A:CtS Character Study [CHANDRA] by Tyshea A:CtS Character Study [CHANDRA] by Tyshea
Chasing the Sun is a fan-project that takes place before the events of Avatar: the Last Airbender. It's a darker story about human trafficking and the world of assassination during a time of war

This is a set of character studies, both of default outfits and body types/diversity.
I apologize for semi-nudity, but I don't really think it needs a mature filter

There's no comic (yet), we're just in the for-fun conceptualizing phase and will be for a while :)


This is my character, Chandra.

Silent and fearsome, Chandra is the most powerful assassin in the Crimson Sand.
His water-bending is as powerful as his physical skill, but he hides a broken soul behind that mutilated face.
He is undyingly loyal to Kajur

The Crimson Sand:

With all this amazing art that you do and the original characters you make, why didn't Nickelodeon just do something like this. This would be so much better than Legend of Korra! (Not that I'm bad mouthing lok or it's fans, I just find the show rushed. Especially the second season.) In fact, I bet you that they would ask you to join there animation group if they saw your work. I'm not kidding! These guys look like legit characters from the Atla trilogy. And I bet others feel the same way. But that's my opinion. Let me know what you think, if you don't mind.

haha, I definitely agree on LoK. I haven't seen the second season yet, but the first season was pretty rushed, plot-wise.

Thanks though! I'm really happy you dig these characters :D
Sad to say they won't be an Avatar fan story anymore, me and my partner have given them an original universe. You can check out the new project here if you're interested:…

Oh I saw and I must say that I am still blown away by the design, though I wish I could see more of Chandra's face in the Solaris universe. But may I be so bold as to ask you the permission of basing a character in my upcoming fanfic on Chandra. I've b

I've been having trouble making a good bodyguard character and I think this character fits the roll perfectly.

Uh, you can be inspired by whatever character you want dude, but don't copy his design or anything :0

Well here's what I got so far.

Name: Isaac Larson

Race: former human turned hallow

Gender: male

Age: 34

Lore: Isaac was one of the most decorated knights in the Holy Alliance and has proven multiple times that he was the best of the best, but that all changed when he and a small number of other heroes were given the mission of exterminating what he was told was a large and highly armed base of warriors comprised of dark races. Turns out that wasn't the case as the the highly dangerous military base was actually just a small and defenseless settlement of extremely poor dark raced families that were forced to salvage anything they could to survive. After seeing just how badly they had it, Isaac's morality and defending nature led him to defend the poor families from the other knights so the could escape. This, of course, labeled him as a traitor and he received a punishment worse than death. He was cursed and turned into what is known as a Hallow, a being that was once living but now has their soul and memories taken from them, and was teleported to the dark lands. Fortunately, his will was strong and he was able to remember his name, along with his moral code, and all the training he received at the academy. Now, he wanders aimlessly around struggling to regain his memories that we're taken from him, while also defending the dark races from the holy empire. And that's only his off days.

Personality: As expected from a hallow, Isaac isn't the most social living thing. Intact he's so quiet, it's easy to forget he's even in the room with you. Luckily, his training makes him the equivalent of both Captain America, the Batman, and John-117 combined. A soldier that can make miracles happen even when all seems lost. Though whenever he gets a memory laps, his expression can very from nirvana to agony depending on his memory. He is deathly loyal to the newly found shadow Ebon Sovereignty and is willing to make any sacrifice to protect it and it's ruler, the new Overlord. Even if that means his own life.

What do you think?
