Water Tribe 142 by NoSelfControl Water Tribe 142 by NoSelfControl
Small update, mostly about ships shooting at each others and missing their targets...hopefully more interesting than it sounds.

Page original size 5,5" X 8".
Rough pencils. Grey shading, lettering and word ballons done in Photoshop
These pages done for fun, and also as a good exercise in storytelling and planning on such a long scale, which I had not really done before.
I am not planning on inking, cleaning more or coloring them. I simply do not have the time.

The Avatar universe belongs to Mike, Bryan, Nickelodeon-Viacom-MTV.
All the characters belong to them, but a few of the extras are my own creation.

I love the last panel with the ship turning. It's so dramatic. Like the ship wears a cape.

Also, on the note of Zhao swearing, a few pages back... I can't really imagine him saying "Oh, poo."

*imagines ship with an actual cape*.
I can't think of any good swear words for Zhao. I think I have him say "Crud" at some point. That's as mild as it gets.

I bet Zhao would also win at navel battle...just because he'd be shirtless.

*has entered naval warfare geek mode* I wonder what the turn radius is on one of those ironclads, and how fast a 180-degree turn-about could be accomplished, especially in ice-clogged water. Wooden sailing ships could actually be nimble, but a metal hull really slows things down, particualrly if you're assuming these things are steam-powered.

/GEEK MODE.

YAH, ZHAO, KICK THEIR ASSES WITH UR PWNTASTIC NAVAL SKILLZ!!! :excited:

Certainly not very good turn, or very fast. But he tries his best to fight back and not show too much side.

I feel bad for the helmsmen. ^^; having Zhao yelling at you like that must suck.

He must be used to getting yelled at all the time. Or if not yelled, snapped at.

To us it looks right, but to Zhao on deck, looking straight ahead, he's going left.

Oooh, powerful angle on that last panel. I'm paranoid that pointy ship bow is going to pierce my eyes. x_x

And that over head view is great too...my, such lovely angles you have! :D

No worries, it is not only way too big but also very high. You'd have to be very very very unlucky for it to happen.
(I feel like I should answer some big bad wolf way to that last comment, hee hee)
