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

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.
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!
