Azula: Princess of Fire by kelly1412 Azula: Princess of Fire by kelly1412
*face adjust and size up, version 2
can't believe it already got 1000 favo, you're Awesome guys! Thank you for loving her~

I finally finished this big piece...I started it last month (you may see the part reveiw couple of weeks ago [link]) but I was too busy to finish it after that.
Canít really remember how much time it cost me (those fire nearly killed me...)...probably the most complicated one in this years. I'm happy I finally did a serious piece for my favorite princess. :love:

Six month ago, I did my very first piece of Princess Azula [link] and that recorded my first impression of her. At that time, my most favorite female character from the show was still Toph, but as I draw her more, I feel there are too much can be draw; as I read her deeper, I was totolly fasinated by this amazing character.

Drawing other character is fun, but drawing her is kind of suffering...because she's such a tragic character. She wears a mask called "perfect" to cover all her loneness, fear and sadness. She once had everything but end up with nothing. All of those contrast making the drawing experience full of pain, sour, sympathy... Like higher you jump, more painful when you hit the ground. BUT, itís addicting too. I just canít stop drawing her...

Azula needs love!! If no one loves her, let me be the one.

I know she may looks bit OOC (out of character) in my style, but that's my perspective of princess Azula. Their are planty works out there to show her powerful, crazyness and threatening, which is part of her attraction too. But for me, I'd more like to present her perfection and mighty power, beauty and elegent as a menber of royalty, which not many people seems willing to draw. but I just love that, a true princess who got something she born with. whereas, perfect and tragic at the same time.

I love it! As much as I love crazy Azula, it's nice to see her in one of her more calm moments. I think she dressed the way she did most of the time to A: try to show her father that she could be the heir the the throne (she started wearing her standard outfit while zuko was still in line), she probably wanted to wear something very similar to Zuko to show that she can be just as capable as the first born son, if not more so. B: Because it's, of course, more practical to firebend in. C: Because all the past fire lords wore it, so she does too.

I actually think she looks much more like Ursa in this painting. maybe a moment of grief (she'd probably see it as weakness) over her mother? I feel like her expression could be interpreted two ways, she's either wanting respite from the violence and ambition, or experiencing one of her few senitimental moments; or she's looking at you saying 'I can be just as deadly in a dress as I am in armor'

Whatever the reason, I love the painting. (your flames are amazing.)

Poor Azula. All she wanted was to feel accepted, connected to someone.

Oh my god, it's so different from every single picture of Azula that's floating around in my head... Her eyes... they are so innocent and almost happy... It's wonderful ^^
