Water Tribe 420 by NoSelfControl Water Tribe 420 by NoSelfControl
...

Page original size 5,5" X 8".
Rough pencils. Grey shading, lettering and word balloons 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.

Ha ha, I'd never do that. One memory loss per story is enough.

For Zhao, the spirits made sure he'd never get them back. He was a blank slate (but the personality stayed).

I suppose we shouldn't get TOO excited about his survival...he hasn't met up with the tribe yet...
But that resurfacing panel is pretty fantastic - the movement is just great.

That's the beauty of comic time: things happen more or less fast, as need be. That little gutter space between panels is magic!

Well, Zhao, I'm afraid you'll have to take all your clothes off to dry. Or else you risk hypothermia. It's only for practical reasons, really.

The place is warm enough (that's Zhao's excuse- he's tired of the shirtlesness he had to go through before).

is someone using a wip on you IRL? XD

All the pages were already done. They just needed some tweaks and fixes (though a new one got added too).
And let's not forget Toph and her threat of earthquake, and June with her whip.

Hard to say- these are just rough pencils and drawn rather small. It's easy to do 2 (if there's not too much detail)
