SRU - Happy Holidays by Destiny-Smasher SRU - Happy Holidays by Destiny-Smasher
I've been hoarding this one for months, waiting for the appropriate time to upload it!

The ever-brilliant Hoodsun :iconhoodsun: actually took on two commissions at once back during the summer, and this winter-themed piece rounds out his seasonal-themed groupshots for :icons-r-u:

From left to right, the five main characters of my AtLA/LoK AU story, 'What I Learned at SRU': Sokka, Toph, Katara, Aang, and Jane 'Smellerbee.' The story can be read here: [link] The full art gallery can be found at the DA group or at this project's Facebook page, here: [link]

There's a lot I'm thankful for in 2012, moreso than any other year in my life so far. One of things I am most grateful for is the support I have received in this project, and the feedback I get from you readers every week. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and reply to the story I've been telling for over two years now.

Happy Holidays to you all!

The rest of the beautiful SRU pics Hoodsun has done:



And this artist's own AU pic that inspired me to start working with him in the first place!

The first impression is really brilliant, you can feel the emotions you want to convey, you can read the face and eyes of the characters in Avatar, and feel joy, happiness.
The light, shade and everything is very well done, the colored lights, moving lines and ice notches, really everything is drawn to detail.
The perspective, the proportions and expressions are perfect, are very successful, great. It looks like they are moving, and moving forward and that's a tall order, but this picture shows that he does not.
Everything is perfect, you would be unable to find any flaws or criticism, because I could not imagine it any other way.
What do you think?

Why is Smeller Bee always in there?  She's not really part of their inner group.

She is in this story. An interpretation of Korra is, too.
So you definitely haven't read the story.

Although, really, this story is more about a group inspired by the Gaang and ATLA/LOK characters, not specifically them. It's much more an original story than a fanfic, I guess.

Haha. This artist has consistently done a good job at portraying an older Aang who looks definitely older, but still recognizable in his facial features.
If you haven't yet, you should check out these other pictures this artist has done for this story with Aang in them:

Toph in skates just seems funny. In a good way though, I can see her clinging to sokka screaming "don't let me fall, or I'll bury you six feet under!" as they try to teach her to skate. :P

I've always wondered if aang would have wore a penis euphemism shirt at SRU, considering it's a easy joke to make with the air nomad arrow.

Something like:

(black shirt blue arrow, pointing down shirt white words)
The man
the avatar
the last airbender

Wow...i'm surprised Toph agreed to that xD No Zuko? :[

Destiny-Smasher Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
You must not be a reader of the story. ^_^;;
Zuko is a notable side character, but not a main character.
I could list off multiple reasons for why, but bottom line is that's why he's not here, or in other primary groupshots. You will see a number of artworks of him in the full gallery, though.

No I thought you were just doing fanart of the series and just thought you were a big fan of Smellerbee which is why she was included...yeahhhh >.>

Haha, well, the SRU series has a lot of art of this interpretation of Smellerbee, because she is one of the main characters. ;P

you'd think toph would be scared to death going ice skating, wouldn't you agree?
she looks happy, but maybe she's screaming "Get me out of here!!" in the inside.
