Another *early* sketch of Aang and proto-Momo, from April 1, 2002. At the time, I didn’t know exactly how this “sky shepherd” kid could perch in the clouds like this, but I just let the ideas work themselves out on the paper, and Mike and I would ask questions later. This was drawn when the loose concept had much more of a sci-fi angle to it. Mike and I changed course on that fairly early — then Momo took his winged lemur form. It would take a little while longer for Aang’s staff to lose its “mech” appearance. #avatarthelastairbender #originalseries #conceptart #sketch #aang #momo
