A:CtS Character Study [SEI and YOZU] by Tyshea A:CtS Character Study [SEI and YOZU] 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 *Ai-Bee's character, Sei'zin, and my character, Yozu.

Sei is the smallest and weakest member of the Crimson Sand, but her medical skills are unrivaled.
Her cold stare hides a rather vulnerable person, but her quick feet keep her out of harms way.
She has a complicated relationship with Kye as a love affair and fellow assassin.

Yozu is a hot-headed and immature fighter, as well as the youngest member of the Crimson Sand.
He can be obnoxious and overly confident, but it's all bark and little bite- at least compared to the rest of the assassins.

They're brother and sister

I honestly really like the semi-nudity.
Hell, because of you, it's made want to try out different face shapes and now all these different body types and structures. I think it's really interesting to see. c: So, thanks, Ty.

Wow, one can see the evolving of the characters here. Also, clothing and poses match with the television series. Most creators also draw layer by layer, starting with the body, than add the clothes over it, so no problem here for me. After reading the description of the project I say that this would be a heavy task for me, as these are sensible themes, which I'm not really good at. The first problem (trafficking) is a huge one, undermining peoples dignity and I'm against both (undermining and trafficking). Of course, war is also not "Father of all things", or "source of civilization", or have you ever seen that anything constructive comes out of it? Well, enough of that; I don't want to be nagging and write overlong sentences (one of my flaws). I like how you make different ideas and concepts into pictures, it's always good to be versatile. Maybe you know Fullmetal Alchemist, there is also religious fanaticism treated in the first chapter of the first volume. I though it was a positive influence how Hiromu Arakawa did the theme. She also has done more of the more serious themes without losing the right dose and timing of humour, always so that we can take something out of it into our lives (if we want). Just think that could be an example to follow and develop. And Edward with his flamboyant personality is just adorable. Last thing I want to say; keep the work up! Can't wait to read them.

Wow, thank you so much!

The themes of the story are definitely hard to work with, but I think we can pull it off :D
I do know of Fullmetal Alchemist, but I never read the original comic series. I'll definitely give it a go- thanks for the suggestion!

My pleasure. At first, I thought I was a bit harsh with you and afraid this would result in a breakdown of communication, but now I'm relieved reading your positive answer. And again, you also give me some points and hints, where I could go on my projects and for that I'm very grateful.

Hm. Sei'zin/Kye is making me question my OTP ship of Ryebread. XD

I'm loving all these designs though! The body comparisons alone are marvelous, and I bet each character has such interesting backstories if their scars are anything to go by.

And the clothing! OMG! The outfits are flawless as usual!
