Water Tribe by zirio Water Tribe by zirio
Done as a warm-up to get my skills back in shape so I can finish my commissions. I had to take a break from this to get references since I've never watched more than the pilot episode of Avatar.

Not that this is actually supposed to be Sokka anyway. 8D

Avatar is Nickelodeon's



...and yeah, the left arm's messed up, but I really don't want to redraw it. TT ^ TT

This is one sweet picture, that is Sokka merged with a snow lepord or snow cheetah? Anyway it would be cool if someone could make a fic based on this picture.

It's a snow leopard, actually. XD

Little do you know that I spent all of middle school and half of highschool drawing anthros. Run in fear! 8D

Ah, I get it (not that one can really tell from the sketch >_<;) . . . snow, water . . . it's still adorable, but then I drew kitty-chicks in junior high, so my opinion is biased.

Yeah, no, he looks like just another cat-boy, I want to color his spots with a grey marker instead of using my black pen to ink them in. :3

Kemonomimi are always adorable. :3

Yeah, that would look good- for some reason gray always puts the 'snow leopard' part across better than black. Odd, though, you'd think the white fur should do that just fine on it's own . . .

I think it's more because layering the greys and creams and dusky browns makes it seem more real. The spots aren't really black on the animal, they're layers of darker greys and browns over lighter shades, and all of that over a cream or off-white thick undercoat. It's a trick of evolution to make their fur blend in with the shadows on the snow around them. At least that's what I think. Besides, layering markers and blending them is more fun than just straight-out inking them. :3
