This is one of my favorite pieces I've ever done, and it's the first where I really let myself be bold with the colors I used. My inspiration was this screencap
and, oddly enough, this piece
I was looking around for something to draw while on Discord with some friends, and I found the 'Piglet' piece and decided to make Appa in the style of that pig, using that frame as a reference. I ended up adding more details as I went along, though, and then realized that using the orange-y colors from the show didn't give me enough contrast for what I wanted to do, so I fully embraced the sunset look and let the colors tell me what to do.
