Healing Scars by Animaker131 Healing Scars by Animaker131
I know it's extremely late (morning actually) but I caught myself coloring this sketch I did the night before and had to post it. CX Now I know who Katara and Zuko are suppose to be with and I'm okay with that, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't LOVE to see them together if that's how it could be. They just have such a dynamic that you don't see in their other relationships and it drives me nuts. CX I loved the idea of Katara kissing Zuko's scar because it seemed like a neat way of showing that he was finally being accepted as the honorable spirit that he was despite the scars his past had given him. I LOVE ZUKO. I'm actually getting drawing inspiration flowing all over the place because of him (that hasn't happened for a while).

The hands were SO HARD. Normally I don't really have too much trouble but with them being intertwined in such an unusual way, it threw me off. Anatomy perspective has really been a thorn in my side too, but I think I'm getting it figured out now. You have no idea how many times I had to redo Katara's arm and shoulder. :faint:

Anywho, I'd better get some sleep. It'll be a short night with the busy stuff I've got going tomorrow- er... today. CX Enjoy!

UGGGH THIS IS SO GORGEOUS. I love the interaction between the two, there's such passion and love there. It's driving me crazy, Zutara, whyyy.

I especially love his hand over hers like that; it seems like the two of them so well, Zuko desperately needing love and keeping Katara's hand on his face, but she wasn't going to pull away anyway. The cropping and composition is adorable as well, I would buy a print of this if you sold them in a heartbeat ;__; I love it!!

Awe, thank you so much! I'm glad you like how it turned out. I definitely enjoyed creating it. I do actually have a couple of prints of this to sell if you're interested. I think I have an 11x14..? I'd have to check.

Amazing picture! I love the shadowy ambience you made this piece have, really makes it powerful. Zuko is my favorite character (along with Toph, she is too cool!) and I always wished him and Katara had ended up together. Definitely favoriting this!
