds.

It's such a great show, with so much depth in contrast to its hilarity, and so many real-world parallels. Definitely my favorite show of all time, and I'm so super happy with this piece. A lot of the other nations are relatively monochromatic, but the airbenders have that light blue/teal, and then orange for the monks, so it was fun working with the contrast! The whole design is actually littered with motifs from the show special to those benders, so it makes my design nerd and cartoon nerd happy xD
