Prizeart : Forgotten Fairytale by sylvacoer Prizeart : Forgotten Fairytale by sylvacoer
Series: Tales of the Spirit World: Fall of the Blue Spirit

Prizeart for :iconstormbringer246:, runner up for the Poster Design category in my "Iroh's Army" Fanart Contest. Iroh wants YOU to join!

Requested: "a painted spirit fanart" - meaning, Blue Spirit x Painted Lady! Now, since there's lots of that goin' 'round (and since I'm not feeling particularly friendly to zu-idiot at the moment), I decided to take a different tack!

---

The story is not often told these days, for to speak it is to acknowledge that there are stronger forces than Fire. So listen well, as I here tell...

... of the most loyal Warrior of the King of Heaven's Fire...
... of the Sacred Maiden of the River...
... of their doomed love...
... for a demon cannot love a goddess.

:evillaugh: Interpret as you please. Sgt. Stormbringer, thank you for your efforts! :salute:

Interesting take on these two background characters - we know next to nothing about the 'Blue Spirit' from the show, or if there was ever a spirit/demon/what-have-you in the first place. I really like how you interpreted it.

I even went so far as to write the origin of the Avatarverse and the "legend" of the Blue Spirit: [link]

I was thinking of doing something like this. You did it good. The Blue Spirit, The Painted Lady, The Blind Bandit or Runaway. Some kinda superhero thing happening.

I'm not a giant Zutara fan, but this peice of work is amazing. I love the Painted Lady's expression, and the blue spirit looks very dramatic. (Its hard not to be when wearing an awesome mask).

sylvacoer Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Eh, I like Zutara for the art, but really, this picture is how I imagine the "real" Painted Lady and Blue Spirit - how they might have appeared in the avatar-verse's mythic past. Yay for goddesses and demons! :w00t:

the prompt is zutura, but what i ended up doing with the characters was something else entirely.

fufufufu, 'sides, i ship zutara for the awesome art, more than for the actual characters (particularly zuko. ick :bleh:). :iconimhappyplz:

Wow.

The colors are my favorite part, wild and vibrent, they lend life to your art. Also, you made the blue spirit mask even more bada** then it was in the show, great job.

Bad points-Katara's eyes are too big.

Keep it up!
