Hey, I figure you're dealing with school stuff right now, but curious if there's going to be more. (Augh, such a cliffhanger!! x3)

On a side note, I love how you do action sequences, the water of Katara's attack in the first panel is just the right mix of spiky and curving, and her hair loopies flying all over the place. To have to fight off a big wild animal like that would be pretty terrifying even if you were a bender.

Ah, that kind of makes sense. (The grandfather reminds me of Pakku in how frustrating and not necessarily nice he can be in how he expresses things, but beneath that gruff personality his heart seems to be in the right place.)

Mysterious comment there, looking forward to finding out more on the history of their family, and what he might be alluding to. (The way I recall, we don't know too much about Nia's mother just yet.)

@SALTORII: OH! No ya, I can see it! Wait so the Grandfather can earthbend!? This just threw me for a loop! I'm VERY curious to see ow this turns out

Aw thank you so much! Your supports been really encouraging haha. I’m glad both sides make sense. I didn’t want to make Aang seem irrational - I feel he’d be less easily agrivated after book 1 on this issue but it’s still kinda early Story so I was unsure if it’d be clear with characterisation! :D

Sorry if it’s not clear haha, the grandfather used some earth bending with his foot to shunt Aang off his feet!

Wait - Aang used Earthbending? I thought those bottom panels were showing Grandfather put some airbender moves on Aang - Hence he fell on his butt haha!

Haha, so hard to concentrate over the holidays. But so excited to see more pages! And wow, took a bit of a turn toward the serious, I love it. (I can see things a bit from the grandfather's POV and why he would be angry, but you can imagine how horrible that would be for Aang.)

On a technical note, I love how you did the subtle earthbending in the lower panels, you can really feel the action, and it's so painful in having an adult treat Aang like he's acting like a kid after hurting him that way. Very curious to see where he goes as a character, if he'll be someone that ultimately has the wisdom of someone like Pakku who's just hard to get along with at first, or if his bitterness will tilt him over more into the bad guy realm.

Best of luck of the upcoming pages, can't wait to see more!!

Hehe! This should be interesting, been looking forward to getting the full backstory on this kind of strange little place. (Guess it makes sense that not every old person they run into is going to be over a hundred.) Although with Zuko getting ever closer to Katara and Nia, I have a bad feeling they might get interrupted soon...

Can't wait for more!! C:

It took me an honestly large amount of time to adjust to clip studio. The version I use is on the iPad bough and I have downloaded a few custom brushes (even for comic tools!)

@SALTORII:
Oh, that makes sense, I guess clipstudio does have some better tools for making a comic look more manga-like. (Though I have Mangastudio, essentially the same program, and seem to recall not being to get quite that effect very easily. Maybe I just needed to stick with it and/or practice some more.)

Sadly I can’t give much advice on speed lines, I use clipstudio and mist of those elements are included in a vector system where you can edit the number, intensity and direction

Ah thank you guys! Sadly I can’t give much advice on speed lines, I use clipstudio and mist of those elements are included in a vector system where you can edit the number, intensity and direction ^^

I'm with Rocket, I am curious to know how you did the speed lines as well. I certainly feel the motion and I liked that you included that small panel up in the left hand corner!

I agree with Morzone, I love how Katara's eyes aren't shown in the first panel, great dramatic effect. I also agree that having strong backgrounds can really help bring the story to life, and I like what you've done so far even if you haven't always felt confident about them. (I think backgrounds are always a struggle for everyone, especially in a comic, where you have closeup panels and it's not always clear what elements you can put in the background that you would expect to be there, seeing the character from that angle. I definitely struggle with this, and I like that you've consistently added something that either is a reflection of the surrounding setting, or enhances the mood.)

I do think having too many repeated elements in tree bark (or is it stone behind Katara's head in the third panel? The second panel would seem to imply so) can make it look flat and more like a pattern than a real background, though I admit I didn't initially notice that, I think because it's so dark (at least on my screen) that I can't make it out clearly. But, considering the scene is set at night, maybe that's okay.

I really like the background in the second panel, with that almost painterly look on the stone cliff behind them, and the layering transparency on the surrounding ground, it has a sort of artistic semi-realism to it that I think works so well for Avatar-related work.

On the story side, really interested in this conversation, it feels like Nia is definitely getting at something that Katara isn't necessarily picking up on. (I had a theory about Nia in the beginning based on the way she's dressed [now I can't remember if I said it already, lol] which I was on the point of dismissing, but this makes me wonder about it again.)
