Sorry about the wait. I've been so swamped at work lately that I didn't even notice this episode had already aired. To be completely honest, I just plain forgot about posting this in general, until I was reminded by a fellow deviant artist. So Kudos to you Silentjosh847!
Anyway, I was commissioned by the wonderful people at Nickelodeon to do this piece of press art for the big two part battle taking place right in the middle of the 3rd season entitled The Day of Black Sun. As usual, I did the 3 preliminary designs, one was approved and moved forward with. Then a final pencil version is done, then the colored version.
After all that, the very kind and talented Bryan Konietzko went over the painted version and sweetened the whole thing with subtle tweaks that really made the final piece look 20 jabillion times better than I ever could have done. Thanks for making me look good Bryan!
Hope you guys like it!
