Fire and Earth by Hardedge-Maelstrom Fire and Earth by Hardedge-Maelstrom
Commissioned by :icongossymer:

Adults Zuko and Toph practicing their fire and earth bending combos...because you know, flaming boulders are more painful than normal boulders?

Obviously I went way overboard again...*sigh*

I think going overboard is the only way you could have handled something this epic. Nice.

Impressive work, the rendition of both characters and the background are all top notch ... +10 for Avatar fanart Awesomeness.

Having just seen the new trailer for live Avatar:the last air bender movie adaption .. i realized i should go back and rewatch the animated series instead of waiting for the movie .. the live adaption looks way off.

I understand the director M.Night Shyamalan is telling the story from his point of view .. but they changed too many things .. for example Ang's personality was charming and likable in the series but real Ang is nothing like the animated Ang in terms of personality and appeal .. he feels angst driven and too freaking serious from the clips i saw .. they removed the scar from Zuko and the actors used for Sokka and Katara are nothing like the original characters (in both looks and attitude)

Thanks!

Actually from what I saw, Sokka looks fine, it was Katara that looked completely out of place lol. I have no problems with the actor for Zuko either, my main gripe was that they made his scar so small it's hardly noticable, and that was one of his distinguishing characteristics too :noes:

I just hope it doesn't turn out to be another DB: Evolution >.<

Cool designs on classic Avatar characters. I like the Toph rendition the most. Amusing though, Zuko looks so different with a beard; would he really grow one?

In the series, Zuko is generally always depicted as a lean yet strong person physically. This version of Zuko definitely looks more rugged and built. I would certainly like to imagine this version resuming his own breakdancing style of Firebending. haha.

The flame swords are a really nice touch by the way. I forgot to mention that earlier.
