Casually emerging from the depths of sleeplessness just to cripple you with feels.

I recommend you download it, because it's 5003 x 708px and the DA preview does not do it justice.

What I liked: The strokes and colors for the background transition very fluidly, as does the ground which the characters stand on; The movement through the ages is very identifiable, meaning you can clearly see the resemblance to the other characters, as is the relation of the characters to each other for the most part; looking closer, the strokes are very defined, the colors are vibrant, meaning you couldn't mistake the artwork for black-and-white, and the detail shows clear thought of how the characters would be through their ages; The Emotion in the piece is captivating and makes the last shot hit pretty hard.
What I think you can improve on: If someone, not knowing anything about Avatar:The Last Airbender, saw this they would likely assume they were a couple rather than brother and sister. two things you could have done are put the mother in the first slide to show their relation or put Aang in the third and show Katara's relation to him; Because it's from a widely popular series, it loses some of its originality and It loses more from the fact that it's done in a common "aging man" style.
How I saw it overall:This art form is Not one you'd usually see in The Avatar Fan group and It's a beautiful piece. Good Work.

Wow, this is amazing. I'm not a huge avatar fan, but my sister is. Thus, I've seen every episode at least twice. This is great because it links Avatar with Korra. (I know they were both avatars, I'm talking about the different shows) Not only that, but it's just straight-up good looking! You did a great job with the water tribe clothing, and by the way you did the ground you can tell they went back home before Sokka died. This is an emotional piece of work, also. However, If I had done this, I would have taken out the panel at the end, and continued the line, but the last one being without Sokka there. Still, I didn't make it so, great job!

You probably have heard this a lot but I honestly had tears in my eyes watching fhis. It's such a powerful image of a walk cycle of siblings growing up and it's ending is just too heartbreaking but touching at the same time to handle. It hits right where the feels starts if we all have that one sibling we connect better than words could describe.

The only thing left that Katara has to do is take care of Korra. 
I believe this wiki might shed some light on what happened to the avatar cast following the end of the first series.

Just plain wonderful, the feel, the depth, the passion! Truth be I have no idea really where to begin! You can feel the characters grow, not just by the art changing the ages, but by the movement and body language that is there. The end image, chokes me up......I need to stumble more through the deviant search engine more often, you never know what sorta hidden gems like this you will find!
