Water Tribe 143 by NoSelfControl Water Tribe 143 by NoSelfControl
Yes, Zhao has to be reminded when he's outnumbered and outgunned. Or else, he would just keep on fighting and make a fool of himself again.

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.

Face it, Zhao. The man simply isn't good at following orders. TSK TSK.

If we were to sum up Kwon, "mustache" and "perceptive" would be two key words.

If Zhao had Kwon around from the beginning he would've been much, much, much better off.

You may only kidnap Kwon when Zhao is done with him (that sounded...not quite right).

I like Kwon. Not as much as I like Lao, but I like him. I would like him better if he would help Lao save the vases.

Kwon is hired to be Zhao's second in command. He's not out to save vases. That's Lao's job.
