They're so adorable this way! Reminds me of a fanfic I wrote FOREVER ago about taking the Gaang to the ski resort. :-)

Oh this is yours :D I seen this picture over several facebook fan-sites already, now I finally got around to check your entire gallery (which I left open in one of my tabs earlier) and see the original here xD

Well, anyways, real nice. I like how you got so much Avatar artwork and seem to be rather good at it. Keep it up :)

Unfortunately, a lot of the artwork I commission for this story project probably gets shared without credit or links on FB groups.
That's a bit upsetting, to be honest. But hopefully SOMEONE you saw post this image credited it properly, and that brought you here!

Thanks! Glad you liked the designs. While I came up with the main elements of the outfits, the designs didn't have a physical form until artists portrayed them.

These images were used as primary reference for this piece:

Toph's design from the neck down is based on the groupshot above, but her hat/hair style were borrowed from this piece after I got approval from the artist: lovelyrugbee.tumblr.com/post/4…

No, not in this particular universe. That would defeat the point of the story. ;)

Nope, she can't. She's a completely blind person in this story, but still has a lot of the same personality, which creates some interesting storytelling to experiment with.

She does still have a very acute talent, though, which is with music -- she can sing, play piano, and play guitar pretty well. This is a more grounded ability that real-life people can have, and many of the characters have hobbies or talents to that effect.

This is cute! Are they drinking hot chocolate? I thought about doing a group picture of my original characters seated around a campfire and some have a cup of hot chocolate in their hands.

Technically, Toph is drinking tea, Katara is drinking coffee, and Aang is drinking hot cocoa. =)

Thanks! The clothing designs here have come together over the course of time as I've worked with a few artists.
The main designs originated in this piece I had Hoodsun make: destiny-smasher.deviantart.com...
Katara's winter design was further refined in this image: sakura-rose12.deviantart.com/a...
And the hat/hair for Toph was inspired by this piece by Lovelyrugby: lovelyrugbee.tumblr.com/post/4...

If you like these clothing designs, you might also like some of the other SRU artworks where they are in clothes for other parts of the year/occasions. The full art gallery for the story is over here: destiny-smasher.deviantart.com...

Yes, SRU is a series I've put a lot of work, time, and thought into, and a lot of the artwork, when looked at side by side as a gallery, helps show this.
Thankfully, I've been able to work with wonderful artists who bring their talent to the table, like Nymre did for this one.

It stands for Saint Roku University. It's a modern-day story inspired by Avatar that eventually incorporates themes and characters from both ATLA and LOK into an original story.
You can read it here: [link] or on FF.net here: [link]

There are links in this pictures description to places where more art of it can be found.
