Yue as international student and destroyer of Kyoshi warriors’ OTP.
I don’t hate Yue, really. She’s great and really funny to draw, but, guys, Suki is Suki. u.u

‘bout time, right? Commission for littlelionheartedavatar. Hope you feel better, doll.
More ‘early’ Worldbending concepts.
This was when LOK was announced and we learned that Aang had a son. Nenajo (or just ‘Jo’, pictured here) was helping to rehabilitate Aang on Hou Tian, at the time. The arc has long since been scrapped, but were it to continue, I figured Jo would have been somewhat of a mentor to Tenzin, as well.
I don’t know if you’ve heard of Worldbending, but it was an idea started by a woman on deviantart that featured benders and Avatars from cultures inspired by Europe, Africa, India, and the Americas, and also, somewhat, as a response to Avatar’s hiatus as well as some disappointment over Korra’s writing.
It has a tumblrpage , but this kind of a thing may not be what they’re looking for.
I had an idea that featured the Chancellor’s daughter from a Metalbending nation inspired by Germany and England setting out on a voyage with her father to discover new lands when they come into contact with the Eastern part of the world.
Eventually it is revealed that Lieseta is the newest incarnation of the Western Avatar, the previous one being a bloodthirsty Mesoamerican warlord…he died while still holding grudges, so his spirit is closer to the physical world than most Avatars should be, and ends up breaking some of the big laws of the Spirit World by directly possessing the current Avatar.
After he learns this, the Chancellor turns on his own daughter and attempts to channel Huazil through her to summon the Great Feathered Serpent and use its power over lightning to conquer the East.
Or, failing that, he attempts to create his own serpent and ends up building a giant mechanical doppelganger, not sure which would be more crazy.
Another anon suggested that in the world’s super ancient past there were dinosaurs that could bend, but that would be even crazier.
From the top, the characters are:
Lieseta von Strauss - Age: 16-18 - Nationality: Metallic Commonwealth - Element - Metal
Huazil - Age in spirit form: 25-27 - Nationality: Thunder Empire - Element- Lightning
Caiern - Age in spirit form: 47-49 - Nationality: Wood Highlands
Element - Wood (grass and plants, not rocks and soil)
Anjali - Age in spirit form: 36-38 - Nationality: Burna - Element - Fire
Nahjet - Age in spirit form: 19-21 - Nationality: - River Dynasty - Element - Water
All the art was done by some amazing people in /co/’s OC drawthreads…if any of them find this post I’ll be sure to link to their accounts.
It’s a pugpanda
I am currently Interning on a feature film but I am getting into the groove.
is there any possibility of an ancient mid-eastern culture in there? I've seen a persian (islamic persia) but what about Sumer? or Hittite, or even ancient Israel?... also, what about Mycenean Greece and the Etruscans?
Yes, yes and yes. Those larger cultures would definitely have parallels in the earth/avatar crossover. The middle east and Mediterranean have such a variety of culture and relation to the elements. lots of sailors and lots of arid desert and lush earth.
I think you should employ some of ancient europes more forggotten tribes and practices. Such as pagans and Steppe herders in the eastern and highland district. I know its european but, at least its away from this glorified mess of modern european culture, no?
honestly it’s a good idea. Can we get some art submissions of this?
I can see the parallels. I think something that both of those cultures mentioned have something very unique to them, their environment/terrain. That would make for interesting bending.
