Prize_Last Tear by kelly1412 Prize_Last Tear by kelly1412
Prize for :iconkwani: for winning my special bonus sketch in the holleween contest, hold by :iconroyal-siblings:

~Kwani challenge me to present a moment that Azula is captured in a quiet cell, and treading in the whirlpool of emotions that she felt. Anger, misery, fear, and boredom.. she tries to warm herself in the dark cold cell by making a small fire...
what a complicated mood, but worth to try :) hopefully i captured some of them...

quite contrastive from the last one ^^;

--------------------------------------------
PS: you may be able to see some scene like this in my comic in future (if I really going to do it)...
But I truly don't want to see any scene/narrative like this in LOK or further comics... never ever!!!

...you know, before the graphic novels "The Promise" and "The Search", I thought that Azula was NOT going to have a happy ending: I thought Aang was most likely going to do to Azula what he did to Ozai: take her bending away. Why?
1) she is one of, if not the, most powerful firebender in the world,
2) she is not only evil, but has also gone completely nuts,
3) she is extremely dangerous,considering that the only people able to hold her off are Aang, Zuko, Katara and possibly Iroh.
Now, the only two solutions to neutralize once and for all the threat Azula poses are either kill her or take her bending. And given that Zuko would never purposely kill her no matter what, and neither would Aang because he believes in non violence, in my mind Azula was doomed to live the rest of her life in a dark cell at the Boiling Rock or in some mental asylum, stripped of everithing that made her who she was, firebending included. Much like Ozai.
I'm glad that "The Search" proved me wrong, although it's not over yet. Let's just hope she somehow gets her happy ending, even though she looks still pretty unrecoverable...

Can I ask you something? Why are such a big fan of Azula? I'm not criticizing, I actually find it interesting... She is the bad "guy" in the whole story, so why such love for this character? Just wondering...




Btw, AMAZING DRAWING. again...:P

Good question.
I was wondering the same thing.
luckily, I used to record my thoughts with my art (ignore my poor English), so hope these three descriptions could answer ur question, and please read them in order. [link] [link] [link]
I didn't like her that much at first place, but the more I draw her, the more I was hooked. It's more like an emotionally engage rather than rationally.

Wow...

That was an amazing description. I mean, I'm an emotinal person, so I could really understand what you wrote... It is beautiful what you feel. You have this connection with a character, like somehow, she's really alive..I get that, believe me :)

Oh, please keep drawing Azula and all others characters. Your style is clear and pure ^^ i love it :)keep me posted, please.

I actually don't know why I love her so much now, anyway it is an amazing experience, so I don't think it's necessary to find a reason :XD:

yes, no matter how others view her, I'll always by her side.

this is one of the best of your arts,! I really like the style and affectation, and the idea, and Azula, too^^ my favorite art of all arts with Azula! "WOW, WOW, WOW" - was my first reaction!

it`s a pity, that I did not know English so well as we would like! If I was from English-speaking countries and English would be my first language, I would repay you for all your arts all the good words that would know!
...and, can I ask..Is Azula your favorite character?

Thank you for all you comment. you don't need to be a native english speaker, cuz i'm not too. and I already can feel you emotion form you words!
Thank you very much, it means a lot to me!!
if you say this is you favorite I, I'd really consider you a true fan of Azula.~ :D
to answer your question.
no, Azula is not my favorite character, she's my lovely daughter!!! :love::love::love:

I'm not a real fan Of Azula, I love all the characters :) Azula is a very interesting person for me .. I have exact same once wrote a huge argument about Azula (IMHO) it`s a pity that you do not know Russian, if you know Russian, I would have you showed my delirium: D
oo, Azulais a very interesting character ... :)

"and may I suggest my favorite piece I've done for her so far? [link] (bit sad though) hope you like it"

Yes, I liked it So much) I like all your arts, you are very talented .. sorry that I was not blessed with the talent of drawing> <To be honest, I registered here just to watch your new arts and comment :) but I am afraid to comment on them because I was afraid to be ignorant or mistaken in the structure of supply, or allow a spelling error ..) but I plucked up courage and decided)

