Water Tribe 162 by NoSelfControl Water Tribe 162 by NoSelfControl
This was a plot point I needed to get to at some point. Now is better than never.

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.

Nice plot development that adds another layer to Arnook's character. It reflects well between his role as a chieftain devout to spirits and his role as a father devout to his lost daughter.

You portray Arnook's hatred well.

Of the scenes you depict Arnook, I like this one and the other one in the end of part 1 where he sadly remarks something along the lines of "Perhaps in our attempts to deal with the spirits, we forgot that we were dealing with a human."

(late reply is very late)
You have summed up pretty well Arnook's situation.

Ha! I knew Arnook wouldn't have let Zhao by without making his wish for avenging Yue known! (And nice way to introduce it in tandem to Horuk's desire to get vengeance for his -still living, as he may soon find out :P- daughter!) :D

It was better to mention it at least once, rather than keep it a secret (for the reader anyway). Arnook is no weakling or fool.

Aww poor Zhao.
He was clueless.

I like this turn of events.

oooohhh....an interesting flashback....and pretty intriguing plot point...

ah, the dark side of an angry father....I was kinda doubtful as to why he accepted Zhao in the tribe in the first place...

Arnook's acceptance of Zhao was always something I had to get to. Or else, it felt like he may have been a bit too...forgiving.
