..Hi. Mizu.. by Isaia ..Hi. Mizu.. by Isaia

"What kind of fireworks appear in the SouthPole?" she asked.

"Hehe, the kind that the spirits draw in the sky... Come, I'll show 'em to ya." He smiled.



Ah, it feels good to draw these guyz again.
Inspired to when I listened to the awesome inuit-style music from the movie "The Boy who Became a White Bear"

My old OC's Rei and Toji. Though I know it's not too good to be so attached to ones own OC.s XP... and do the thing where you pretend "li3k omg my characters are part of the avatarverse : DDDD"...I can't help it. It makes me happy. X3

Managed to sit down and capture how I felt about their fanstory concept, and character designs and what kind of questions a firenation girl would ask her watertribe friend.

transitioning from considering each other as strangers from different worlds..to close friends who can find comfort and solace in each others' company despite differences and circumstance... ^__^

It was difficult trying to make traditional art look as clean as possible with limited materials..but then making digital art look as traditional and weathered as possible is another kind of difficult. But it's wonderful practice..as well as self soothing XD.

hehe, it greatly helped in gettin over artstipation.

Wow... I love the contrast between the traditional art and the cell(?) shading [not sure what it's called].

Anyway, they look much older than I'm used to seeing them! [Though Rei looks a bit more girlish now that I think about it... o_O;;]

'Sides, you know that if Rei and Toji really did exist in the Avatarverse they'd rock! :XD: ;p </Tlazohtzin's failed attempt at becoming an art critic>

This is lovely. I especially like the top half. You pulled off that ancient artwork look well! The stone and cloth textures look fabulous.

The interaction between the two of them in the bottom half is so friendly. Her eyes are so hopeful and he looks so pleased by getting to share a piece of his world that she might've never gotten to see otherwise.

Wonderful work! :love:

wow. the girl is so adorable. And they guy's quite the warrior-looking type. This wouldda made a cute pair if the nations weren't all war on each other. Which makes me wonder... I'm SURE that wayyy before the war, people from other nations must have fallen in love with each other all the time. how come we don't get mixed breeds like water/firebenders... earth/airbenders...

anyway, this pic is very nice. very stylized to their own nation. It works wonders.
kinda gives me an idea to do a zutara pic much like this.
keep it up.
