Art Nouveau Avatars - The Four Seasons by swadeart Art Nouveau Avatars - The Four Seasons by swadeart
Prints are currently unavailable; follow me here or on tumblr (swade-art.tumblr.com) so that you can find out when I do a re-release.

Tumblr Link! please reblog from there rather than posting again :D

The idea from the beginning was to make a piece that played on Alphonse Mucha's Four Seasons only with the most recent Avatars.  If you prefer a different order be sure to check out my gallery as I already made another version.

My inbox just exploded because of the DD post, sorry if I'm not able to respond to everyone!  Thanks for the support!

everyone except Roku looks like there in the middle of dancing with the spirits (at least that how it looks to me with there serene looking faces) but Roku looks like he's just decided to kick someone's ass!

I think what's important to me about this piece, is the colors.  
Using the correct ones and deciding which ones to use for accenting is well done.  

Keeping it consistent with the original, but using them to your own liberty.
It's a very nice piece.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do.e.. WALLSTREET34.COM

Simple bold coloring with a strong contrast and pose for each of the avatars while having a bit of a faded, ancient look.  Very strong and simple piece, well done :D

Would love to purchase this along with your 'The Future Still Remains' piece. I was about to purchase Lucina but I'm hoping this will pop up on your store as well.

First of, simply brilliant, I'm currently using it as my laptop's background :)
That being said, I do have something to point out: while the 3 older Avatars have been connected to their Nation through the respective National Emblem on the top of the images (Air Nomads for Aang, etc...), Korra is depicted with the elemental symbol of Water. Don't know if this was done on purpose or was simply a mix up, but I thought I would point it out...
(don't know if someone else had already noticed this before me, since I didn't read all the other comments, but if anybody did, my apologies...)

Someone mentioned that before (possibly on reddit) and admittedly it was due to a confusion on my part.  I had noticed the Water Tribe "National" symbol (the moon and the waves) was used almost exclusively by the Northern Water tribe and it featured strongly in their clothing, banners, and architecture.  There wasn't really a direct analog for the south and the symbol isn't seen on any Southern tribe gear I'm aware of but the "waterbender" symbol is, if only on a single necklace.  Simply put I took this to mean that one symbol was for the northern tribe and one was for the southern.  And Korra is from the south.

Of course as you know it's really just a quirk of there being so few southerners in the show and what gear they have is more rustic (so no architecture w/ symbols, flags, etc).  Small pools of data often lead us to incorrect conclusions like this.

That said, I think from a visual perspective it's more pleasant this way and I think using the other bending symbols would have been disruptive because they are only represented as line art and as such couldn't support the two-tone theme I wanted to carry forward.  

Thanks for your feedback!

Ya, I've got to agree with you, it looks much better this way, though you can see the Water tribe flag on southerner equipment sometimes during A:TLA...
