Rolling Vaatu And Raava by Jeffrey-Scott Rolling Vaatu And Raava by Jeffrey-Scott
I saw something amazing, it was the best episode of any show this year so far (2013).  I loved it so much I had to do this artwork inspired by it.  It was the latest "The Legend of Korra" episode, where it explains where the Avatar comes from.  That's right, the same Avatar as in "Avatar: The Last Airbender".  This artwork is not really much of a spoiler as to what happens.  But this is a drawing of Wan when he first meets Raava and Vaatu.  There is a scene where they are rolling around together, revealing the spirits' true identities as Yin and Yang.  I put the words Yin and Yang at the top in ancient Chinese Seal Script.  10,000 years before Aang and Korra, there was no Avatar....  It is such a rich history the writers of the show came up with, it was awesome to see.

Okay, I was thinking about getting a tattoo like this when the time comes and yours came up and can I please use it? Pretty please? I wanted to do something Yin and Yang style with Raava and Vaatu and.. Omg. I'm really stunned. I'll even give you credit if I get it. ♥

That is fine, though I would really think about it first before doing something so permanent. But if you ever do decide, I am not against you using this particular artwork for anything, as long as you give me credit.

Vaatu: Raava, if ur sewing skills weren't so horrible, WE WOULDN'T BE SEWN TOGETHER IN A GIANT BALL!!!!
Raava: SHUT UP!! YOU'RE THE ONE WHO KEPT WEAVING AROUND IN FRONT ME!!! IF YOU HADN'T DONE THAT, THEN THE NEEDLE WOULDN'T HAVE RAPPED US UP!!!!
Wan: Errrrr....

LOL! Yes they do look sewn together.  Although I was attempting to show the blur of the struggle between them, and the spin causing those marks. Hmmm.  Anyways, did you know that in the show when Wan first sees them they are rolling around together between the hills just like this, revealing their true identity as the Yin and Yang.

Yeah! Me and my sisters follow the show closely, and only watch it when we're all there so, I'm probably a little behind, but I totally know what you're talking about!
