Dead End _ After AgniKai by kelly1412 Dead End _ After AgniKai by kelly1412
this is another one of the two alternate ending after the Final Agni kai.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Emotionally, i'd wish Azula could live to the end and repent herself, so i drew the "good end" *[link]


But rationally, i think a dead end maybe more fits this character. Because Azula was born for power maybe it's her fate to die for it. without power, pride and ambition, she is not Azula anymore.

As a perfect royal family member, I believe there are two things that she cares most. one is power, the throne; one is country, her nation. so even she lost her throne, she should still remember her people and the glory of the country. that's how i made up this story...

drawing this really hurt me... I almost gave up halfway... I've spend bloody time on it as well. however the out comes satisfied me a lot. it is what I wanted, though I'm not sure if all of my emotion could delivery properly.
personally, It's my most favorite piece of A:TLA fanart I've done so far...

I've been a fan of A:TLA since it started, I think 8 years ago. From the start, Azula was my favorite character, and even though, I still wanted her to die at the end for the same reason as you did.
Amazing and fantastic job on the ART.

I love this. Azula's my favorite character in ATLA, she is just so...unlike any other character out there. And I think the rivalry between her and Zuko is so intense and awesome...honestly, I think the storyline between them was far more epic and emotional than the main storyline of Aang vs. Ozai.

Wouldn't that be epic if Zuko was actually able to properly redirect that bolt he jumped in front of, and this was the aftermath? :omfg: Both endings are great, but I like how this is perfectly portrays Azula coming to grips with reality for what is probably the first time in her entire life.

Wow...I can't even...

I think my best comment would be to agree w/ :iconariannathekeybearer:. I believe that despite all he's been through, Zuko does still care for Azula. It's just a matter of trying to get her to change, if that were possible....

Wonderful artwork, even though it's a sad story...

i really feel in a dilemma of this issue, one the one hand i'd like Azula to have a second change to become good, but on the other hand, all these contrast and sad aspects make this character incredible fantastic.

This is just.... Wow... This brings out deeper meaning than just hating Azula for almost killing Aang and almost killing Zuko as well.. I never thought of it like this, but in the end, it makes sense, it fits.. It's a weird fit but it fits, and.. My chest hurts a bit from looking at it. In the end they were siblings, even if you hated someone to the death, only blind anger could lead you to kill your own sibling.. That's why its sad. We may hate our brothers and sisters, but in the end we still love them, that truth is brought here.

your review is so move! I'm so glad you got exactly the emotion i want to deliver. I think Azula is not born evil, but be taught in that way, she definitly got some unreleased background story with her family members that result in her complicate personality. She seems having everything but end up with nothing. such a dramatic and tragedy character. That's why I love this her, although she is terribly bad, but I still can't move my eyes off her.

I agree. I support the theory that Azula was not born evil, but brainwashed into evil. Because of this, I even wrote an episode that was part of my post-script continuation of the series.

this piece of work actually is my most favorite ATLA fanart I've done so far. although not many favs. but it doesn't matter. I did cry during the drawing and almost give up halfway. but hopefully it not really made you cry, otherwise, it's too sad...

I like this ending too. I never thought about how she wouldn't be herself without her pride and ambition. Interesting, and probably very true.

I hate draw hand myself! it is one of the most difficult part to draw.
here are 2 tips may be helpful. :)
learning general hand structure and always pay attantion to perspective.
use reference or take a photo when you are not sure of one pose.

If you didn't know,in Sozin's comet book interview on page 63, Bryan and Brian said Azula wasn't born evil. She really felt Ursa didn't love her as much as Zuko and it drove her crazy. Her repressed emotions and jelousies made her evil. The war exacerbated her problems but Zuko and Katara spared her life. It is possible that she may heal. Great work!
