Now Playing Tracks

It’s recently come to my attention that people think the new Chandra art looks bad or flawed. I think it’s because they don’t understand what’s going on and their mind overreacts negatively to things it doesn’t expect.

I for one really like this art. Her pose is badass, she looks focused on whoever she’s facing, engrossed in her magic and concentrating not to fall into the lava below her. She looks more disciplined than she used to and not as angry or temperamental.

To me, this tells a story of Chandra facing off against an opponent that she can’t afford to get angry at, somebody so dangerous that she can’t lose control. Perhaps another red mage like Sarkhan?

Anyway, I think you can expect a few more art analysis from me in the future if a piece gets this much attention.
