Kataang - Allow Me... COLORED by TiuanaRui Kataang - Allow Me... COLORED by TiuanaRui
Colored verision of :iconkataang11: 's recent request : :thumb180635605:

Anyways, the lighting of the whole picture is overdone, but everything else is okay!

*UPDATE: I redid the lighting so you guys won't go blind! That answers your "What the hell why you gotta change it?!" question, right?


Backstory? Um, here we go! Katara accidently drops the groceries on the floor. Aang, lookin' all cool, came to her aid and helped the groceries, and said 'Allow me...' She got a handfull of her stuff, but then without looking, she looked up, and he kissed her.

Okay, I failed at that, but it's something, right?

Colors are well organized, the lighting effect is interesting and anatomy is alright. I especially like the hair, on both of them.

this is what you should work on here:
Aang's shoulder is too far forward. It looks like it's either dislocated, or his chest/ribcage is extremely thick, far too thick for a 14-year-old. The folds of the cloth on his shirts and pants also don't make very much sense, and you should probably look into working with drawing actual cloth to see what it would look like.

Katara's body seems fairly squished. from her shoulder to her hip seems like it should be stretched out quite a bit. Although the character's arms and legs are the right length, compared to the head and shoulders, the torso itself is off, which gives a very shrunken feel to her stomach and chest.

The last thing that needs work is: Aang doesn't look like he's kissing her nose. His lips are so far forward that it looks like he's biting her, instead.
What do you think?

Beautiful. I love the colors and lightning here. And Aang looks older here, too (it must be the hair). ;)
