Realistic Painting of Mai by missbennet Realistic Painting of Mai by missbennet
As many around here I'm also a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

One of the things I have frequently wondered about this show is “what would the characters look if they were actual people instead of cartoon”, so I decided to paint some of them as I imagine they would look like. This is my take on Mai.

This was all done on Photoshop. I painted everything, with the exception of the pattern texture of her clothes (you know, the little flowery drawings) and some of the background textures; those I got from [link] .

WOW!

It's so realistic, and she looks just how I picture her in real life. My only suggestions are that you make the purple darker, and tone down the brightness in the red. Otherwise, it's perfect!
