A:CtS Character Study [YAMA and MARDUK] by Tyshea A:CtS Character Study [YAMA and MARDUK] 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 :)


These are my characters, Yama and Marduk.

Yama is a rebellious fire-bender with all the spark to match.
His aggression can rival that of Kou's, but he has a much harder time suppressing it so he over-trains his body as a means to compensate.

Marduk, on the other hand, is a tall, silent non-bender from the Northern Water Tribe.
His calm but intimidating demeanor balances and keeps Yama in check. He specializes in disguises.

They are in a relationship.

I love how the pattern on his wrists symbolizes that he is a fire bender.

I had a very nice time looking at all your studies. Your characters are very inspiring, and you have a great sense of detail =) All those characters would make a fascinating story, if you choose to write it !
