Snow by Matereya Snow by Matereya
“Many of the warriors have seen the black snow before, and they knew what it meant: a Fire Nation raid”


*DUNN DUNN DUNN*

Yet another super - late submission for Zutara month - “Snow”

This is the moment I started to ship these two. Not since “I’ll save you from the pirates”, not since “Crossroads of Destiny” and not since “Southern Raiders” either. In my crazy fangirlish headcanon, it started way back - since the moment they actually saw each other for the first time - when he attacked her village.

I know it might sound crazy (and it didn’t actually happen in the series), but oh well…it’s my freaking fangirl mind that’s running wild all the time ;XD

I initially designed it as a manga strip, in hope that one day I’ll have the guts (and time) to continue my Zutara doujinshi.

I hope you all like it :)

Oh my, I am in love with this! It's so intense. I love their eyes. His are so piercing. I love Zutara so much! This is one of the best I have seen, so much emotion is conveyed in the way they look at each other! <3 I also really like that he is wearing his helmet. It looks BA. Please continue this!

Oh wow thank you so much! :love:
As I said before, I'm really into conveying emotions and words through eyes, I think it's fascinating, and I'm glad I succeeded in doing so with this drawing :D

This piece is actually one large panel from my future Zutara webcomic/doujinshi. I already wrote the script and wanted to start working on it, but I'm too busy with school at the moment so I guess it's gonna get delayed ^^;

Since I don't have time to dwell on different aspects of the drawing, I feel that the least I can do is to work on their expressions (I think it's very important) and convey the message through their eyes. Well, glad to know it worked :D

It might sound mean of me to say it - but I really dislike the way she's drawn in the first and second books. It's not like she's ugly or something, but she looks way prettier in book 3 :love: So I tried to make her look "better" and more graceful in my own rendition ^^

"Queen of Light" - I like the way it sounds :XD:
And I seriously need to find some time and draw it soon, most of it is already written and my fingers are getting itchy from waiting so long (school is killing me and I wish I had more time =_= ).
Thank you!! :love: :glomp: :blowkiss:
