Azula _ Childhood Dream by kelly1412 Azula _ Childhood Dream by kelly1412
Have you ever put on your father's suit or mother's make-up and dream working like them when you are little? Be honest, i did.

So I apply this concept to Azula.
She covered herself with Ozai's royal mantle and pretend to be the Fire Lord, which demonstrate the over-sized ambitions in this young lady's heart.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

This piece is made for my second tutorial, in which Iíll introduce an easy and quick coloring process.

And you can also see how the color tongue and ambient light helped to create a "dark ambition" kind of atmosphere here, even the lineart is bit sweet.

The tutorial is under going, but not as fast as I expect, so it may need couple of more days to finish. Anyway, it's a good learning experience for me as well. And you still can have a try first, so it may be easier for you to find the technique you need in the tutorial.

Here is the lineart and here is the tutorial

-------------------------------------------------------------------

--coloring time: 50min coloring +20min after effect (this part maybe not be included in the tuto)
--Software: Photoshop or Sai both Ok
--A tablet is not necessary needed, but with mouse it may need more time and patient.

I'm pretty sure she dreamed of roasting live turtle-ducks and then decking the palace with their entrails when she was a little girl. She really does remind me of a psychopath I went to school with in junior high who disemboweled a desert hare he caught at school one time. Everybody had to be sent home early and have mandatory therapy sessions after that.

But I never put on makeup when I was little. I actually pretended to be my baby brother or wore princess dresses.

I can imagine little Azula chasing around after little Zuko wearing that mantle (or something else, acting like it's that mantle), causing him some chaos. :laughing:

Awesome stuff as usual!

Seriously you want to know?
If in ancient Chinese Empire, which is one of fire nation's main references, if an emperor found his son doing this, he will face a execution. No kidding.
Trying any emperor’s belongings will be consider as aim to grab throne from the current ruler, if it was caught, they will be send to death penalty without any excuse.

Thank you.
this is a way I used a lot in past, but not often now. techniquely, it's an efficient drawing way, but somehow, i feel it too step by step, more like making a products rather than arts, and it killed random possiblities in the process.
but anyway, I think it's a good way for entering to digital world, and also a good way to complite one piece in limited time

She's so cute!!! Hahaha you should draw something like this but like after the war... Like she sitting on Zuko's throne while he is not looking, and ordering people around. xD
LOL Ignore my crazyness!!! I just love that as always ;D

:iconkelly1412:
kelly1412 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think for grown up Azula, if she wants to sit there, she'll take over zuko and grab the the throne rather than do it furtively. she can't under any boby.
