Fire can not exist without Air by Pugletz Fire can not exist without Air by Pugletz
Worldbending; Fire/Air Nation (Brazil)

Brazil was kind of a toss up, but I really wanted an excuse to illustrate some capoeira movements!

These two are another duo of fabulous bending brothers - biracial bending brothers of Native and African descent. They’ve adopted Airbending and Firebending as an art (Firebending as it’s practiced by the natives, and airbending as it was practice by their African ancestors). Capoeira, I think, works well for both. :3

This drawing reminded me of some guys I saw last week on the street playing (you can say either 'fighting' or 'playing', because for a lot of people caoeira is not only a fighting style, but also a game) capoeira... Good job, very nice work!

There's a very sweet element to this given the tension between the Fire Nation and Air Nomads in canon :D

Very interesting! I love the concept of bringing the Avatar abilities to other parts of the world!
Makes my inner fangirl burst out of my brain because I am Afro-Caribbean decent, so that would probably make the Caribbean Islands Water/Earth Nations ('cept the ones with vocanoes...)! Very special for me since I connect alot with the element Water! <3 Water tribe forever! :faint: :heart:
