Earth Kingdom Nouveau by WingsForDreams Earth Kingdom Nouveau by WingsForDreams
Hey, guys! So, I finally got to work on some of my own stuff today, which was great! And with the return of Legend of Korra, I'm so stoked to keep working on these!

Yeah, they're not so Nouveau anymore, but I'm just gonna roll with it xD This is the Earth Kingdom piece, fashioned after a lotus tile! I've been using Illustrator for work a lot lately, so it made making this so much smoother, since I'm better at the tools. I had honestly been putting off this project since I didn't like my initial draft for this one, and my Fire Nation one needs a huge revamp to fit the style of the others.

In the end, I'm pretty happy with this one! Not nearly as confusing as the Air Nomads, but definitely indicative of the Earth Kingdom refinement.

I'll add print/T-shirt stuff here tomorrow, but this will also be up on my RedBubble.

Who needs Nouveau? What you've got going on here really gives the feeling of the Earth Kingdom and I think that's what should count. I cannot get over the lotus shape, the rich colors used. You've really outdone yourself here, and it is something to be very proud of. ^_^ <3

Thanks so much, bro! I had been putting off the project since Fire Nation is being a pain to work with, and I didn't like my initial idears for Earth Kingdom, but it came out so well in the end, so I'm super happy with it :3

It's been a while since I've seen the others, but this is a welcome sight! Now it's Earth!

Yeah, I've been busy with IRL stuff and trades, so I was finally able to get back to this one! I'm glad you were excited for it! :heart:

Yes, it was worth the wait!

So pretty!  I love the repeating petal motif that comes through in different ways as you move deeper within the "blossom."

YAY! Thank you so much! The lotus tile is a big motif in and of itself in the show, so adding all the little accents and such was such a fun challenge in the end to make it look just right!

The lotus shape and the inner design are totally on-point. Like, wowwwww. :heart:
The only thing I'd change is the coloring. The brown bothers me a bit, but mostly I'd just want to see the Earth Kingdom symbols in a different color.
They are cool, and I don't want to see them get lost against the green.

I might be playing around with the brown later, but since I wanted to keep the accents in that light green [it seems to fit with that color best, show-wise], that limits my playing options. And I actually kind of like how the Earthbender symbol gets a little lost in the green. I love the symbol, and I still wanna play to see if I can make it pop more, but I like the subtlety to it, since it's not too obvious in the other ones either [in my opinion]. But thank you!! I always love hearing from you on these, as a friend, Avatar fan, and designer :3

True, subtlety can be good. I still find that specific brown just a bit.. off though. We can chat more later, I'm sure ;)
