Katara - Hope by DaveBaldwin3D Katara - Hope by DaveBaldwin3D
Been a while since I've made one of these bad boys. School's been getting pretty dang heavy this semester, granted it's always heavy but I've not been able to make more of these. Have not been feeling 100% well either. Only now really feeling better.

What's there to say about Katara? Love her or hate her she's as complex as any of the characters in the show and she's often time the glue that held the main characters together when things got rough. When she placed herself against or away from her teammates things got heavy.

Art is mine.

Katara and all characters related to Avatar The Last Airbender belong to Viacom/Nickelodeon

EDIT: Wow, 1000 views in less than 24 hours. This has outgrossed my original Korra image so far. Remember to watch me if you like my stuff. That'll inspire me to try and do more of these and improve my craft. Thank you all, I appreciate the love.

Please save it in PNG format so it's not such a poor quality. :)

I did save it as a PNG.

I really need to play around with how I should save these bad boys more though. The quality of the images that end up here are rarely as good as I want them to turn out. Some of it comes from the rather large Photoshop canvas I tend to use.

You should learn how to set Japanese as your font (it's easy and fast to change back). That way you can edit the kanji no problem. :) Saves looking for poor quality pictures of kanji. <3

Maybe,we'll see what happens. Been thinking of actually drawing the Kanji myself using reference and my tablet.

It really doesn't work that well to just "draw" them. Take it from someone who uses kanji every day at school: it sounds better than what actually happens. :/ You can't actually just up and draw calligraphy like you would with a brush, it's severely different.

Exactly. But when I actually don't understand Kanji or the Japanese language at all, all options to make it look nice aren't that great.

And by all logic I should not even be using kanji.

Actually, it's fine.
You go to google translate for simple kanji like "hope". Not hard, actually, I did it long before I studied Japanese. :)

Hmm, The overall quality seems to be killed by the Kanji doesn't it? I mean I started making the characters to size on the actual canvas a few pieces ago so I would not have to lose quality via re-sizing but I have not put the same mind set to the kanji... Will have to investigate further...
