Fire Lord Azula by invisiblejohnny Fire Lord Azula by invisiblejohnny
I'm a huge Avatar fan, just never had the drive to do some fanart, and since Book 3 came out I felt like it was a good time to try one. XD Just as the title says... I know it didn't happen that way but I just felt really bad for her at the end of the series. Don't get me wrong, the fight between her and Zuko stole the show in my opinion. Her whole "descent into madness" just left me, I dont know... disturbed and just sad... I liked Azula, even if she was evil but I wish Bryke had gone more into what happened to her instead of some crappy sentence she was sent to some kind of mental facility and monitored around the clock. Been looking for any post-comet stories about her and theres not too many :( If anyone knows of one, can they let me know? Enough ranting, please leave reviews!!

Looked kinda fuzzy so heres a close up of her face

So cool!

Love this image, even though she never deserved to be Fire Lord in the first place, so she deserved her defeat in the end. I could probably feel sorry for her in a way after that, but still...Zuko is the one who deserves that place more than she ever could. I think I might have missed the sentence about what happened to her after that. If she really ended up in a mental facility, don't know if that is worse than prison.

You know who deserves that title? Lu Ten. He should come back from the dead and be zombie!Fire Lord.

As we should have seen Azula. Love

Was this a commission by someone. Or is this your work? Sorry to sound rude, just curious.

Great work. Really love the details, on the cloak

You mentioned her descent into madness.  Given her mental condition, I would kill to see some of the legislations and laws she ends up passing.

Generic Adviser #1: Okay Azula, we are finalizing a law that says all paintings must be made out of noodles.
:iconazulaplz::iconsaysplz:Yes, that is my latest decree.
Generic Adviser #2: Are you sure Fire Nation artists will take to that well
:iconcrazulaplz::iconsaysplz:Are you questioning your Fire Lord?
Generic Adviser #2: No Ma'am, we will pass this law right away.

You know, this reminds me. Zuko's daughter is going to appear in next week's episode of Legend Of Korra. I think it would be fitting if the current Fire Lord happens to resemble Azula.
Spitestar Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
She would make a scary fire lord.
aurora-celest Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
It's amazing how she takes after her father. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. :/
blackace202 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
ah Azula the perfect wife lol
2toneSoldier Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
It's funny that the writers made the title "Fire Lord" unisex even though women technically can't be called "Lords" they can only be called "Ladies".
Charcoalstar Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012
I really love her. She's been hurt so bad. She didn't get what Zuko got. He got a second chance, with his uncle. She was left with her father.
KingVerdo Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Apparently there is suppose to be a comic telling how Azula's stay in the asylum affected her. A mental health facilitate is an asylum which is actually pretty cruel seeing how she down right lost it. Since Azula's mind snapped she would be tortured by her thoughts and her ultimate failure. Almost would have been better if Zuko mercy killed her in the end.

This is so awesome I totally love this!! :D
Fang110 Featured By Owner May 5, 2012
You know, since Zuko's daughter is the current firelord in the Avatarverse, she might actually look like this.
HarukaAmaraTenou Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2012
And finally someone shows how the series should have ended... XD Love Azula so much... She should've won, in my opinion...

Uhhm... whoa. Azula SOOOO should have been Fire Lady, even if only for a little while before Zuko took over.
StopStealingMy7Up Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013
It's Fire Lord, not Fire Lady. Old comment, but just saying. Azula was called Fire Lord many, many times during the finale.
JellyfishDiver Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, I posted that before she was Fire Lord.
StopStealingMy7Up Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2013
Do you mean before you personally saw the episodes where she was called Fire Lord? Because your comment was from 2011, and those episodes aired in 2008. Her title had been official for three years already. The title of the deviation was clearly Fire LORD Azula besides. Just wondering.
zukaang-tyzula-ftw Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2011
Aw fuck! she's Fire Lord? i'm moving to the North Pole... :sprint:

you did a great job, love the picture!
Kimikulka Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2011
I love Azula too!!!! <hug> Friends forever!?
donobowk Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011
I like this, just decided I wanted to do a playthough of Dragon age 2 based on her, I just have a desire to be evil and stuck up
Rhubaton Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2011
This is scary. :O

Like seriously, I can just see the raw passion, emotion, dedication, but also hatred, fear and seriousness in her!

I just love this picture. It is amazing!
MayBeWitch Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2011
Awesome! I love this picture! I liked Azula, because she is really great character!
I love, really love her face, smirk and glance!
Chocopie09 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010
WOW. Azula was one of my favorite characters in ATLA. :) I was sad she didn't get a happier ending, because I felt she still had a chance for redemption.
Anyway, great picture!
Bankaisu Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2010
:O_o: Ah thank goodness that Zuzu is our Fire Lord!!!!! Azula would had BANNISHED EVERYONE IN THE FIRE NATION!!!!:XD:

This is her if she would have become Fire Lord before going crazy...

MissMoonfire Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010
Women is a lord? Azula is a Firelady xDD
StopStealingMy7Up Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013
Nope. Azula was called Fire Lord. Watch the finale again if you don't believe it.
Scara161 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
This is really good! But the thought of Firelord Azula is frightening O.o
Puppylove186 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2010
Wow!!! :explosion:

Thanks to this extremely beautiful portrayal of Azula, you have become my ultimate favorite avatar fan-artist!:heart: I have to see more Avatar work from you! Please tell me you will create more pieces of art like this and draw even more characters!
dementedmonkey Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2010
I agree, they could have told us more about what happen to Azula... She really is one of the coolest characters in Avatar. I hope they tell it in the new series coming up :3

This is a great pic of Azula! It really captures her personality XD
beyoncerules Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2010  Student General Artist
yeah im an big azula fan also i hated when she went insane though. is she still fourteen in this picture or what
iaiusjello Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010
She looks more majestic than Ozai ever did. She'd have been the smartest Fire Lord since Sozin.
Kaytizzle Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010
"Fire Lord a crazy mo-fo."

Seriously though, this is really well done. Good job. C:
