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.

And there is no good without evil.

Hmmm, so we should be evil, and hope that helps the good side grow stronger...  Actually did you know in ancient China the Yin and Yang represented light, dark, hot, cold, but it did not represent good and evil.  They thought of evil as an imbalance of Yin and Yang.  If you are too hot or too cold you could die, but balanced together you get warmth which is good.  This older view of Yin Yang makes more sense to me.  But I still liked the Story of the Legend of Korra, it rocks.

My theory was we are been born good and evil, just one side grow, if you know what I mean.

And yes, this original philosophy of Yin and Yang is much better and more logical

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. ♥
