Due to developing carpal tunnel syndrome, updates are currently Monday every three weeks. I'll get back to updating every other week when I can.
I'd really like to make a page each week, but I also have health problems with my hands and as such am not fast enough art-wise to manage it. If you want to be notified when new pages are put up, you can also follow me on deviantart, twitter or tapastic.
A fan comic of Avatar the last airbender, about Kyoshi's discovery that she's the Avatar, and her first challenge: saving the earth kingdom from a war between Chin and the Earth king - something she's entirely not ready for.
A couple things I should mention: this comic is a place were I can simply experiment, have fun, and learn. Therefore, the style is probably going to be inconsistent. I also can't manage color all the time because of how long it takes, so color will be reserved for certain sections.
Also, Kyoshi might seem a little different than you would expect at the beginning of the story. That's on purpose. We know her as a powerful warrior, but I think that's probably not what she started out as, but rather what she became. This is the story of how that happens.
Learned on this page that I didn't know how to draw people yelling. Turns out I draw that facial expression so intrequently I haven't learned how to do it right, so l had to look up some reference online of yelling people.
I think the expressions came out pretty well considering that, but they still aren't quite exactly what I was aiming for. Facial expressions are particularly sensitive to subtle variation of lines, which of course requires study and practice that in this case I apparently haven't put in yet. Lots to learn!
@SUGauthor: It's a complex situation. They don't exactly hate her - angry and disappointed is a little more accurate (though I suspect that's basically what you meant). They saw that she tried to take Kyoshi's place to protect her which was brave and admirable, but from their perspective, she knew the whole time everyone was frantically trying to find Kuruk and thought she knew better than everyone what was best to do and kept it a secret even from Kyoshi's parents, which resulted in the new avatar being captured. Kyoshi's mother also just yelled that it was all her fault, hinting that there's more they don't know which puts even more blame on her shoulders, which isn't correct, but Kyoshi's mom was too upset and shocked at realizing Ming knew to realize Ming actually tried to tell them twice and Kyoshi was the one trying to keep it a secret. From experience I've found people can be quick to try to find someone to blame, and are much more likely to believe something is the fault of someone else's kid rather than their own.
So no, it wasn't Ming's fault, exactly - no one, not even Kyoshi's mom actually thinks 100% of the blame is hers, after all Tseng was the one who captured her, Chin's the one in charge of Tseng and the war wouldn't have even started if it wasn't for the earth king (not to mention it was Kyoshi who wanted to keep it a secret, though at the moment only Ming and Kyoshi are aware of that). It was more of a combination of events that she had significant influence in, the people around her think her decisions were very unwise and the outcome could have been very different if she had told people. Ming is also being hard on herself because she even thought it was a bad idea at the time but went along with it anyway.
Now it's been a while since I've read through the whole story, but from what I remember Ming seems to get the pretty shit end of most Kyoshi-related situations XD She's good for putting up with it but I'm expecting an explosion from her or even some rivalry(...?)
