American illustrator Scott Wade has created Art Nouveau portraits of avatars from The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.
For the uninitiated, this animated series imagines a universe which allows people to “bend” the four elements—air, water, earth, and fire, with an all powerful “avatar”, who controls all four of them to preserve balance in the world.
Inspired by Mucha’s “The Four Seasons”, Wade depicts each avatar “bending” the elements with grace and finesse.
Wade has also arranged the avatars in chronological order, showing how the background in Aang’s image links to Korra’s.
Check out these well executed portraits below.
