Orientalist Fire Nation - I by Anday
Orientalist Fire Nation - I

Orientalist Fire Nation 1/?

I don’t know why it took so long, but I just got on board this ship, WHERE THE HELL IS EVERYBODY??

I’m attempting to do a series of Fire Nation paintings inspired by Orientalist art (minus the creepy odalisk objectification aspects). My intent is to show court drama and the private lives of Fire Nation citizens, borrowing decorative elements from Orientalist paintings. 

And I start with Princess Azula because I have too many feelings still want her to be redeemed and show a more human side. Following the tv show, we only ever see glimpses (and very, very minimally) of these through her interactions with Ty Lee. 

I read a lot of post-recovery fics, so this is post-psychosis episode Azula reclining comfortably below Ty Lee’s eye level. Ah, it’s a moment of vulnerability :)

Old work from a jam sesh with buddies from school back in 2013. What it does is pretty gross, I know. Haha!
Recreational Sandsailing by Anday

Snuck this in despite all my work! Hehe. Sorry couldn’t think of taglines with a proper call-to-action anymore because I already spent all my energy on the artwork. I’m not a copywriter!!!

The original colors are on the right. Feels like I've been looking at it too long and I'm not sure I'm happy with it.

My sense of color needs more practice and I have a tendency to muddy the mid-value temperatures (you know what I mean if you have a keen eye; I had the same problem with my first Asami piece in which I muddied the pants), so I just desaturated it and turned it into a vintage ad. (I may not be the best technical artist but I find ways to entertain haha)


Remember that episode in Book 3? I’m thinking maybe Asami revisits the idea and with Varrick’s input, the sport becomes part of a desert tourist attraction. And since you need one airbender to move this thing, the Air Nation participates. A portion of the funds will go to their nation re-building :)

This commercial version is done catamaran style, as opposed to the makeshift one in 03x10 which is just a straightforward front sail. I’m sure Asami made it that way out of purely functional reasons that they just needed to get out of the desert. For recreation, the catamaran style is more aerodynamic and feels more dangerous and exciting as an extreme sport should be! :p Also, catamaran sailing just looks really cool in action. I replaced the rudders with wheels because a rudder is going to get stuck in the sand. They’re just for the roll-off and steering, but gravity from the downhill terrain plus airbending should do most of the work. A sky bison serves as spotter above.



Dying from work deadlines on a 2-week cram project. So it will be around two weeks before I get to post fan…I mean, personal art again. I have WIPs I can’t wait to finish :( 


Power Pair - Hangar Outtake by Anday
Power Pair - Hangar Outtake
Here's an outtake of my last artwork. Before I finished the main illustration, I suddenly thought of this humorously suggestive interaction and I just really wanted to sketch it out for laughs. It was good practice, as well, in terms of visual storytelling through subtleties in gesture, framing and body language. (I swear those little creative decisions can be so much harder than what the sketch actually looks!) 

Oh right, the mug — apart from the subtle come-on - is probably a souvenir from Varrick and Zhu Li’s wedding :)

world-building and visual storytelling are my thing

A lot of time passed and a lot of things happened. 

I never thought I'd get to a point where I could just about draw anything and make my imagined worlds come to life. I will be updating this thing with my recent work and proper portfolio. 

All my old artworks will be clumped into one stack. As a reminder that I was also once a beginner.
