Let the devil sleep (Azula) by kelly1412 Let the devil sleep (Azula) by kelly1412
This is one of two Azula fanarts I made by myself that I love. This artwork was made in a Goal, I've written the background below, please read if you're interested.

First, I hope this drawing can comfort people who have been hurt by the latest leaked comic page from "promise3", in which Azula finally makes an appearence but she's being treated savagely.… (beware of spoiler)

This is just too painful to watch!!! I'm seriously hurt!!!
Thank you for all your comfort and telling me to look on the bright side. I sincerely thank you for your kindness....
But...I'm afraid that words don't really help me out of this... There are 1000 reasons to cry for the sadness and there are 1001 assumptions that things will get better.
But it isn't about reasons, it's about emotion. Just like being cut by a knife, it immediately starts bleeding and feeling excruciatingly painful!! This is just a pure physical reaction and can't be prevented or negated by any logic or reason.
I'm hurt and in pain now, that's all, whatever Gene's gonna do or whatever we might be able to see in the future of the story doesn't change the way I feel right now!

I tend to still keep a positive outlook and hope for the best, believing that the Search will be a great story and everything will become better. But no matter what reason, I can't take more plotlines like this.

I normally hate being ridiculous.
But forgive me this time:
If you support my Azula and Avatar fanart, and don't want to see my future works influenced by a broken heart, please contact geneluenyang on twitter and tell him that Azula needs to be treated fairly and deserves a happy ending, though please be sure to say it in a polite and rational manner.

Please let her sleep rather than being ruined.


Wai...t... did I.... Just.... OMG!!!! I got a DD!!!!!!! I don't deserve it and I Can't be happier!!
I was dreamed about DD but never expected one lovely :heart: shinning under my art.
and Being feature beside such obviously talented artworks is so flattering.
I can't say it's an excellence art, and I can't believe after almost half year absent from dA, still someone remember me and my works. This means much to me than a DD *tearbend*
I feel I got the courage and desire to draw again, no matter what is happening in reality.
Drawing is part of my life and so you are.

I never expected a cosplay base on this piece, but AlevBlack did an amazing job and made it beyond beautiful!!~

I'm not usually a fan of this sort of art style, but you make it look beautiful and this picture is amazing.
I love your Azula artwork, she's my favourite female villain.

Since you're searching for a happy ending with Azula, I got one for you: Look out for the fanfiction "Measure Each Step to Infinity" by paxbanana on - I think this one would be to your liking.

I just hope she can, somehow, get a happy ending.

Beautiful picture!
Azula is one of my favourite villains and this picture really suits her :)

While I didn't love Azula, I definitely admired her. Sure she was the bad character and has never done one single thing that's morally correct her whole life. She threatens people, manipulates them and is awfully cruel. But even so, her strong personality, great leadership skills and bounding self confidence make her one of my most loved villains. Its easy to understand why she has become who she is. She is also the firelord child and as Zuko, she has to be on her best behavior impress people, show no weakness and thats just how she has grown up. She never had a kind and wise guardian like Uncle Iroh