Then you much be very good at review characters.
I can't say I like Azula, cus she is not a good person from any aspect. But I love her character development, so deep and rich. I feel the more I draw her, the more I can understand and love her. badly I can't read russian, otherwise I'd really love to read your article.

my english is very bad, and hips of spelling and grammar error, I was very ashame, but lots of my dear watchers they help me to correct my english, which made me had courage to keep speaking out and making communication. so please don't worries about the language issue, at least you're better than me. you're very welcome to l

Oh, really? it is really interesting to know.
I don't have the plan to remake it, cuz I haven't got more feeling of it yet. But I'll take it into consideration, so I may go back to it later on.
if you like sad scene of Azula, "After AgniKai-dead end" [link] is my farovite work so far amount all I've done.It's an old piece of comic, but still hard to exceed (personal opinion as well :D)

It’s good as well but for me this one is the absolute fav! I don’t know I have a thing for pretty girls sad moments. And for girls looking themselves strong but deep inside they really need love/care… that’s why I love Azula, and it’s the same for Nova (star craft ghost). My two fav character ever!

I feel the exactly the same, I also love these kind girls.
but Azula is a special case amount them. There is something emotional made her very special for me.

Oh yeah she is special… the conqueror of Ba Sing Se, Fire nation prodigy , the best fireblender of the word, and yet still a lonely little girl betrayed by her family and friends, who needs love and understanding… oh yes something really special, for me.

If you haven’t read it yet and you really love these kind of stories I recommend for you Keith R.A DeCandido Star Craft Ghost Nova. My fav book, for all times, about another lonely but strong little girl.

I also love the point for her identity: A royal member, which made all the fact and sadness you mention above become a nevitable fate. It just made the character even more tragic when she lot every thing. :cries:

Thank you for the recommend, I'll read it when I has time.

I thought her bending haven't been took away. but anyway i didn't think about this point when i was doing it. I just need the blue flame to tell her identity, otherwise she maybe diffecult to recogize in this style ^^;

:iconzutaraxmylove:
zutaraxmylove Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011  Student Filmographer
well her bending wasnt taken away but she shouldnt be allowed to bend anyways because she went crazy and was locked away.
for a locked up azula, i think what makes sense would be this.
there are other ways like her bangs uneven because she cut them or more red and black colors?
i dont know.
i like detail and critique
Reply
:iconkelly1412:
kelly1412 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love detail and critique~ thank you for that~

Most of my attention while doing this is on her expression. and try not to think about the words like "breakdown" or "locked", cus it still hurts me. what i wanted to present is her pathetic rather than craziness, cus I just can't face that side. It may be an escape, but i seem still didn't prepare to fully accept the ending.

for the hair, sorry i know i made a mistake on it but I was too lazy to change ^^; how about just take it as it grows back (hey! don't make rediculous excuse

:iconzutaraxmylove:
zutaraxmylove Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011  Student Filmographer
no problem!

pathetic works too. as long as we know its her, it's ok
well the hair was just a suggestion, not mistake.
her hair can grow back depending around what time period you decided to draw her in.
if it was right after the show, then yes her bangs are uneven.
but if its a couple months or years later, then uneven is not necessary. all up to u

You definitely captured the emotion. I love the little things, like the hem and cut of her shirt which indicates prison garb and the small corner that personifies the mental corner she's locked herself in, and the shackles. Ironically it's the shackled hand that's lighting the fire, which is the only color of the piece, and kind of the last hope.

It reminds me of Emily Dickinson's "Hope is the thing" and the line from Trading Yesterday's "Shattered": "All this time spent in vain/ wasted years, wasted gain/ All is lost, Hope remains". The next line of the song is "And this war's not over", but the title "Last Tear" indicates a conclusion; whether this conclusion is one of defeat or renewed rebellion...well, we'll see in the comic! I await eagerly! :)
