Azula Appreciation Day


Here is my very very very late submission for Azula Appreciation Day (last Friday). For those of you not familiar with the name, she's a prime character in the tv series Avatar: The Last Airbender. If you don't know what that show is, you're missing out on life. Seriously.

So for non-watchers, who is Azula? Without spoiling anyone, she's a villain in the show. Azula is the princess of the Fire Nation, and a power hungry fire bending prodigy. Throughout the series, she's usually seen plotting to capture the Avatar. She's not a favourite character of mine (who am I kidding, I love all the characters in Avatar...except Jet..and Ozai), but her development in the show is what interests me - especially in contrast to her brother Zuko.

On a another note, this is my very first flash animation! Very basic, very easy...nope. It took me 3-5 hours to figure out because I had no idea how to use it. Especially alpha levels. But I admit it was fun changing a simple illustration to an animation. Time to make some more basic ones and improve!

Here's a quick gif of the painting process.
