For my next tutorial of the day I will be teaching you how to draw a character from an animated show that I used to watch like a year ago and just recently started watching it again. He is a cool looking character that doesn’t get much publicity as of yet but I know he will in the near future. So having said all that I will show you all how to draw Aang from Avatar: The Last Air Bender. Now if you are wondering exactly who Aang is and what the show is about all I will tell you is “you’re missing out”. First off Aang is that character from Nickelodeon with the bald head and a blue arrow tattoo. He is a character that I am very fond of. I know that anyone that hasn’t seen this animated show before will love it if they gave it a shot. In fact Avatar won an Emmy award before that is how good it is. Now some may be thinking or wondering if the show was created by Japanese animation. The answer to that question is no. Avatar is an American animated series and it aired on Nickelodeon for a whole three seasons. Of course even though the show wasn’t created by Japanese animated artist, it still has an Asian influenced world which contains martial arts, and base characters on their elemental backgrounds. Aang which is the main character of the show is an Air Nomad who is the last of his kind. Now Air Nomads are a very peaceful and tranquil race that was wiped out by the Fire Nation like a hundred years ago or something like that. These Air Nomads use to travel the skies on their flying Bison and were said to be the most spiritual of all other elemental cultures and lived in harmony with nature, almost like Native Americans or Indians. Like all Air Nomads Aang is an Airbender. Now there is this thing that Aang performs called the Avatar State which is triggered when Aang is in an extreme physical or emotional state. Now when Aang is in this Avatar state he automatically sends out a sort of distress single to his past lives which call friends like Avatar Roku to aid and assist him. The reason why Aang is still alive after a hundred years being in an iceberg is because of the power and strength of the Avatars. Like all Air Nomads Aang is an Airbender. Airbending is considered an art of Non- aggression. Basically it teaches you how to fight without actually fighting. It’s actually hard to explain. It’s a combination of soft flowing movements that transforms whenever you try and pin it down. An Airbender uses his opponent’s energy against him. I like Aangs character not only because he is a cute 12 year old boy in reality but because he holds a unique art. I will show you how to draw Avatar Aang step by step with easy to follow instructions. I hope you like this tutorial and I will be back later with another. I am tired so I will rest. Peace out people.
