Water Tribe Nouveau by WingsForDreams Water Tribe Nouveau by WingsForDreams
Hey guys! So, my Avatar Nouveau project has taken a different turn, and I'm redoing the ones I've already done to match the four nations' symbols and patterns over Nouveau styled patterns. In the end, I really like this redesign I've done, and it's just the first of the four in the series! Also, working with vectors again makes me smile~

Love the waves in the smaller water tribe symbols within the crescent.~~~~~~

It kind of bothers me that the largest oval (that contains all the small moon phases) isn't circular. It makes things look squashed, even though they really aren't.
At the same time, the largest oval (and it's crescent) mimic the crescent and gibbous phases, so the "squashed" look makes sense. But then going off that, the gibbous/crescent phases are nearly circular, but not quite. It throws me off a bit.

Anyway, this is just me being nitty-gritty.
Because I totally still love this. :D

I see what you mean about the oval, and it might be something I revisit when I go back to work with the colors a bit more~ But I appreciate the comments! Haha you know what you're doing in Illustrator [clearly!], so I like the feedback from my amazing, super-duper fabulous friend :3

Good! I'm glad you appreciate feedback. I do as well, but some people don't so much.
I don't often have a whole lot to say on your other works, since I'm not a writer or painter, but I try to give constructive critique when I can!

Fire is on it's way, don't you worry! 8D

If I could figure out how my brain works, life would be so much easier hahaha xD Honestly, for stuff like this, I sketch my ideas out in my sketchbook beforehand, and even before that, I've gone through the show to find common designs and motifs for each nation. After that, it's just a matter of figuring out what symbols should be most prominent, what overall shape would work to link the four designs together, and then filling in that shape with the motifs in symmetrical and asymmetrical ways.

...And then everything changes when the Fire Nation attacks... I mean, when I try to recreate it digitally xD
