Guru Pahtik by Isaia Guru Pahtik by Isaia
I can tell this character is gonna be awesome yo.

THE GURU (from Appa's Lost Day's) RAWKS

something about him is immediately evident that he has the power to do crazy awesomes.

Ehh, I could have made some parts of the lineart more refined.. need more...practice omg XP, and other things, but ahh, I'm glad I was able to post this.

Tried to write a quote in sanskrit (classical hindu) and write it here, but it ended up looking fffffffuffed than I intended to..and next time I'll refine it for other drawings 83

it translates to:

Arjuna asked:
Krishna, when do we say of a person
that has the signs of knowledge,
and that he holds himself in light?
How does he speak?
How does he sit?
How does he walk?

-Bhagavad Gita
Fragments from the Mahabharata.


EDIT:
and because is awesome,
she just reminded me that Teh Guru is actually
150 years old OMG

XDDDDD

nice.
I love the Guru for being pretty much the only Indian-based person in Avatar. And for probably living on onion and banana juice for about 100 years. (I'm assuming he had a more...varied diet as a "youngster".)
And, for reference--"Hindu" refers to the religion of Hinduism or its practitioners: the language is called Hindi.

He does seem like he will most definitely be awesome! He's supposedly 150 years old.. older than Aang himself! It's pretty cool.. can't wait to see more of what he can do! Very nice art, it reminds me of his personality. What little we of it, I mean..
