Azula: Black Future by lonefirewarrior Azula: Black Future by lonefirewarrior
This song was my spirit guide through the creation process: [link]
Now, I won't say you should click it and listen to it. But I will say if you don't, I'll massacre you.

After too long, I finally unveil the second redesign(or maybe first since I didn't really change much for Korra. Then again the folder icon is supposed to be Aang so maybe we're back onto second. You know what? Fuck it. We're on third.) for the Avatar: Black Future series. What started off as a CoD: Black Ops 2 zombies sort of tribute is now a modern/semi futuristic take on The Last Airbender. Older characters, meaner surroundings and lots of metal. I can honestly say that despite the background being a quick screen grab from Garry's Mod, I worked harder on this than any other digital painting I've done. I guess the main inspiration behind her look wa Jill Valentine's BSAA gear from RE5.

Aang is next up on the list then I might take a shot at Zuko again(damn Dell and their shitty ass computers).

Photoshop for Azula herself and Garry's Mod only for the background

addendum: made some changes, added smoke.

Even if this made with Garry's Mod, it still shows good results of the photoshop work with pencils and brushes, it's sad that not so many people use this method these days. It is really enhanced and I can see the originality of a process making this kind of work so illustrated, in a good way. And I like the style, like how it is actually made in a cartoonish style, loved it. And the shadows are really perfect. The portrait's illustrated description of the character is bright by showing her abilities and originality. In conclusion, this impressed me. I don't see any disadvantages at all. Good luck with the similiar works, you do it very well.

You accomplished the lean and sinister aura you were looking for in this, that's for sure. I might've gone for dark pants, and her outfit looks a bit paramilitary for a princess with some serious resources behind her. Not that it looks ineffective at all, or that is should be more bombastic, just something slightly more "official": even as much as a Fire Nation insignia or something of that nature would have worked. I wasn't sure how I felt about her face -- it seemed slightly wooden to me upon first glance -- but the less rounded features make sense in the context of this series. Overall, bravo, sir. I'm intrigued, now, to see your take on Aang.
