I'm trying to train my sense of back lighting and contrast ... use dark color in a right way is really difficult....Orz
the full size looks ok... but the thumbnail somehow looks terrible =__=

I actually prefer the lineart bit more, here is the link [link]

Thank you for os-cordis, they cos this scene for me in Melbourne Manifest 2011 [link] it was soooooooooo awesome!!!

----- the following thoughts may destroy the beauty of this image, pls note *_* ------

book3. Ep.56 The Southern Raiders is the episode that I can't understand most:
why they use a revenge story as the end of the preparation before making the final "justice" strack. ( Ep57 "The Ember Island Players" is more like a whole show review, almost nothing matter with the main story line.)

I can understand Zuko helps sokka to rescue his father.
but I can't understand why he helps Katara to make a revenge, and it took place right before the final war, I mean they should be mature already by then cuz they are going to play the hero role very soon. This revenge makes me doubt their righteousness. ( although Aang said something rational...)
in the end of the ep. Katara says that she don't know if she's too weak to kill the man or strong enough not to... it feels like power is the way to judge justice...

you could argue that they need this to learn Forgiveness, and finally accept Zuko. but no matter what the result is... dose that means at the beginning Zuko intent to gain his forgiveness by sacrificing an other person's life?

I know it's pretty radical thoughts, but I couldn't think in a more reasonable way.
I'm not blaming the character, I'm just feel a bit confused by the episode itself.

so... therefore I come up with this scene that Zuko trys to stop Katara from being dizzy with anger. and makes another way to let her rage out.

anyway, these are all my unserious thoughts. hope they could learn the true meaning of Forgiveness and Zuko could forgive his sister afterwords ( <--hey, this is your real point, right?...XDDD)

Adore this work. I have to agree with your comment, The Southern Raiders left a lot to be explained and I wish the writers would have elaborated more on Zuko/Katara's relationship.

This is so gorgeous and the feels of this picture of Zuko and Katara, its incredible.

Honestly, I thought the episode was there so that Katara could get closure, or at least a taste of it. Because if you've noticed, the entire show had a reoccurring theme that went back to her mother, so it was only rational to add an episode that could help Katara with that.
Also, the really big thing in that episode that connected to the series final fight was when Zuko asked Aang at the end, "What're you gonna do when you face my father?" That question really got the views, as well as Aang thinking deeply about it.

I like this so Zuko is a little...short compared to Katara who is near his height
and Zuko is typically pretty tall

I think the lighting looks pretty good here! The leafs and stuff is really beautiful! It makes everything so vivid! If you stare at the pic for a long time you actually see them moving! :D
