AtLA: Flaming Knives by purplerebecca AtLA: Flaming Knives by purplerebecca
Mai and Zuko from Avatar: the Last Airbender, in their 20's.

I LOVE this show. It is the most brilliant animated series ever created, and if you haven't watched all 3 seasons, go do it. Now.

Zuko is my favorite character: he has the most fantastic character arc, and is awesome in general. Mai was fabulous from the beginning. "The Boiling Rock" clinched it.

watercolor, ink and white colored pencil

Only some of the highlights are colored pencil. It's watercolor, really. Watercolor much is easier than full colored pencil to me. :)

Thanks!

Love the poses. Very dynamic! Hot shirtless Zuko was also a nice touch. Mai probably knows how lucky she is too.

Have you been here, yet?
