I love how silly otters look when they run.
Reblogging because I added John.
Hey ya’ll, if you’re struggling with towns or scenes, this is great
Maybe I should put this all in tag form, like this post, so people actually read it. I don’t know why desirability to read correlatively increases with difficulty to read, but okay.
I’ve always admired this Firebending training session for several reasons: their forms are synchronized perfectly, Aang’s finally catching on, yet Zuko’s fire visibly burns hotter than Aang’s to illustrate his superior mastery.
Now I have a new appreciation of this bit, which I only noticed watching the first gif continually for a good 15 minutes.
So, there, in the first gif, after Aang and Zuko throw down their firebomb, they both actually call some of the flames back to the them when they lock up their firsts above their heads. The fire collects around their arms, or rather the force they exert with their chi around their arms. It’s an exercise in defense against ambient fire, stray flames from a blast, which need to be dissipated whether they’re emanating from someone else’s bending or your own.
This is the control Aang so desperately sought. This is what makes Zuko the perfect teacher for Aang at this point in their journey, because Zuko has finally become the kind of individual capable of this finesse and philosophy.
It’s beautiful how the animation can speak such volumes.
I can attest to the fact that the arm position in the first gif is one of a set of defensive arm-positions taught at my dojo. (the one where it looks like football goalposts, when the fire’s being sucked in)

‘Spirit Stallion of the Cimarron' - Concept Artwork
Whew! I spent a ridiculous amount of time tinkering with the finishing touches on this one, and ended up making several more versions than were strictly necessary.
Edit: After uploading one and then changing my mind several times, I caved and uploaded both. Sorry for taking up extra room on your dash! I was unable to resolve my internal conflict.
The Warrior Pack purse line. There are 8 different ways you can wear the purse (handbag, purse, thigh holster, shoulder holster, messenger bag, backpack, fanny pack, and protected purse). Simply adjust the straps to change the look. The safest purse ever created and even more safe with a Glock 23 in the middle compartment! A high quality leather bag that is fun and gets noticed.
