Azula-loneliness by kelly1412 Azula-loneliness by kelly1412
script on the picture:
“Most of the rulers suffering from loneliness”

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

I was making new brush and doing some pattern test for my other project... but somehow end up with this...
(I'm sort of thinking to cosplay this version cus I have a similar outfit ^^;)

The lineart is actually done half brush hand draw and half digitally. could you see the difference?
... but I forgot to save the brush!!! how stupid I was...Orz

--custom reference:[link]
--wintersweet(Chimonanthus praecox)is a symbol of brave, lonely, proud and aloof, because it only blooms in snow when all other flower fade.

*ink on paper, Photoshop CS4, 1.5 hours
*paper texture, cloth pattern, flower painting all from google image.

Generally I really don't like Azula (because she's nuttier than a pecan pie), but I really love this picture. Especially her hair.

Man.....I can sense the lonely atmosphere just by looking at her expression. As if I can relate one particular song to her loneliness. :lonely:

“Most of the rulers suffering from loneliness” You're really clever you know that? :D It only take seven words just to tell me (or us viewers) everything about the story behind your artwork. :clap:

You're making this fanart by using Chinese art painting-style? That is so cool! Most people don't see many fanarts that are using this style in DA. It is truly unique and appropriate to the Asian culture emphasis in the ATLA world setting. :wow:

"I'm sort of thinking to cosplay this version cus I have a similar outfit ^^;" Really!? Then you should wear them and take pictures of you in your said outfit! Then submit those pictures in DA! I hope that I can get to see your looks in that outfit of yours. :la::happybounce::squee::excited:

"I'm a very shy person..." :aww:

Don't worry, I understand you. :) Believe me, I do! That's actually (maybe ^^;) the reason why I didn't put an avatar on my profile. (Although the main reason is to keep myself "mysterious" :XD:)

Hmm, I guess you're right about that. I'll start to find or create an avatar for my profile soon. ;) (I hope it's suitable to my 'real life personality" :XD:)

that phrase is actually from a Chinese poem.the whole sentence could be translated as “Most of the rulers suffering from loneliness, only their stories become legend”. I love the sentence it's so sad but epic at the same time.

I'm not using Chinese art painting-style intentional. That's just a style I'm developing at the moment (feel tried of using pixiv style or Anime cel style). I wish I'd have the capability to do more official sort of looking fanart... but it's just too difficult for me to imitate...
anyway, the show dose have a deep reference back to Chinese culture and visual style, so I decided to go with my color-ink-painting sort of look. (It is not applied it to all works, cus it's a time consuming technique)

"that phrase is actually from a Chinese poem." :ohmygod: How I can be so ignorant!? :facepalm: When you have enlightened me about it, I was like this: :slamhead: Mentally speaking.

" I wish I'd have the capability to do more official sort of looking fanart... but it's just too difficult for me to imitate..." Don't worry about it, don't be so negative. :):hug: You have the talent to do those said fanart, it's just only take some time to sharpen your art technique. Trust me, one day in the future (but not so distant future) you will be able to do it. ;)

the problem is... I can't over cross the nervous when facing the camera (I usually the one behind it not in front of it)...and neither my looking nor temperament has little similarities to her... which make me even hesitate...

zutaraxmylove Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Student Filmographer
ahh i understand how u feel.
i like to be behind the camera too. but sometimes, what you really need is urself to act something out.
u can try to get people to do this and that but it may never be exactly wut u want.
thats when u step in front of the camera.

a lot of people dont look like the character they play. its up to ur acting that makes it believable

but... I'm pretty shy in public T_T even can't talk properly not mention acting or playing ... I've
never play any character I love, afraid of ruining them. I admire you, I hope I could have half of your confident and talent, I might be able to do this.:tears:
(another problem is...I never succeed in putting up contact lenses! without glasses I'm half blind = =|||...OTZ)

ahhh i dont have that much confidence. most of my cosplay pictures are from home in my basement.
think of it this way.
when you're wearing a character's outfit, you are no longer urself. u are that character. even if u ruin them or not, u are not urself when dressed as them.

ahh the contacts problem. i couldnt get them on for a long time but practice makes perfect.
