Yes, Iroh did heat the water with his firebending, which caused the bubbles.
It is nice to see that Ty Lee is appreciated. I was a little worried about her face design, on one hand the one that I have made for her looks almost identical to Katara, but on the other people occasionally find LEGO eyes with sclera a bit creepy.
I know, it’s not exactly the grandest of my builds. But it is a bit special, in the way that the figures aren’t that easy to reuse in other builds, they are strongly connected with the beach setting. Although with a little tweaking they might be able to be used as Fire Nation civilians.
I deliberately made the beach gray. I originally wanted to make it yellow like the beaches of the classic pirate sets because I don’t have all that much tan, but all the reference pictures I used had the beach in a very gray color. Figuring that it might be of a volcanic nature, I just went ahead and made it gray.
Yes, the light in the prison pictures is pretty bright because I used the flash on the camera. The light was a bit dim, and I wanted people to be able to see Ozai inside the cell. This also carried over to the other pictures for better or for worse.
I’m thinking of a way to make a better picture of Iroh’s training, I’ll see what I can do about it.
I have improved Ozai’s face a bit; it’s more evenly yellow now. There are two reasons for the sloppy yellow: 1) I was afraid to smudge the colors 2) the rather yellow light bulbs in my living room does not make it easier to see the uneven color, so I first really noticed it on the photo.
Again, thanks for the comments.
After a little rebuild of the cell and some experimentation with various angles and light sources i took this picture of Iroh’s training.
I would say it is an improvement over the old picture. On the other hand it probably couldn’t get much worse than it was.
