Way of the Sage - Fire and Earth by raging-akujiki Way of the Sage - Fire and Earth by raging-akujiki
Second of my "Way of the Sage" paintings, inspired by one of the most captivating painters, Katsushika Hokusai. I decided to do another ukiyo-e style Korra piece, Fire and Earth. In this painting, Korra is closer to reaching the end of the journey of sages. New outfit, and a new matching ponytail.

Of the kanji on the right: The piece is called "Heart of the Firestorm," and it is of the series "Way of the Sage."

Lines on paper, colours digitally. Kanji, India ink and brush.

Actually that was what I was hoping for, with my newest sage piece smack in the middle of the two.  Thanks!

Whoa! My mind is still blown from the last one and this is a perfect complement to that piece. Again, amazing colors, the classic ukiyo-e influence is clear and right on point. I can't even handle how awesome this is. I'm guessing that air and earth are coming soon I hope?

Thanks so much man!  Actually I was originally going to do four, one for each element.  But I decided to combine them so as not to make it stale.  The first was water and wind; so there are waves and a wind dragon.  The second was fire and earth; flames from her mouth plus molten lava (which is technically rock, so I tossed in a few magma rocks in it).  The last one that I just finished drawing right this moment is going to be her at the end of her journey, where she reaches sage state.  And you can guess, it'll have all elements in it.  Hope you dig it man.
