Unalaq-Vaatu WIP by Sketchydeez Unalaq-Vaatu WIP by Sketchydeez
Just saw the latest Legend of Korra episode (the one with the flashback to the first avatar).  Awesome ep!  Pretty much lead me to believe Unalaq is going to be the one to free Vaatu, and become the first "Dark Avatar" to take on Korra and Raava.  I'm probably completely wrong, but felt like drawing what i pictured unalaq and vaatu joining forces would look like.  

This is a WIP progress.  Started laying down the rough sketch lines, but wanted to convey the glowing tattoos that were similar to the spirit Vaatu, so started laying down some rough colors.

I thought I went kind of crazy on this pic but the show took it even further with the dark avatar. It was pretty awesome to see and I was kind of smiling to myself when they finally merged and unalqs eyes lit up red.

think this was pretty much forecasted for a while, and the 'beginnings' episodes pretty much confirmed it.  was cool to see the formation of a dark avatar though -- just wish the dark avatar wasn't defeated so quickly.  would have provided some nice conflict for future seasons.

Weeeell now Vaatu is inside Raava and thus Korra/the Avatar forever until someone pulls him or Raava out of the Avatar's body or kills the Avatar in the Avatar state, so... technically the Dark Avatar is now just part of the Avatar.

it was pretty cool to see the dark avatar.  especially when he ripped out raava and went giant spirit monster.

Lol, that hand extended was suppose to be filled in with some bending effect, but I never followed up on it.

For some reason, he bears a slight resemblance to Trigon from Teen Titans.

Never watched teen titans, but looked up triton just now and he looks badass.

My thought is that Unalaq would have to be granted the other bending abilities from the Lion Turtles in order to bend all the other elements. That's how Wan got them all. He was bending them all before he even combined with Raava. I have no idea how this all going to go down but I can't wait to find out !! Also can't wait to see this once it's done.

Well Vaatu might have slightly different abilities than Raava, I was thinking Vaatu combined with Unalaq would be able to steal the bending powers from those that have them, like he can steal earthbending from Bolin, firebending from Mako and airbending from either Tenzin or Jinora.

good point -- forgot about that regarding the lion turtle granting wan all the bending.  let's see what happens.  so glad the original animation studio is back, because that ending battle is going to be epic.

Those episodes were really good! :D I'm wondering who they are going to make the ultimate villain. (I'm still secretly hoping for Varrick just because I want Vaatu to out on the command- Zhu Li do the thing.)

Great sketch! And I like the layer work you are doing! ^^

Yeah one of my favorite episodes. Varrick seems like the guy taking orders from someone. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
