When Avatar: The Last Airbender meets Avatar: The Legend of Korra.
I almost drew the whole crew! It was worth it because I love both shows.
Avatar animated series belong to: Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, Nickelodeon.

An old photograph with burnt edges of Sokka carrying a young Katara away from the burning remnants of the Southern Water Tribe after the catastrophic Fire Nation raid of 40AG.

Just a quick blurb I did because although I like Avatar but feel weird that they glossed over how horrifying the raid must’ve been to the S.Water Tribe. note: heavily referencing done of this photo of the korean war.


Please allow me a little moment of Water Tribe nostalgia and rambling (that, and I had no time to draw a new Zhao today).

Years ago, what started almost as joke, a little idea between friends of “what if Zhao had survived and lived among the water tribe” turned into a 447 pages monster. When an idea brick hits hard, it leaves a dent.

It was a learning experience. A great exercise. I look back at it, and there are so many things I’d love to tweak-fix, but I won’t Georges Lucas it. It is what it is, with its moments and its flaws. It was a blast to do.

It was only after 3 “chapters” that the idea of why the spirits would even spare Zhao’s life started to solidify. I never quite paid it off properly. Live and learn! As I said, it was done for fun and never properly planned.
