How about helping out this artist with a vote? I'd appreciate it a lot!


Sai, PS

Japanese for "Endurance"

A contest piece for :iconavatar-fan:
The theme was: What if Korra never met the Fire Ferrets? Create a waterbender for the team.

Now, I never intended on joining, however, when my bro pitched me the idea of an armless Waterbender, I knew it was too good to pass up uncreated.

Yay, TV Tropes links!  I'm pretty sure the show creators draw from lots of fan ideas when writing LoK.  It especially shows in Book 3, when they whip out the lethal airbending.

So did the show give any credit for your idea or no. Frankly it could be just a coincidence. The characters themselves are obviously very different and many people say that Suzanne Collins stole the idea for the hunger games form Danganronpa but her flipping throw channels story also sounds credible.

Still, If the creators did "borrow" the idea it would be nice if they at least asked permission

Heh, there's really no proof that they got the idea from me :) Plenty of people come up with variations of the same idea given that we all draw from the same source of Creativity. It's still pretty exciting seeing your concept appear; I mean, plenty of fans have their headcanons, but how many of those headcanons actually become true?

If I meet the creators, I'll be sure to shake their hands :)

"Stole" is such a strong word. "Borrowed" is nicer :)

This is awesome!
Although, I think it would be hard to hold a map
or any paper.
