The Special Element by siquia The Special Element by siquia
Many people ask if Bumi isn't actually Sokka's son and Katara had given birth to him by mistake.

Also, it's punny.

-------

Been working on this for days because I got so lazy to finish. I played around with the designs of Katara, Aang, King Bumi (who looks like Bumi 2 anyway), Ikki, and Meelo since we only have the oldie versions of Kya, Bumi, and Tenzin. I stuck with cel-shading to be faithful to the show. Kya and Bumi's clothes I sort of just went with random pieces until it looked traditional-y but modern-er than ATLA generation's clothes and Tenzin's attire is a mix of Aang's and Meelo's monk robes.

I honestly can't believe no one's thought of this yet. It came to me after having not slept for 2 days, which is usually when terrible jokes like to pop in and say hi.

Backstory comic coming up, as soon as the little dwarf in my head moves his ancient ass.

I think in The Legend of Korra there is a statue of Sokka with his space sword. I don't remember which episode though ;/

As much as I'd love to, this is about a year old and whatever process it went through is now lost in my mind. It had a lot to do with painting tho, if that helps at all :iconotlplz:

Man, this is epic beyond words. I love your interpretations on kids Kya, Bumi and Tenzin. I especially love the first pannel with Kya and the painterly look of the wave she's bending. Awesome, awesome work!
