Avatar: Energy of Attatchments by DesShade Avatar: Energy of Attatchments by DesShade
Aang really is such a precious spirit.

While learning to control his Avatar State,
meaning the point where his energy is most powerful,
he learns from his teacher the 7 points of mastering his chakara.
His teacher tells him of the seven "gates" in the body, and how to open them so his chakara can flow, as well as what constricts or binds them.

When Aang learns of the Air chakara, his teacher informs him the region is the heart, and the gate is opened by love, but blocked by grief.
Aang sees a vision of all his tribe, the air benders, fade away into the clouds, leaving him alone as the last of the air benders.
But, before the grief is overpowering, the clouds gather and Aang see's the clear image of his deara friend Katara smiling back at him.
What is blocked by grief, is opened by love.
Aang then cries soft tears and wipes them away with the most precious smile I have ever seen.

Since mastering the Avatar State demands one must release their earthly attatchments to embrace the cosmic energies, Aang must surrender his love of Katara, to be free of all earthly bonds...

Of course he refuses, but in the end.. you'll just have to watch it. ^^

For those who watch Avatar, you'll recognize the necklace arounds Aang's neck as Katara's grandmothers necklace. Her proudest posession. Which makes this image a simple speculation of fanart since he does not actually posess her necklace, and is in fact in his Avatar State (thus the glowing arrow on his forehead lol)

I had to add the tears though, the image this is based off of was just to precious to leave them out..

Enjoy~

i now a good song for this picture; 'Goodbye to you' from michelle branch. verry good song.
the songtekst;

Of all the things I've believed in
I just want to get it over with
Tears form behind my eyes
But I do not cry
Counting the days that pass me by

I've been searching deep down in my soul
Words that I'm hearing are starting to get old
It feels like I'm starting all over again
The last three years were just pretend
And I said,

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

I still get lost in your eyes
And it seems that I can't live a day without you
Closing my eyes and you chase my thoughts away
To a place where I am blinded by the light
But it's not right

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

And it hurts to want everything and nothing at the same time
I want what's yours and I want what's mine
I want you
But I'm not giving in this time

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

And when the stars fall
I will lie awake
You're my shooting star

I love that episode! And in this episode Aang has the sweetest smile, and in a way you could pretend the necklace is from Katara as something to remeber her bye.

It's very impressive and adorable!

But I have to correct you: It's the necklace of Katara's mother! (She was killed by the firenation, thats why it's so importend to her. Her granny is still alive.) If someone told you so before, I'm sorry :)

I completely agree!! Where did you learn to shade like that? That is like the perfect mix between reality and fantasy styles. Simply In-Cre-Di-Bleh!

Awesomest job in the world, pretty much.
