young princess- pride, smart, powerful and elegant by kelly1412 young princess- pride, smart, powerful and elegant by kelly1412
I think I did a bit too much "innocent " Azula plot recently, it's time to turn back to her real character as my best princess: pride, smart, powerful and elegant.

actully it was also a request by :iconiaiusjello:, he asked me if I got more "aged 14" drawings of Azula [link] couple of days ago. So I searched amoun my messy sketch papers and selected these four (but it's more like a aged 10-12 portray) and did some simple coloring. sorry for the poor quility.

here are all my private sketch for young princess Azula. I was bit unsatisfied with her outfit in the show, I'm not critising the design and I understand it's hard to require an animation to provide complicated and various custom ...
but ...
she is the frist princess of the strongest country in Avatar would right? there is no reason for her to not dress up fancy!!

yes, I'd like my princess to look more fancy! therefor I dressed her with some of my favorite type of outfits~ :XD: and pls note, this is not a custom design work. although some may contain a little "fire nation element", it is after all a casual sketch to satisfy my personal interest, don't take it seriouly ^^b

the four outfits are (from left to right): princess casual wear; sword trainning uniform, basics trainning uniform and formal dress.

* the reason why there is sword training uniform is because I believe one of Azula's fire bending form should be a type of chinese traditional sword martrial art which also use two fingers to guide the Chi and movement.

it's good to know that you're a Fire Nation fanatic! XDXD Fire Nation FTW!

i love the sketchy style of it, and also the watercolor-like coloring. i just like rough sketches better than clean ones XD and my fave outfit here is the formal one; it makes her look vulnerable and her face there is unsure of how she should act in social situations. sooooooo cute!! it also reminds me of Toph's formal outfit too.

also i recommend trying to make an artwork featuring Azula with her mother; a popular subject, because of her tragic character.

you're not the only one! my hand always draws anything fire nation first XD Fire Nation is just that awesome, and it is the coolest among the four nations, even if it became evil.

The thing is... my favorite character suppose to be Toph... I think... but I rarely can capture any image about her, she is well developed and nothing to complain with.
however fire nation appealing me more, there are too many plot I could draw with. It sounds wired, but they really like fire and burning my emotions. for me fire nation is a pathetic and cute nation, it's not real evil...just... too complicated...maybe...

She looks lovely!! I love every outfit, they are gorgeous! Though my favourite one is the sword training uniform! I like to think she dressed like that when taught by Master Piandao (it's canon that Zuko was taught by him, so why not Azula?) and your idea about her firebending style coming from that way of controling chi is really amazing! :squee:

She always looks so wonderful in your style, I hope you do more sketches like that from her. She barely had the opportunity to dress up in something that wasn't her militar regalia, which is really nice btw, but is like a wave of fresh air to see her wearing other kind of clothing. And your kid!Azula is so cute I love her to pieces.

Wow, these are really good! I especially love the ones on each side but they're all great. The formal outfit to the right, the two sweeping training uniforms next to it, and the demure yet beautiful casual outfit. These are really great, especially for "sketches." You're right, she looks more 10-12 than the accurate aged 14 but it does look like something she'd wear in the "Zuko Alone" flashbacks.
