Broken Angel by kelly1412 Broken Angel by kelly1412
Gift to ~Gungelion, he wanted to see angelic Azula,
but sorry I think this probably isn't what you wanted to see.
The out come became a painful and sad picture, 'cuz the only image I could think of to fit the title is "A Broken Angel". It's still very OOC (anyway, doesn't matter to me :XD:)

Though I love Azula, I never said she's a good person. (some people seem to misunderstand, sorry, maybe I didn't express myself clearly.) She is definitely a villain, I always knew that. But I believe she was not born evil, whic Michael and Bryan also confirmed in one of their interviews. I'm still curious as to what happened that twisted her character so. This also made me feel that she's like a seriously injured angle.

Anyways.

I was in a bad mood those days, for my work is driving me mad... I sort of transferred my depression to the art and made it more and more bloody... if you feel uncomfortable...I apologise.

Who can teach me how to coloring in Sai ... My photoshop is nearly crashing QAQ

Its tragic, it's raw, it's beautiful, it's Azula perfectly.

It's gonna cost a lot of money to clean that dress. Anyway, why would Azula wear a dress? Azula isn't the type of person who would wear dresses (or skirts).

I agree, her father morphed her into what she was. It was clear all she wanted was love, but she only feels like she got it from her father who was a power hungry man who inherited his traits from HIS dad. Ha ha ha!!  This is a very pretty picture, lovely job.

Bad parenting from Ozai and rejection from her mother made her like that. She does not what love is nor is loved by anyone. Is really tragic :(

I hope you are feeling better by now :hug:

This is what I honestly think that this is the true Azula, A fallen angel with her wing(s) cut off

It's great! Simple artwork yet perfectly symbolizes Azula's sophisticated soul / life. Her expression and the broken wing and the blood are nice touch, I love the design of the wings :heart: Really nice work!

Wow, so rare that I see Azula this way. I especially love the wings and the expression on her face. It's almost heartbreaking. She really is an injured angel if one thinks about it.

For a Sister:

content with sitting,
the world in its love and its pain -
scared and frightened -
care wrought of tears
for the mother once loved and the father never giving.
on a whim we may form, gather up the brambles of our broken self and beat ourselves over the head with it, shape ourselves anew.
In a life we are guided, by those we longed to care for, those that we shed tears for. That which we regret, those that grate at our minds with their whispers and half remembered heartbeats.
We are led by the hand with expectation, pushed over the stones and flung to the bridges our grandfathers drew, our fathers built, and our mothers paid for.
Bridges made to fall and crush a mind.
I found myself on the other side - less than and other than and with time and loss, more than.
I walked over that bridge into the arms of those I did not think to love or care for.
To find a place in my heart I did not think I owned.
Become that which I learnt to be and know.
The world is here and so am I.

Join me dear sister.

I forgive you.

I really like the potential future of Zuko & Azula's relationship. I like to think he would reach out to her and try to lead her to a path of sanity and redemption.

Beautiful as always Kel. I especially love the expression you gave her, I think it speaks volumes to how she truly felt inside. I also really like the wings you gave her, they aren't the typical birdlike/feathery wings that you see people giving to angels, they're much more ethereal and silken. It's a good match for Azula, in my opinion.

I just feel I'm away too far from Canon. uhhh...not sure it's good or not.

I didn't think much when i was drawing the wings. Sai is such an amazing tool for making lineart, just can't help but draw lots lines :D

Vahnati Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2012
Bah, Canon. I never stop to worry about how close or far I am from Canon, if it looks good to you keep drawing.

I'm afraid I don't know much (anything) about the digital art programs, but if you say Sai is good I'll take your word for it!

thank you for being so tolerant to me >v<~
but i'm also afraid there are always some fan who don't like off-Canon(I don't know the words, sorry) or OOC stuff. Even for myself, I feel some OOC fanarts are bit tricky. But the eternal motivation to make fanarts/fics is to satisfy/visualize one's own thoughts. So as long as it contain love, it works to me :)

:iconvahnati:
Vahnati Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012
Off Canon is a good enough way to put it, really the only other words for it would be out of character (OOC), so you really didn't mess anything up there ; D

Couldn't have put that last part better myself (honest! You didn't even make any real mistakes there, I'm proud of you!), I feel the exact same way. There will always be those naysayers who don't like out of character depictions but to hell with them, they aren't the ones we create for. If not ourselves, who? If other people love what we create along the way, then that's just all the better.

Don't ever stop what you love doing Kel. Please, don't ever stop what you love doing.

how did I missed this. Thank you for telling me
I feel exactly the same as you in this issue.
but here is an other problem: I feel I'm becoming more focus on technique sometime, but forgot the main point of making a fanart is always love. I know it's not good, but still hard to avoid......
Reply
:iconvahnati:
Vahnati Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012
Well it's natural, we always want to become better at what we love doing, and technique can be a very important part of getting better. We just have to keep in mind the true reason for why we do these things. If we do that, it can never be said that we have failed.

Now if I only took my own advice a little more to heart... /sigh

Beautiful!

And to possibly answer your question (or raise even more question...)
I read somewhere that Azula became...Azula...err...twisted...Umm
Yeah she became the way she was because of her mother. Not to say it was her mother's fault but she was treated differently by her mother. But since her mother disappeared when she was younger and simply being raised by her father, its said that he influenced her twisted attitude.

It could be competently wrong of course, but i recall reading that somewhere ^^

Anyways, love your work! There's so many meanings and messages guh! Just love it!!
