A:CtS - Line Em Up by Ai-Bee A:CtS - Line Em Up by Ai-Bee
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.

"The most simple of gestures with the most vast of consequences."



:bulletpurple: Atka (At-ka) | (Northern) Water Tribe, Nonbender | 6' 0", 34
A laid back pirate and comrade of Rilu's. Somehow it's always him to bail Rilu out of most tight spots. He tends to find the little things in life the most enjoyable, and goes wherever the wind takes him. He has a fondness for rich colors, fabrics, and jewelry. A gaudy pirate indeed.

:bulletred: Yrai (Yuh-Rye) | Fire Nation, Bender | 5'11", 27
Hot-tempered and grouchy, her childhood revolved heavily around the military and influenced her upbringing, so she is not the most gentle or forgiving. Despite her short fuse getting her into trouble, she usually has the fire-power to back it up.

:bulletyellow: Ti Jinh "TJ" (Tee-Jinn) | Sand Tribe, Bender | 5'9", 24
A calm, gentle young man with a stoic but hopeful look about him. He's solitary and passive unless it's not on his behalf, where his bravery really shines. He works as a blacksmith and glassblower, one of his favorite hobbies.

:bulletgreen: Sei'Zin "Sei" (Say-zinn) | Earth Kingdom, Nonbender | 5'5", 18
Eeriely quiet and unnerving with her unblinking stare, Sei is one of Kye's assassin comrades. She is a skilled medic, herbologist, and is one of their fastest members. She is usually seen with her catowl companion, Ootu. She's actually rather sarcastic when she opens her mouth.

:bulletblue: Rilu (Ree-loo) | (Northern) Water Tribe, Bender | 5' 4", 22
Rilu's got a knack for pick-pocketing and a bottomless appetite FOR ADVENTURE. She'll swindle some poor sap out of just about anything if she's got her eye on it, but is quick to slip out before things get ugly like a true skiddish pirate. Naturally, she attracts chaos wherever she goes because she can't help but get herself into trouble.




Well, since Ty's being all super-duper and drawing my CtS babies and getting me all amped about redesigns, I thought I'd contribute and line up my lot. This is a pretty quick piece, messy lines and flat colors, but it was insanely nice to draw them again after so long. Many look drastically different from before if you've been around a while. 8| And some barely had any screentime at all. *pats Yrai and Atka and Sei kinda too* And Rilu is most shamelessly getting porkier, yes. Why. Y'wanna fight about it?? PUNK

art/chasing the sun (c) me and *Tyshea
done in SAI, added text in potatoshop 7.

Check out Ty's amazing arts of some of these guys!

(Yrai and Sei will happen soon too)

Thanks for all the comments, faves, and watches! :love: Got quite a few sketchdumps bursting at the seams to be posted soon.

I mentioned this over one on of Ty's deviations, but TJ is a total cutie and I think he is my favourite. :blowkiss:

Also, I like Rilu's physique, and the way you guys draw her so that she carries herself so well. Also knowing how muscled/strong she is... It's just really cool to have a character like that! Yay for diversity in body types uwu

Ahhh, A TJ fan! :love: That makes me so happy oh gosh! He'll probably get all uncomposed to hear that. :giggle:

Yay for bodytypes! I can't wait till I get even more bold/diverse with them! I'm really loving Rilu more every time I draw her more curvy- it's so true to her character. She's a tiny, headstrong tank/powerhouse. Looking at her oldest concepts feel like a different character practically :lol:
Thank you!

IDK some of their (and Ty's OCs) personalities make them very unattractive sometimes/to certain people 8I Then again I'm pretty sure people are gonna like even the most heartless of our assassin characters so *THROWS UP HANDS*

THANK YOU :heart:

I got my "Jesus sandals" (as my friends call them) at a music festival after destroying the shoes I showed up with, and they are now my go-to summer shoes. So comfy, and such fun.

Random info for if you ever turn these folks into a story, rope sandals can be quite slippery since they don't have much by way of soles. So you can basically drift around corners on slick floors. Or else wind up on your rear end if you aren't careful. ;) (Grinding sand into the bottoms helps improve the grip, but they still slide all over.)

I love making her squishier, if there's one thing rilu is meant to be, it's husky and curvy.
She'd probably pop all the vertebra in your back with a hug but it'd feel great! :D

And in Ty's pic of Rilu I had to lol at her description. She sounds awesome. I love yours too xD
If you guys make a story with these guys I would follow you like a hawk... Which might considered terrifying really as I kinda do it to you both anyway xD
Your character designs are so amazing OTL

AWW REALLY THAT MAKES ME HAPPY :eager:
I/we can't take Rilu seriously most of the time... because she can't take anything seriously either |D

We really do wanna make a story with them, I mean, we already kind of have one? But it's really something we started for fun and we keep revisiting/rewriting it after ages of inactivity 8| So it's kind of off and on as for a project we'd seriously pursue. But maybe someday... @A@
