Pro Bending by seyrii Pro Bending by seyrii
The Fire Ferrets facing off against the Southern Sea Ottereels! Or something.

Well, I'm glad to have this done. I started this at the beginning of summer, and after finishing the background I got really burned out and only picked it back up recently. The background was especially challenging, but I hope I learned something, and I want to do some landscape-only pieces or speedpaints.

Enjoy!

Oh, and Tumblr.

Quick, Campbell! we must figure out the powers of Psionics so that this might be reality! just kidding, but seriously if Pro-bending was real, this is what it might look like.

It would be so cool if this is a first person game.

Interesting perspective. I love the smokey backdrop. The engravings/details on the main wall are very nicely done too. You need a bit of work on your torches. Mako's fire looks fine though.

Well done with the POV, only thing that looks a little off is Bolin. I always thought he was a bit...bigger or more muscular even in the Fire Ferret uniform.

Woah. This is a really interesting picture. I feel like the composition could use a lot of work, the perspective is pretty strange. Maybe that's the point though? But the background and colors and lighting are pretty amazing!! I think the guy on the right could use some thicker, darker or sharper outlines.

I'm more proud of the background itself than the actual characters, I feel like I kind of added them as an afterthought.
What's wrong with the composition? I know the positioning of some of the benders is a bit off, but other than that, I'm honestly curious.
You're probably right about Mako (on the right). He was the first character I started on, way at the beginning of summer, and I used some different stuff detailing what little you can see of the other characters. He might look more in-style outlined or something.

Well, for one, your focal point is the background. Remember, the focal point is wherever the lightest light is next to the darkest dark, aka, the point of highest contrast. It can also be where all the "lines" in the picture point. In this case, both of those are approximately in the upper-middle left, on the left corner of that pagoda type roof. However, there's no element of interest right there, just background. All your main characters are in the lower third of the picture. One way to fix this without too much work is to reduce the contrast of the background and increase the contrast of your characters. Add some sharp shadows or bold outlines in there to make them stand out more. The shadows are very indistinct, yet the lighting in the background makes it seem like they should be sharper, directly lit from overhead.

The other way to fix this, is to add some foreground element, character or otherwise to that portion of the image, in front of that amazing background you've drawn.
