SRU: What I Need by tissine SRU: What I Need by tissine

izz also posted on tumblr! :heart:

Depicting Aang, Korra, and Jane 'Smellerbee' from a scene from Chapter 92 of =Destiny-Smasher's ATLA/LoK alternate universe series, 'What I Learned at SRU.' This scene evokes strong thematic resemblance to a scene from the episode 'The Southern Raiders,' but with a different context.
"She needs this, Aang," Korra firmly concluded. "Her whole life was screwed over because of this cock-sucker. This is about getting...closure, and...and justice."

Aang's brow twitched defiantly at Korra's words.

"I don't think so," he disagreed. "I think it's about getting revenge."

"Fine!" seethed Jane, discomforted by Aang's lack of approval. "Maybe it is," she confessed darkly, flinging her shoulders up, fed up by where this talk had led. "Maybe that's what I need. Maybe that's what he deserves..."

Trying out different style of rendering. I personally love how this turned out! Thanks for commissioning me! :heart:

It's beautiful, I couldn't see the Southern
Raiders any other way.

wait.. Jane is Smellerbee?

Yes, in this universe, my interpretation of Smellerbee is a red-head named Jane, and 'Smellerbee' is her gang name when she runs with the Freedom Fighters gang (because Smellerbee is just not something I see someone naming their kid, haha). You can see a whole ton of artwork of this version of Smellerbee in the SRU gallery. Some people draw her more intentionally like Smellerbee, which I like, such as this artist: [link]

I haven't read up to that point in SRU yet, but Tissine this is pretty sweet. Jane is so intense. What did you use to make this? Do you use a drawing tablet or is this some other thing I don't know about. I've never done any graphic art, but I'd like to after seeing all the awesome stuff people have put up.

Thank you! It was drawn and rendered digitally. I used a graphic tablet and drew on Photoshop CS6. A slight color effect was applied to make Jane look intense :)
