Restore Balance by johnnygreek989 Restore Balance by johnnygreek989
This design is for a t-shirt contest with the theme:

"Yin and Yang."

For "Yin-Yang" week, I decided that it would be a pretty cool idea if I made an "Avatar the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra" version of Yin and Yang with the Red Lotus and the White Lotus. I thought that both of the Lotus orders would make a great Yin and Yang, because they both want to achieve balance in the world, but their views on balance are very different from each other. The White Lotus wants to achieve balance through peace/order, where as the Red Lotus wants to achieve balance through chaos. Just like Yin and Yang, the Lotus orders are two opposing forces that compliment each other very well. I drew everything with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

Also, the contest is at www.forhumanpeoples.com and on their YouTube channel:

This design is incredible! Did you ever consider selling it here? I'd totally buy a high resolution image (to print as a poster), as the price for shipping of the shirt to my country is prohibitive...

Well ForHumanPeoples.com currently owns all rights to the design. So I can't sell it anywhere else, but I could just email you a high resolution image of the design myself. Just as long as you don't make any profit off of it. Do you have a gmail account?

Oh my gosh! I love this :) Such a good concept and idea, I am surprised I didn't think of it! I'm super jealous! Haha, but really it is wonderful. Good use of line, color, and effect.

Saving this as a potential tattoo idea, if you don't mind. I'll send you creds if it does happen. This is an incredible representation!

Hopefully the creators of the show would pay you for this and make it the official symbol for the series. This is fantastic and I really want to know how you put this together.

Lol, I wish, and thank you very much. All I did was create the shapes in Adobe Illustrator, and then I did the color editing and added the texture in Adobe Photoshop.

lol. Thank you very much, but sadly it's only sold on t-shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and phone cases. However, people seem to be getting it as a tattoo as well. lol.

Hi, I have just turned 18 and finally get a tattoo. I've loved your picture since the first time I saw it and would really like to have it tattooed. Would that be ok? I can send a picture of the finished result if you want to. :)

at first I actually thought the yin-yang was Vaatu/Raava though obviously the colors don't add up, but anyway your concept with the two Lotus is appropriate and great :) I can't buy tshirts online and all but this one would be one I'd love to have
