I've never seen Avatar. The cartoon or the movie. I can't really watch cartoons anymore (just too old) and I feel like a date-rape victim of M. Night's movies, but I know the cartoon is mega-popular. I sketched the picture out pretty quick and decided I'd try my hand at digital painting. Turns out you need to know how to paint traditionally first. So, I did my best, used some backgrounds and effects, and it turned out okay.
