Water Tribe 145 by NoSelfControl Water Tribe 145 by NoSelfControl
Whoever said "Iceberg!" on the last page gets a :cookie:
Close enough: lots and lots of ice.

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.

Being firebenders, couldn't they, in theory, melt their way through it? If the ship can push through the ice can't be that thick, and they could at least soften it to make an either path...

The first panel is really impressive. The elliptical holes in the ice add alot of depth. The ship too! Those things are beasts when it comes to perspective. :ohnoes:

Good things these holes are not perfect ellipses, 'cause then the perspective would be all wonky, believe me.

I'm not certain whether Zhao will appreciate Celine Dion popping up, as she is certain to at any moment.
Also, OH SNAP, young guy whose name I don't remember, you are a tricky tricky trickster. Trick.

For a moment, I saw a giant Celine emerging from the frozen ocean, like a giant sea monster :giggle:

Did you notice that you ended "flow" with an e?

Ice floe is actually written with an "e" at the end. I had been corrected when I had written it with a "w".

Probably they noticed the ice formation from afar before getting to Lao's ship. They'll use their environment to their advantage.
