Mother and Daughter _ Ursa x Azula by kelly1412 Mother and Daughter _ Ursa x Azula by kelly1412
A piece for Mother's day.
Tumblr [link]

I've been drawing Avatar fanarts for a year and Azula is obviously the one I draw most. I was asked if Azula is my favorite character. NO, she's not. She's not my favorite character, she's like my daughter. That means even if she is such a negative and aggressive figure, but even though I can't appreciate her actions, I still love her.

I thought I would never do Ursa with Azula arts, 'cuz I thought that Ursa didn't love Azula in the first place, but now I think I can understand Ursa's feeling as a mother. It's never imaginable for a mother to not love her child, and what had happened between them is still unclear.

I really cried when I was drawing this, so much emotion flowed forth that I could barely carry on. I put all I've felt and understood here, hope it can translate to you.

I'm not going to finish this piece, unless something like this really happened in the show.

All done in Photoshop CS3, Bamboo one

See the one for father's day

More digital ink painting style

This is beautiful! The only caption that comes to mind in this is "Mommy's here"... :'(
This makes me want to put an Ursa & Azula fan art on my 'Things To Do' list.

I believe Ursa still loved her, despite everything.

Beautiful drawing, can't stand Ursa and keeping up with The Search comic is why.  Azula is my favorite female character (and Toph).  I feel like Azula is heavily misunderstood, she suffers from some strong insecurities that her mother may be the root of and if certain things were done differently, she'd be a different character.

This is beautiful, I know Ursa loved Azla but because of Azula's cruel nature she pushed Ursa away.
