banished prince: Zuko by kelly1412 banished prince: Zuko by kelly1412
"from the day he was banished, the journey began..."

In season3. Zuko remembered the day he set up his journey to capture Avatar and regain his honour.
He feel he was stupid and regreted for followed a wrong destiny.

however...I don't think he was stupid...it must be the most difficult time in his life ...I can't image how suffering he was after being hurt by his father and lost almost everything he had...but he still didn't give up...he set up a new goal even everyone throught it was imposible to achieve...I feel moved about his courage and strength...that's something i really want to have.

Zuko has been panished not because he did something awful. he wasnt a failure, he was still the frist prince of fire native after all.

so... this is how does that moment looks in my mind...Zuko standed in the rain and made his mind--making ever efford to regain his honour.

Wow...holy crap this is awesome! I love that you gave him long hair, and no the blood actually looks good. It adds a unique touch to the overall picture, and I also think it's cool how you added that red(lazer?) thing over his eye. :+favlove:

the Zuko's long hair version once appear in his dream when he's at Ba sen sa. I just love it!! hope can see long hair Zuko in Korra again~
the idea of fire from eye is originally from "Blask Rock Shooter" I somehow comeup at the end in order to improve some kind of rage/determine/or whatever emotion it it...

I saw this on [pixiv] before. Very bueatiful and dramatic, I think Zuko's red eyes show how he realized he's life is gona to change, and well never change normal again.

OMG I want to give him a big hug!!!!

yes, I do submit to Pixiv as well. but it obviously more people loves Avatar here and I could communicate with.
I can image if you give him a hug then, his life may change again! come on and hug him la~

ennn....why red eye...good qustion. actually...I'm not sure as well. For me it's sort of strong emotion. you know, for Zuko things changed all at a moment. I put all those complicate emotion into the firing eye. you can interpretate it as determination or anger or whatever you think it is :)

HOLY CRAP! This soooo well done. Just, oh my god. The long hair is something I haven't seen before on Zuko, but it looks really cool. Ah man this is just so intense, gotta love the eye. It adds drama! hahaha The blood is relatively mild, but just enough that it definitely gives the image some kind of context and emotion. Ok ok i'll stop gushing now.
